Fried chicken dinner lazy dog
I'm not a huge fan of cooking and rarely leave the house for dinner. We just moved to Utah and I'm busy taking care of my new daughter (who hasn't slept through the night yet) and my daughter's friend, who just had her first baby. So far, my daughter is only down for about 8 hours per night and we're all staying up way too late.
While I know it's good to eat a variety of vegetables and things, sometimes I just need something with a very short ingredient list to make me feel better.
In the past, I've had chicken tenders with cheese, bacon and green peppers (sooo cheesy). I've also had fried chicken but always thought it was hard to get it nice and crispy.
We went to Fry Daddy and had the regular fried chicken dinner. A few months ago, I made a bunch of sweet potatoes and decided to give them a spin. The recipe is a little bit different than what I've done in the past because it was a chicken fried sweet potato combo.
1. Preheat oven to 375. Toss all ingredients together and let sit 5-10 min.2. Cut each sweet potato lengthwise. 3. Rub a cast iron skillet with coconut oil and cook the sweet potatoes in the skillet. 4. After you're done with the sweet potatoes, mix the chicken into the sweet potatoes and put the skillet in the oven for 15 min.5. Serve with rice and gravy!
I served it with mashed cauliflower with browned onions and garlic and topped it with some fresh cilantro, shredded cheese, salt and pepper. I got 4 plates out of it and it's all gone already.
We did have this with biscuits and gravy... but in the future, I'm thinking I will just top my chicken tender dinner with rice and gravy and skip the biscuits.

So last month we had such a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at this little getaway. We stayed at the Grand Lodge in Nashville, TN.
We had so much fun. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax.
It's not often you get to take a break from the day to day grind of life. And when you find a getaway that perfectly encompasses everything you want, it's not hard to find yourself wanting more!
And we came home and took 2 days off. It was just us and no little humans (our babies are 6 and almost 3 years old). We were able to fully relax. And with the time off, we got some big projects done. (And by projects, I mean I got my laundry done, the boys got some clothes cleaned and some toys organized for good measure, and I put together a meal plan for the month for cooking on our stovetop only).
I've been itching to do a fun project for a long time, so I was super excited when I saw this post from Cottage Living.
The Cottage Living Blog's June/July/August Project has something for every type of person and every budget. My favorite part? You get to find a project that your family will love.
We all love this little place we got to work on!
This is a huge storage basket, that we've used at our table for as long as we can remember. It was perfect for all of our summer goodies... and as we started clearing out the dishes and organizing the toy box, I realized we needed a basket that fit the kitchen. So we pnted the basket and got to work.
Here is what we did to update this kitchen basket:
1. Put on our rubber gloves and started with the pnting. When you look at the basket, you might see that it's a little old and worn, but it was a very deep green and looked beautiful.
2. In a large pnt bucket with a brush, we started with a light blue and then a medium blue color.
3. And we let it dry. When we put the basket on our table to pnt it, we didn't know it was sitting on a slippery white pnt. But I quickly grabbed my brush and pnted the entire interior of the basket.
4. While the inside of the basket was drying, we cleaned the rest of the basket. The baskets I found were pretty old, and we just did a thorough cleaning inside and out. It was amazing to clean out all of that pnt! It looked great!
5. We then did the exterior with just the white. But it's looking kind of dark. It has a nice, soft texture to it, so it's okay. We will keep that one and use it as a storage basket.
6. Lastly we got to make the handles. We got a handle for each end, and I found some white tape to attach the ends to the front and back side of the basket. You can also tape it onto the bottom and attach it to the sides and the back of the basket. I found the handles on www.furniturewish.com.
7. We found a wonderful little place in our neighborhood that sells baskets. We love this one because it doesn't have any handles, but we like having things on hand when I need them.
Do you need a new kitchen? I'll bet you need some of these tips!
8. I also found this picture online. It's just too cute not to share with you!
