In a large bag crunch up cereal with seasonings. Dip chicken into egg then roll in cereal mixture. Bake on a lightly greased pan at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. MM good!
These are two of my favorite books EVER!!! I don't do a ton of reading...but I do love to read these, over and over again. Alexandra Stoddard writes beautiful books. They have really helped me. I only own 3 of her books. My mom has them all. She is the one who recommended them to me. Under the title of Living a Beautiful Life it reads: 500 ways to add elegance, order, beauty and joy to every day of your life. Under the title of Creating a Beautiful Home it reads: From starting fresh to freshening up-Creative ideas to help you turn your house into a warm and welcoming home.

Over the weekend we had family visit. I love to cook and always like to have some kind of homemade dessert to eat. Well this time I just didn't have enough time for much, so I made my favorite/the easiest cookies in the world...rice krispies treats. If you just add a fancy toothpick and some silver they look stunning!
One of my husbands favorite desserts is banana pudding and vanilla wafers. Last night after dinner, we had these cute and yummy little pies. My kids of course thought they were the coolest thing...they loved getting a whole pie. :)

Yesterday we went to The Plum Tree to drop of the pillows I had made.
Both my mom and Steve's mom celebrate their birthdays during the first week of Aug. They both love when I make them stuff, so I had to come up with something for this year...Explosion books! My friend Bethany, who was one of my neighbors in Germany made one of these for me and gave me the directions too of course. They are fun to make with bright papers and pictures too. I just thought both of our moms might like these. I am really into sepia and black and white pictures right now.

My kids have been eating breakfast outside. Making forts to play in and to read their Magic Tree House books in.
Today I have been busy sewing some pillows together for the Plum Tree.
I really seem to luck out getting good pictures from Walmart and Target. Well I have never used Walmart for pictures here in the United States but in Germany they did a great job.

Since we were so close to Macon we called the kids cousins to see if they wanted to play. Hunter was at his friend's house, so we just picked up Haley and DeeDee. We had stopped at a gas stations for a snack and the kids picked up these candy cigarettes. This picture cracked us up. All those kids do are giggle together anyway.
We ended up going to Warner Robbins AFB to eat and then did a little shopping at their BX. Madi and Haley got 2 matching shirts that they are planning to wear on their next get together. Girls and their clothes!

When I was 12 and in Young Women's we did a lot of recipe swapping. I am so glad we did. I still have all my handwritten recipes and love to use them and laugh at my handwriting from back in the day. Actually this recipe comes from my Aunt Terry. These beans have made me famous in the baked bean business all over the world...in all the states and countries I have lived. Per my friend Susy's (everyday gourmet) request I am posting the original copy of the recipe. As far as the recipe goes it's 1 large can or 2 small cans of the B&M beans. My only alteration is to add 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 1 hour with the lid off.

Love, love, love this paper. Someone out there has a blog that shows the cutest card they made with this same paper....so when I saw the paper yesterday at the Expo I had to snatch a few sheets. I had so much fun staying up until midnight last night making cards.
Okay everyone knows to stay clear of the commissary on a payday but what was up in there today?!? I went to Ft. Gillem today and when I walked into the commissary the line to check out was from the front to the back of the store, wrapped around the milk and cheese area, then down the row of meats to produce and then down that isle all the way to the deli by the front door. Can you believe I still did my shopping and then waited in line for 70 min. To tell you the truth it was actually a little fun. I had some really fun people standing in back of me and also the people in back of them joined the party too.

These people had beautiful Halloween displays.
After all that shopping I was starved. So off to Dave and Buster's we went for some good food and all those games.
What a fun day! Now I am off to go look at my new paper and other gadgets.

Mr. Patriotic and Ms. Independent...they can't get enough of PaPa's bike. PaPa did take them both for a cruise around the neighborhood.
