Anyone sick of barns yet?? Good, me neither. ;) These are just a few pics I snapped while out and about.
I found a crate for my porch display!
LOVE Cindy Woolf and guess what?? She's local!! Skip to 1:21 if you want to miss the interview part and go straight to music. :)
Album here. The studio version of Sidewalk Stars is excellent! My favorite tracks are Sidewalk Stars,Blurry, and I told them all about you.

I've made this recipe many times, but I always fry the chicken. Tonight was my first time baking it. I have to say, I like baked even better! The chicken was more tender and didn't feel as heavy. Make sure to use Panko bread crumbs. They make the chicken super crunchy so you don't miss the frying! Sorry this pic doesn't have sauce. Everybody was scarfing so fast, I didn't get a picture of the sauce. :)
Sweet and Sour Chicken
4 chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. vinegar
1/4 c. ketchup
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp accent
1/2 c. crushed pineapple
Take 4 skinless, boneless, thawed chicken breasts cut into strips or bite sized pieces. Coat in egg and panko bread crumbs. Place coated chicken on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cook on 375 for 45 min.
Add sauce ingredients in pot and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Keep stirring.
I made basmati rice and just poured a little sauce on the chicken. That way much less sauce is consumed. Yum!

|I couldn't be happier about all of the beautiful barns in Missouri!! Most of my pics are taken with my phone, while I am driving around. I really should keep my big camera in the car with me.|
The Round Barn has been restored for use as a reception center.
|Pretty little hillside barn.|

|With both of my girls in school, I was able to have some alone shopping time!!! My youngest is only in preschool, so it was only for a few hours, but it was still wonderful! I started off at Funtiques. It certainly lived up to it's name. I had a blast and the staff is adorable.|
|How sweet is this aqua thermos and mug set?? I had to have it.|
|I would love to have this table and chair set in the front window. The entire shop is adorable. It made me happy just being there.|
|I couldn't resist the sweet mama and baby deer set. I think they look cute on top of my pink radio.|
|LOVE this tv set!! After visiting Funtique's I headed down to The Feathered Nest in Ozark.|
This burlap wreath was calling my name. I think it's fab for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I was thinking for Christmas, I may change the bow to red gingham and add a little pine branch. I will have to post a pic once I get it on the front door.
This vintage bed spring candle holder will be hung on my back porch. I would like to get a few more of them.
Last but not least a Lemon Drop Cookie candle from Sugar Pie Farm House's booth. I am not kidding, the best smelling thing EVER. I know what my kid's teachers will be getting as gifts. :)
Speaking of back to school, this song has been perpetually in my head since the first day. I love it, it makes me a little teary.
