Can I even count how many times I have taken a picture of my .99 cent polka dot plates from Target?! Everything looks good on them. the fruit pizza was really, really good- especially after it had been in the fridge for a tiny bit.
We couldn't find raspberries- but the strawberries were a good substitute....mine is not nearly as cute as Kristen's...food doesn't cooperate quite as much as paint. I had to draw a star in the cream cheese mixture first.
"New" green plates from the thrift store! I love these cheap old plates! I feel like I am eating at Gramma's house again.
Oh! You have to try the curry chicken pitas that we had last night. Really good and PERFECT for a day when you are in the pool with the kids and when you get out it is past supper time and you are all really hungry (as long as you have the chicken cooked up already) you are good!
Curried Chicken Pitas
1/2 c. mayo (Darlin', I was trying to keep that from you...did you know I snuck mayo in there?!)
1 TBSP. honey
1 tsp. curry powder
2 c. cubed cooked chicken
1 cup halved green grapes (we didn't have any)
1/2 c. chopped pecans
4 green onions, chopped (we didn't have any...it tasted good anyway)
4 pita breads, halved
8 lettuce leaves
combine first 3 ingr. Stir in chicken, grapes, nuts, onion. Line pitas with lettuce; spoon 1/2 c. chicken mixture into each.
(this recipe is thanks to Marilou Robinson of Portland, Oregon...I saw it in my Quick Cooking magazine)
So take those few extra minutes you saved in the kitchen to swim (crawl) a few laps around the kiddie pool :)
After my post yesterday, I got a few comments directing me to other posts about the same subject! Very interesting!!!!
See Emily's post here.
Another post here.
(I am not alone in my craziness :) What was funny is that in the 85 comments that Emily got, half of the people could totally relate, and half had no idea where she was coming from) just another evidence of God's genius and how balanced the human race is. If we were all alike, how awful that would be!
