Homemade Frozen Chicken Strips - Make your own homemade frozen chicken strips for a quick dinner with things in your own kitchen and and save MONEY!! - www.countrycleaver.com #howtotuesdayLet’s be real, there is never not a time that chicken strips don’t make you happy. And with busy schedules all around, they also make enormously happy when I can just pop them into the oven and just bake them into crispy divinity and devour them to my heart’s content instead of slaving away over the stove on a busy weeknight. We just simply don’t have time!

But one of the things I can portion out time for is a little meal prep to save me time for the busy week ahead. That where these crispy homemade baked chicken strips come in. It doesn’t take long to prepare them, and then you’re ready to bake when the weeknight hunger hits.¬

Easy No Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream - www.countrycleaver.com You don't need an ice cream maker to get that rich creamy ice cream at home!!

It’s August, I’m well aware – so please indulge me this moment of food induced psychosis while I dive right into pumpkin as a coping mechanism to calm myself because right now (if you haven’t heard) my entire state is on fire. Literally. Washington is practically burning to the ground, and right now, we are doing rain dances, and just praying to the gods that fall comes swiftly to drown out these flames. I’m doing my part to usher in fall, rain and sweatshirt weather by opening up my first can of pumpkin almost sacrilegiously early – but I feel it serves a greater purpose. So forgive me this pre-fall sin, and just revel in the pumpkiny goodness of it all.

And eat your feelings, or pumpkin obsessed hearts out with me! This is a safe space of no judgements, and pumpkin loving for all.¬

Use whole wheat wraps to make these even healthier! @Tessemae'sI’m just starting my Friday morning, having already put in 50 hours at my real job. Adulting is hard. Right now all I am doing is longing for the days of someone else packing my lunches, so I could skip off to school, have someone shuttle me around to fastpitch and volleyball practice, and back and forth to everything I had going on, and only having to do a few measly hours of homework every day then leave it all behind not letting it languish on my brain like a bad dream. Not to mention – have someone else make me dinner! THAT was living the dream! Now, if only I could master my I Dream of Jeannie blink and take me back there. If anyone has honed that particular skill, let me know your ways!

In the mean time, I’m going to living vicariously through these chicken fingers to get my fix of my school days gone by. How is it back to school time already?!

Never throw those bananas away again, make a giant loaf of this Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Banana Bread today! Tender, chocolatey, and better than your mama’s! There, I said it!

Dish Count :: 2 Mixing Bowls, 1 Loaf Pan

{Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Banana Bread} - www.countrycleaver.com  Extra chocolatey, super tender, and your mama will be asking YOU for the recipe!!

Someone in our house keeps asking me to buy bananas for his lunch, and only about half of them are getting eaten before they become black leathery slugs on our kitchen counter. And what I can tell you is that someone isn’t the dog. After they about five black dots on them, I tap out and won’t touch them for eating sake – I just let them languish on the counter biding my time until I can bust out some a serious loaf of banana bread. The only thing is…. this is my fourth loaf in as many weeks, it’s becoming a routine part of my diet – like last week when Ben had to work on a Saturday night and I had three slices and a glass of wine for dinner.

But let me tell you, this goes beautifully with an unoaked chardonnay.¬

There is never not a time that a burger doesn’t sound like a good idea. Wow, that’s a lot of double negatives, but stick with me. I have a point. If ever there is a time you’re craving something I am better it will come down to two things – pizza or a burger. Really I could always go for either, but given the choice, my first pick would always go the way of the burger. I’m a creature of habit when it comes to pizza – it’s always Hawaiian. It’s the sweet and salty combo.¬†Prosciutto Pear Pizza¬†anyone? I know.

But when it comes to burgers – it’s a blank slate and you can really go for gold. Plus, beef. And thank goodness I’m not the only one who revels in the joys of a good burger, because me and 30 of my other food blogging friends are celebrating the beef with a month of grilling. And WHAT is a celebration without some loot – like a giant giveaway with a grill of your very own? Read on dear friend
