Happy Friday!!

Hello friends! Happy Friday to you all!! I won't lie...today has been a rough day...Moses is clingy, my head is pounding but the shop....I mean show must go on. Still working hard to catch up to myself and I am hoping that this weekend will do it for me. Doug is off and we are planning to do some YARD-SALE-ING tomorrow morning!! I love weekends when Doug is off. :)
Like I said, Moses has been super clingy today but when I offered him my jar of buttons to play with he jumped out of my arms...and quietly spent the next 30-40 minutes taking them out of one container and putting them into another...ahhhhhhhh.....
The mailman brought me yummy things today...these sweet little dishes from my favorite Etsy potter, lgbrinkley...she is SO sweet...if you haven't gotten a treat from her yet you are seriously missing out!
And yes, my name is Crystal and I am addicted to Julie's signs!! But LOOK at this one! I cannot wait to celebrate each and every event with this CUTE sign!! The bottom part is a chalkboard so you can celebrate everything from birthdays to a lost tooth, to potty training victories to Fridays! You should go get one while you can...I would never mislead you. :)

And last but not least...here is another of my all time favorite recipes. Oven fried chicken...this is not the recipe in its original form because I have changed it to make it a little better. The trick is to 1) spray your pan (I use a glass pan) or use that non-stick foil 2) DO NOT FLIP the chicken over during cooking 3) spray the top of the chicken, once it is in the pan, with PAM.

The BEST Oven Fried Chicken

1/3 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper
Package of Chicken tenders
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. water
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I like the Italian Flavor or you can add some Italian blend seasoning)
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Mix flour and seasonings in shallow dish. Add chicken; toss to coat. Beat egg and water in separate shallow dish. Mix cheese and breadcrumbs in third shallow dish.

DIP chicken in egg mixture, then in cheese mixture, turning over to evenly coat both sides. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish; spray chicken with cooking spray.

BAKE 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through (180°F).
