Wow, doesn't this look beautiful?! I can't take the credit, I only helped Carol finish it up on Monday night after I got home from work. It just turned out so good and it was quick so I thought I'd share the recipe!
Lemon-Roasted Chicken with Dilled Orzo
1 chicken (we used a package of thighs)
6 garlic cloves, smashed
2 lemons, quartered
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 Tbl. plus 1 tsp. olive oil
coarse salt & ground pepper
1 cup orzo (found in pasta aisle)
1/2 tsp. dried dill
-Preheat oven to 450. Set a large saucepan of water to boil.
-On a lagre rimmed bakin sheet, toss together chicken, garlic, lemons, oregano and 1 tsp oil; season with salt and pepper. Roast chicken, skin side up until golden and cooked through, 25-30 minutes.
-Meanwhile, generously salt boiling water. Add orzo, and cook until al dente; drain well, and return to saucepan. Add dill and 1 Tbl oil; season with salt and pepper and mix gently to combine.
-When orzo is ready place in serving dish. Set roasted chicken on top and drizzle with pan juices.
This recipe is courtesy of Martha Stewart Everyday Food and I totally recomend it! As you can see the presentation is beautiful so it will impress - lol!
Also, I went coupon shopping with Nichole last night and got a great deal. So good in fact that I had to post the pic. I got all this at Target for only $1.98. Woo Hoo :)

It had been so chilly lately and warmed up nicely for this BBQ. Now, of course, it has gotten windy again and is going to be a much cooler week. I'm staying positive though because at least it's not 100 already!
Once again it was Scrap Nigh on Sat. I couldn't help myself and used all 3 of the new Basic Grey lines that I've been coveting. Here's the spoils of all my labor...
I might post each inside pic.. what do you think? This Archaic line is adorable.
Cupcake line - what else can I say... soooo cute! Also, it might be a record - these are pics of Riley's real b-day outing from last year... "gasp" scrapped before this years b-day!
Finally, I think this one is Sultry. This page finished off my b-day pages from last week. You really can find me sporting this Ace of Cakes apron everytime I'm in the kitchen.

I painted it black and covered the back with some great scrapbook paper.
This is it's new purpose, to hold my mini books and albums that I make.

I also was able to get some projects completed.
A dinosaur book that I put together as a kit for the scrapbook store.
Another kit for the scrapbook store, super cool puzzle pieces!
And finally, some very cool glittery letters I picked up this weekend...
