September Catch Up

GOOD GRAVY it’s been forever since a real post. My apologies. Let’s play catch up a little. :)

I’ve been to Target a lot recently. Add these pretty turquoise plates to my Christmas list!

And if you haven’t been in a while, go check out their clearance too, because this cardigan was $6. I almost bought twelve other things because the deals were so good.

sept20

We finally got this little gallery wall up behind our bedroom door, and it makes me SO happy. :) YAY for Michael’s having white matte frames on clearance…$4 a piece!

Jackers and I had some good snuggles and Jesus time in between editing sessions last week. The cold front made us a little lazy though. ;)

sept02

This handsome man escorted me to the fair on Saturday for a feast of fatty foods. ;)

sept03

He loves that Root Beer!

sept05

And the whole world knows what I love.

sept07

I’ve been having way too many cheat days on my diet (Coldstone is worth it), but I’m going to be good until we head to Florida next week. :D

sept08

We’ve enjoyed the beginning of fall with some backyard play time.

Mama and I have had some morning walks in the lovely weather. :)

sept11

Jackers has been extra bummish lately. It’s a hard life.

sept13

These are the most handsome faces I ever did see. ;)

sept14

And this morning was spent at the fair (again) with mama and mama-in-law!

sept18

Baby goat for the win.

sept15

Roasted corn bliss.

sept16

And for the record, spiral spuds are a gift from the Lord.

The CaitPhoto side of life is about to get REAL busy, but I have a couple posts lined up before we leave for vacation, and I promise some good, picture-filled posts when we return. :) Happy Tuesday, loves!

Garlic Panko Chicken

My food finds on Pinterest have been striking out lately, so I experimented a little on my own and found a new chicken dish that Andrew requested go in the rotation! I love anything with a good crunch, and this is a winner. And the best part? It’s the easiest thing ever…so easy that I feel silly even posting directions because you could probably figure it out. But just in case…here you go. ;)

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 package boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I use Tyson’s Right Size Portions)
2-3 tbsp butter, melted
Garlic powder
Panko breadcrumbs (I use Progresso)

Directions

1. Clean and cut each chicken breast into 2-3 pieces.
2. Melt butter in a bowl, and dip and coat each piece of chicken.
3. Sprinkle a bit of garlic powder on each piece according to taste.
4. Dip and coat each piece of chicken in panko breadcrumbs until covered.
5. Lay chicken in a greased baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for an hour, or until top looks slightly browned and crispy. I sometimes bake it a little longer to get more crunch ;)

It’s great by itself, but it’s also good with a nice, cheesy sauce. We tried out Prego’s artisan three cheese with it last night, and it was delish!

Happy feasting. ;)

Happy Friday

September is off to a quick start, and I’m so happy it’s the weekend! Andrew and I are getting Papa Angelo’s for date night. Hallelujah, amen. ;)

Here’s what we’ve been up to this week.

I had TWO day dates with my Mama!

And glorious Olive Garden salad with extra parmesan cheese. :D

We hit up the zoo early Wednesday morning to beat the heat, and it was practically empty. Perfection!
