Happy Easter!!!

We had a great Easter this year. Logan is at a fun age where he loved picking up everything around the yard. My aunt and uncle have a huge yard so we have a giant Easter egg hunt there every year with all the cousins. It’s a great tradition. This year we also roasted peeps as part of our get-together. If you haven’t tried doing this you need to. So Yummy!

Best Recipe Ever from my neighborhood recipe exchange

We do this recipe exchange in our new neighborhood! It is so much fun! Anyway, the first week we did it I got the best recipe; I make it all the time. I wanted to share with you guys... You should try it. It is super easy to put together and your whole family will love it. I wish I could take credit for it, but it is from a cute girl from my neighborhood. Enjoy!

Sweet Chicken Fingers

3lb Chicken Tenders
1 cup flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 tsp garlic salt
3 beaten eggs
2 tbsp oil

2 ¼ cup sugar
¾ cup water
¾ cup ketchup
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 ½ tsp salt

Dip chicken in eggs. Combine flour, cornstarch, and garlic salt in a shallow bowl. Coat chicken and fry in oil. Add additional oil if necessary. Place chicken on a large baking sheet lined with foil (use heavy duty foil if you have it). Simmer remaining ingredients in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Spoon sauce over chicken. Reserve leftover sauce to serve over rice. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes turning halfway through. Serve with rice.
