Fall-To Layout #234: I got some new chipboard pieces from Michaels yesterday from the Studio18 brand ($1.50 for 20 pieces + 30% off coupon), and I was inspired to use one of the pieces in this card today. I took a card base that I was going to use for one of the office cards and repurposed it for this card. The kraft embossed piece coordinated well with the frame. I filled in the space around the sentiment with some yellow liquid pearl to match the patterned paper that I used.

Stamp: Hero Arts- You and Me

Recipe #4 of 2013: After spin class today, I went grocery shopping and bought some chicken and mushrooms that were on sale. I had initial thoughts of making chicken marsala, I decided to branch out and make some lemon chicken with a mushroom sauce. I was inspired by this recipe, but I made some modifications. I used a skillet instead of baking. I added some garlic to the mushroom sauce. I marinated the chicken with lemon and olive oil for about 1.5 hours before cooking. It was super easy and quick and yummy!
