I found it here. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift for the girls (this is Ladybug's) but I ran out of time and they got more than needed anyways. So Friday I finally got around to making one (and cut out the pieces for Butterbean's). I'm really proud of the way the turned out! See for yourself:
Both girls love it! and it shouldn't take long for the other one to come together, pictures as soon as I can get them to stop jumping on it long enough for a non-blurry picture.

French Onion Chicken
1 lb chicken tenders
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 cup mayo (Duke's please, if you don't have Duke's in your area I guess Hellman's is tolerable)
1 tbsp water
2 cups French's Fried Onions
Preheat oven to 400. Place onion in a zip top bag and crush, set aside. Combine mustard, mayo and water in bowl. Dip chicken into mustard mixture then toss in onions to coat. Place on baking sheet and cook 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately.
I am warning you now - this will be a frequent request at your house!

- View today
- words (didn't get that one yet)
- A Stranger
- 10 am
Most of my shots were not as focused as I would like. I guess that's why it's called practice. This one I thought turned out best for the theme but it's still not as focused as I wanted.It has been interesting going through this and thinking that I would have two willing subjects, it turns out that Butterbean runs from the camera and Ladybug tries to stick her eye in the lens! She has shown an interest in taking pictures so I've been trying to help her with that while still protecting the camera!
I am hoping that maybe I can get some editing software (Lightroom) to help with the finished pictures, right now everything is straight out of the camera.

The challenge itself is linked into instagram (which I am not a part of) but that doesn't mean that I can't follow along. I missed January but am hoping to keep up with this for the rest of the year. I won't be posting everyday but I will post the favorite/best from the week every Thursday.
I think it will be an interesting creative outlet and should produce some good pictures for scrapbooking/photo albums!
