A sweet snack

 I'm taking my boys to the park before their swim lessons. This sweet little snack should hold them over.
Peanut butter and jelly hearts, goldfish, a few sweet marshmallows in the top tier and apple slices in the bottom tier. 
These picks are from Dollar Tree! I just picked them up a couple weeks ago. The heart cups are from Hobby Lobby a couple years ago.
I'm joining Muffin Tin Monday. I love using muffin cups to separate food.

Chicken Gyros

 I saw this on Pinterest, and decided it looked good enough to try. It was. 
I marinated my chicken a little different.
In a large plastic container, I added
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime (that's what I had)
Olive oil (about 1/4 cup)
salt and pepper
1 T dried oregano (maybe a little more, it's what gives it the beautiful Greek grilled chicken aroma)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 T dried parsley
I stored it in the refrigerator for 5 hours, let it sit for about 20 minutes before I started grilling.
Get your grill pan really hot, turn down to medium and grill chicken til done. Let sit at least 5 minutes before slicing.
My layered hummus dip is here and the tzatziki sauce is sour cream, cucumber, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice and dill.
Please forgive me for not posting a lot right now...I'm potty training Andrew, so I'm quite occupied! Once he conquers this, we'll be back to regular postings. This recipe tonight...pure stress reliever. 
I'm joining these blogs!
