A pretty nice Tuesday

Oh my yummy! So, I've been tossing around the idea of meal planning. It seems that we always get to 5 o'clock or so and have no idea what to cook for dinner. I think if I planned out a week's worth of meals with grocery lists then I would be able to stay on track and perhaps save a little money on groceries. Tonight I decided to try a chicken recipe that I found on Pinterest, and it turned out awesome!

The recipe is called Double Crunchy Honey Garlic Chicken and the original recipe can be found at Rock Recipes by clicking here.  The only thing I did differently from the recipe was to have the honey garlic sauce on the side to dip my chicken in instead of soaking the entire chicken breast in it. We were supposed to have mashed cauliflower with it but for some reason (Mark did it in the Ninja) it turned out with a weird consistency and tasted gross.

My girl mixing together all of the spices and flour. As you can see, it makes a lot so the recipe I was using said to save half of it for another time. 

Yeah, you are seeing this correctly... a whole lotta oil! We NEVER cook with this much oil, but the recipe called for it so there ya go.

Today we had a pretty great day. As I've mentioned before I'm babysitting at my home. I have a great bunch of kiddos, two I consider full time and a few drop-ins. Today it was Amelia, Kyler (almost 1 year), Carly (4 yrs) and myself. Thankfully the weather was nice and we got to take a stroll over to the park to swing, run around and kick ball.

 Awww, my love

 That smile is contagious

I love how her hair is such a mess in this photo!

Well, I'm off to bed... after I do some dishes. I can't believe how fast the days go by when I watch little ones for 12 hours of it.
