Mustache Shakers

I have had the hardest time deciding what to make Carson for Christmas. She is too young to appreciate doll stuff or play food like Harper does. She also is not old enough to play with anything small or breakable. Since she really doesn't have one, and she is working on gripping things (a skill she did not really develop in the orphanage), I decided a rattle/ shaker/ noise maker would be a great gift. I stuffed some toilet paper rolls with rice, closed off the ends with taped on paper, and duct taped it all up. They are pretty much indestructible, but if Carson does manage to break into them, the rice is too small for her to choke on. What else I will get her is still a mystery to me.

Here is a great recipe for breaded chicken tenders using Greek yogurt. I tell you, anything using Greek yogurt is delicious. The crispy breading gives them a delicious crunch, and cooking them the perfect amount of time assures they do not dry out. Enjoy!

Greek Yogurt Chicken Fingers
makes 10 chicken fingers
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ cup mozzarella cheese
¼ cup parmesan cheese
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
10 raw chicken tenders
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix the yogurt and garlic powder together. In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs and cheeses. Coat each chicken tender in the yogurt and then roll it around the bread crumb and cheese mixture. Bake for 25 minutes on a large baking stone, or until the chicken is no longer pink and registers to 165 degrees.
