Foodie Friday-Wow Chicken

Okay so this isn't really called Wow Chicken but that is what it made me say the first time I tried it.  I found the recipe for Lemon and Garlic Chicken at Mel's Kitchen Cafe and boy am I glad I did!  It's easy and one of the best marinades I have found.  It will for sure be replacing the pre-made stuff in the bottle that I tend to reach for.  I adapted the recipe a bit to meet my families tastes.  This requires at least 8 hours of time to marinate, so plan ahead.

You will need:
4 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
Some salt and Pepper
1 pound chicken breasts I used chicken tenders
Pretty easy, mix, pour over chicken, and marinate in the fridge! You do need to marinate overnight or all day.  I started mine in the morning before work and cooked them up for dinner that night.
We grilled ours but you can also probably do them on the stovetop as mentioned on Mel's Kitchen Cafe.

So good all on it's own but you should make extra so you can use the leftovers in another recipe (or two!)  Next week I will show you what I used the chicken for!

Button Hoopla

Seems like I have been away from the blog forever!  We bought a house, moved, and then went on a long weekend getaway not too long after the moving craziness.  I feel like I haven't slowed down in over a month! 

Even though I haven't unpacked all of my craft room yet I have made a few things for swaps.  Seems like everyone (including me) wants hoops of some sort in the Ongoing Wish Swap I do every month.  I can embroider a bit, but I am really liking some of the hoops that involve more than just stitches. 

This particular hoop was on a wish list and seemed like something I could easily do.  I ordered the right colored buttons and just happened to have the perfect cloth.  Adia even helped me place some of the buttons. The only thing I wish I had done was maybe dye the hoop to be blue or green. 

So here you have my Seahorse Button Hoopla.

Now I need to find something to do with all the left over green and blue buttons I have!  Any ideas?

Summer Jewels

These colors remind me of summer, sunning on the beach.  This set could be worn together or separately depending on your mood.  I am really digging the turquoise colors lately in just about everything, jewelry, shirts, shoes.  Pink? Well I always love pink....

I've been a bit busy making this into our home
