I want to thank all of you who continue to stop by and link up every week, it means a lot! If you haven't heard, I have something great in the works for my blog, and I will be revealing it any day now! Make sure you follow along in some way so I can share the excitement with you! Here's a hint....it's about you.
Can't wait to see what you have to share this week!
I don't know about you, but sometimes I am just at a loss on what to make for dinner. I need something easy, that requires little brain work, so I can help the kids with homework, while answering calls, emails, laundry, dishes, breaking up fights... so I threw this little BBQ chicken together the other night, and it was delish!
2 half boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of brown sugar BBQ sauce (I used Kraft)
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp Grill Mates Smokehouse Maple seasoning
It's pretty explanatory. Sprinkle the bread crumbs on the chicken, cover with BBQ sauce, and sprinkle with seasoning. Place into pre-heated oven of 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. It must have been the combination for the brown sugar and smokehouse maple flavorings, but it was really tasty.
These silly little girls. Anika had her choir program last Thursday, and of course I had to have some pictures of my superstar before we left. And it turned into and impromptu family photo op.
The choir program was amazing. The 4th and 5th graders exceeded my expectations by far. Its so nice to see kids doing positive things. The 5th grade band had their last performance directly after the choir sang.
Guess who wants to play the clarinet next year? I think I have a mini wonder woman on my hands. ;)
Today I just wanted to share with you a little project that began last summer that I finally completed about a month ago. When we were rebuilding the fence last year we ended up with some old fence posts lying around. Well, I decided to get a little creative.
I had been wanting an herb planter box for quite some time, so I finally decided to make my own. I have all of the pictures on how I actually made this, but they are on a SD card somewhere that I will have to locate. :) In the mean time I will show you what I did after I built it.
I painted it a cheery bright yellow that will stand out in the many cloudy dreary Oregon days of drizzle that we have. Then I tried wood burning for the first time ever. I think it turned out rather well.
I get to look at it out my kitchen window and love that I can go out and grab thyme, oregano, and chives whenever I want. <3
The rains are here today. But yesterday, the weather was still nice. I had a few hours with just Noah so we decided to go for a walk. Normally I walk/jog after the kids go to bed a couple times a week around the high school track, but yesterday we decided to take a stroll around our small town. I love small towns. I love walking past old houses and yards full of history, full of life. I love the old churches with steeples full of character. Everything seems so much more magnificent when you open your eyes to explore the little things.
