Chicken, chicken, chicken..............I love chicken!!

I wouldn't have believed this if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, but I did see it! I baked 6 chicken breast at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. As soon as they came out I put them in the bowl of my kitchen aid with the paddle attachement (not the dough hook), turned it on to 4 speed for 20 seconds, instant shredded chicken!! I love, love, love it!! So here, is my new taquito recipe with shredded chicken. Yumola!!

Chicken Taquitos:
300 grams shredded chicken breast
8 T La Victoria green chili salsa
1/3 c. Greek yogurt
1 c. fat free cheddar cheese
1 t chili powder
1/2 t onion powder
1/2 t cumin
1/4 t garlic powder
6 La Tortilla Factory low fat/low carb tortillas

Mix first 4 ingrediants together and spices, divide evenly between the 6 tortillas, bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes until edges start to brown. These are off the hook good. 187 calories each, 15 carbs, 6 grams of fat, 29 grams of protien. And then a little dish of greek yogurt to dip in or salsa.

And progress: I've been eating clean and doing cardio on my off days, the weight is coming off!!

My guitar and new soul sister!!

I posted on September 25th about "There are no coincidences" and there truly aren't. We are all meant to come into each others orbits for a reason, a season, a lifetime........so.........the day before my very first Born in a Barn sale a mysteriously shaped box arrives for me, from Shelly in Texas.........of course I know what is in it but refuse to open it because I am so busy and I want to enjoy it, love it, welcome it to my world!! So I wait until Sunday, I am deliriously tired, exhausted, messed up......but I take lovely box into my room and open it...........just like the picture!! Yea!! And here she is, on my mantel in my bedroom!!

But that's not all!! My friend also sent me this fabulous bracelet!! That I love!
She wanted me to wear it for the show......thank goodness I didn't, the rabid crowd would have ripped it from my arm and ran! But I'm hoping she will send a bunch up for my next sale!!


I know I should be posting Born in a Barn info but I have to get all of the photos from my sister and then I can share my big fat successful 2 day sale!!

Born to be Brave!!

Lady Gaga sings a song called "Born this Way" and if you listen really closely at the very end she sings, "Born to be Brave", that song went through Soul Restoration 1, Soul Restoration 2, the long drive to Idaho for Brave Girls Camp with 30 + women I had never met before and now when I start doubting myself with the Born in a Barn concept.....I play it too! Then my sister did this wonderful poster to sell at Born in a Barn.....think I'm on the right road???

This print is available for sale, high quality suitable for framing, 24x24, $44 includes shipping. Contact Mindy @ mindywilsonphotography.com or e-mail her @ mindywilson97@msn.com Get your Brave on my friends!!

Born in a Barn......WHERE ARE YOU???

It has come to my attention that I have not  posted the exact location of the first Born in a Barn sale on my blog. So this is for Anonymous who asked where is this sale! I couldn't respond to you via e-mail so I hope this will do!!

Born in a Barn was created by Shelley Kinnison, Jill Chase and Mindy Wilson to support our serious addiction to repurposing, refurbishing and refreshing all kinds of junk. Luckily, we have found some others with similar issues. Even when your house is full these behaviors don’t go away, so we are having a sale and inviting the public to come and take it away! Friday, October 14th and Saturday, October 15th we will open the gates at ; there is plenty of parking in the field and Barn Boys to help cart your treasures away. Join us at 415 Highway 14 for our very first Born in a Barn Sale!!

Lot's of pumpkins from Jill Chase!!

The law of attraction is off the ricter scale in my little orbit right now! First, the guitar two weeks ago.....and it turns out she is also a big fan of Brave Girls, and was going to quit doing her beautiful guitars, and her name is Shelly (oh ya, I already said that part) and......ooops, off the train tracks. This post is about another connection that was AMAZING!! Last winter my friend and I did a makeover on another friends clothing store, she wanted more of an Anthropology look... so we drug in all kinds of stuff and I had been making angel wings ever since Brave Girls for all of my friends. So I thought, here's your chance to see if anyone will actually pay for your art. I made three big sets of wings......no one bought them....crap, everyone said they loved them, so maybe I over priced them? Oh well, alot of time and energy went into making them, I'm not going to pay people to have them. Then the store sold to a new owner and she is going for a totally different look so we need to go get our stuff. WoW, one pair of the wings sold....so I gather up the other two and bring them home. Then I have a baby shower for a friend and one of the guests asks if she can buy a set of wings..........WoW, a little more validation. So I gather my little artistic ego up off the floor and think I'll make some for the barn sale. One afternoon I'm sitting and folding to make wings and the phone rings, "Hi, this is Barbara from the Chamber of Commerce and I'm looking for an artist by the last name of Kinnison and just thought you might be able to help me?", I say, "My mother in-law does water color paintings, her name is Sharon, is that who you are looking for?", "No, this is a paper artist, she does things, with old books.", I actually laugh out loud.....there are quite a few people I consider artists, but I have never put myself in that category....."That's me!", "Great, there is a woman in town who is dying to find you and buy some of your wings, can I give her your number?", I say "Sure", still thinking this is so bizarre! Phone rings, "Shelley?", "Yes", some squealing and sounds of joy, "I can't believe I found you, I'm so excited, I need wings, don't think I'm a stalker, but I kinda of am, it was so hard to find you, I love your art...." , by now my head is so big I have to open double doors and go sideways to fit it outside.....but hey, you bet I'll meet you for coffee and let you adore me a little bit more! Next morning I get my butt up and out to meet for coffee and there is the sweetest soul I've met in a very long time and yes, she does need wings, because her name is Angela!!
