We got so much done today--Church, errands, pictures, and finally....Engagement Chicken!
In Bentonville, Ches found a really cool bridge he wanted me to see-he said it was perfect for pictures (he knows me well), so we ran home for the camera, some of us changed clothes, then we drove north. (We also fit in Build-a-Bear for Mary Claire's $5 birthday certificate and Barnes & Noble for her to use some birthday money!) We had so much fun. The bridge he told me about? Better than he said-he was totally right. Awesome!
|The first two are just for perspective so you can see the gorgeous bridge! : ) Check out that moss growing on the bottom!|
|And see the cool little "guard shacks" on the outsides? Very Cool. : )|
|Sitting on the side, over the running water way down below.|
|..checking out that water!|
|against a post on the side of the covered bridge|
|take 2 : )|
|take 3! : )|
|Isn't the stone beautiful? Clay got this one right before we left : )|
And now? Dinner is cooking! I finally am making Engagement Chicken. I stopped and got one more chicken, since I might as well make two at once! (something about two birds are better than one..or is it **ll two birds with one stone? Yep, can't do that. But I'll cook them!)
Aren't they funny sitting in the colander together? : ) Reminds me of two kids in the bathtub together a few years after they should be bathing alone. ; ) Too big for one tub!
|They only got funnier. : )|
|The ingredients (plus chicken, salt, and pepper)|
|They start on their chests-they just looked like they were on their knees praying, so I had to take a picture. I guess there's still hope I won't cook them? (and where two or more are gathered...)|
|After I stuck the lemons in, their legs went wild. I had to tie the legs together to keep the lemons in, but I couldn't find kitchen string or jute string (of which I have tons!) so...I had to use ribbon. ; )|
In the meantime, I peeled seven bananas to make the Secretly Good for You Banana Soft Serve for dessert. You freeze them, then when ready, break them into chunks, blend or food process them, then sprinkle with cocoa or cinnamon-yum!
|They are pretty : )|
Stick to the pretty rotisserie chickens premade (same price), and some yummy Breyer's ice cream. That's Yum.
