    About Structure.

    Ex) Mattie, preparing chicken parmigiana in her kitchen, was happy to see C.B. walk in.

    If I want to separate the sentence above, how do I divide that into two sentences?

    I thought... 1) Mattie was happy to see C.B walk in.
    2) She prepared chicken parmigiana in her kitchen.

    I'm not sure if it's right.

    Re: About Structure.

    I think this is correct. To keep the same verb tenses and order of actions you could say:

    1. Mattie was preparing chicken parmigiana in her kitchen.

    2. Mattie was happy to see C.B. walk in.
