Sweet Summer Time

A teacher's favorite saying. We have visited High Bridge State Park (Farmville, Virginia) in adventure #1.  Go there if you can! It's beautiful!! My grandfather actually painted the tresses for this once railroad. I bought an Apple Watch too :)  More adventures to come.....

Bacon BBQ Chicken Tenders

Adapted from Emily Bites
3 Freestyle Points per tender


Ingredients
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders (8 count)
8 slices center cut bacon
4 tablespoons BBQ sauce (used Wegman's brand)
4 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Wrap each chicken tender in a piece of bacon.  Use a brush to brush all sides of the chicken tender and bacon.  Place on baking sheet. (I sprayed sheet with PAM before placing chicken on sheet).

Combine the chili powder and brown sugar in a small dish.  Stir until mixed.  Sprinkle the mixture onto the chicken tenders.  Bake for 30 minutes and remove from oven.

Turn on your broiler and return the to oven for two minutes, or until bacon is crispy.

The birthday I'd like to forget....

My birthday was spent with a very sick little boy, that eventually ended up in the emergency room at West Creek.  Smooches to the staff, they were amazing.  We are back to normalcy for now, including a Boy Scout trip to Luray.
