Recipe: Bang Bang Chicken

I forgot to post this!!! Bang Bang Chicken, now keep in mind I've put two recipes together for this and it was YUMMY YUMMY! This is a spinoff of Bang Bang shrimp from Bonefish, but my husband is allergic to shellfish, so I wanted him to try this.

Bang Bang Chicken

Ingredients:
  1. 10 Thawed Chicken Tenders
  2. 1/2 Cup of mayonnaise
  3. 1/4 Cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  4. 3-5 drops, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (Do not compromise this. KEY ingredient. It's the bottle w/ the rooster)
  5. Panko bread crumbs (yes they carry these at Walmart)
  6. 2 eggs, whisked
  7. Vegetable Oil

Heat oil until hot, dip tenders into egg then bread the chicken in Panko bread crumbs, fry until brown/crispy. Continue through all chicken, drain on a paper towel.

Mix the mayo, Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, and Hot Chili Sauce, this should make a peach/redish mixture, and you simply coat the chicken in this. Taste test your sauce so that you can make it as hot or as sweet as you want.

I served this with Garlic Mashed potatoes and asparagus with Mary B's biscuits, hope you enjoy!
I wish I had a pic, sorry!

So what's been going on ay? I've been doing some fun stuff!! haha, ALWAYS.

Last weekend, my good friend Leslee Hendrix married her love, Jordan Williams. She is now Mrs. Leslee Williams! I was so excited to be in her wedding, her colors were Garnet and Gold, and turned out so beautiful. My mom did my hair and did such a great job. They went on their honeymoon to Sandals in Jamaica, which just reminded me of Brandon and my honeymoon in Cancun, I loved it so much. So, CONGRATS to The Williams!


Lets see, I started sitting for one of the Doctor at work's kids. He has two kids, a boy and a girl and they are so cute!!! I will be doing that once a week, and I'm really excited about it! I'm excited about the Panorama at Olive on December 10 and 12. My coworkers are threatening to heckle me while I'm singing with the choir. Dear Lord please don't let this happen. lol. We are singing with two other churches which I think will be really great. You should come if you can!

I finished reading a book today, The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It was the next book on the list for the book club I'm in at work. We only meet once a month, but you'd be surprised at how fast that comes around! http://www.kathrynstockett.com/ you should definitely read it. It was a great book.

I'm of course stoked that Auburn is undefeated, and all we have left is the Iron Bowl! I hope all this nonsense about Cam Newton is just that, and that nothing else comes out. I hate that for Auburn and all the fans that are so excited for the wins. WAR EAGLE.Brandon went with the high school boys from the youth group and a bunch of manly men camping. Brandon doesn't get to do this much as he's married to a scardie cat. I was happy that he got to go. Since all the men were out, some of us wives went out to eat and to a movie. We went to Tuscan Oven and to see Morning Glory. Tuscan Oven was delicious!! All 4 of us got Sweet Tea, Salad, and all liked pepperoni pizza, YUMMY YUMMY! Morning Glory was "ok". I really wish they wouldn't have premarital sex in movies, it sends such a bad message. I understand if its Rated R, blah blah. I just i dunno hate it.

Speaking of Yummy Yummy, did you know there is a facebook app called Fat Booth and takes your picture and adds a few pounds. Here is one my friend at work did:I know this is so mean, but omgsh, if we can't laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at? A patient called today and I asked him how he was he said, "I can't look this good and feel bad!" Haha what a great attitude, lol.

We are trying to train Tux and Tenley better, they are very bad kids, I mean dogs. We are way to lenient. And while I'm on this tangent, WE ARE NOT HAVING KIDS YET. lol, there I said it.

I will try to update soon ok Emily??

See ya!

Football, Fishing, Fun!

Last Friday night, we of course went to the Pace game. It was Pace vs Tate! Unfortunately, my mom was overcome with kidney stones last week, and she and my dad didn't make it to the game. (She is doing better now) We had some guests sit with us who were visiting with some of our reserved section neighbors. This little boy was so funny! He would lick his hand and then ask me to give him a high five, I told him no! We started talking about our kids, Tux and Tenley, naturally! And, the little boy, Parker I think his name was, said that he had a yorki-poo but that she was getting a haircut. Later, his dad put his hand on his ears and said to us, that his wife had GIVEN THE DOG AWAY 3 months AGO, and told Parker that she was getting a haircut. omgsh.

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and went deep sea fishing with my boss and his son, and our friends Sarah and Ted. Ted of course had to stop by Dunkin' Donuts. Where he always gets his blueberry coffee and blueberry everything else. So, for those of you that dont know, I cannot read and ride and have never been deep sea fishing until this. I usually get motion sickness on a roller coaster... you see where this is going? I was fine riding out, but once we started fishing and all the rockin and rollin' You guessed it... I "TU'ed" as Britt and Leslee would say... haha (friends of mine with phobias to throwing up) I wish I would have done it earlier because it made me feel alot better. We caught ALOT of snapper, but it wasn't snapper season, so we threw them back :( We caught some trigger fish, amberjack, a sucker fish, and many more! Here is me with a big snapper! Good times...
Sunday, we went to Sunday School, I I sang in the Choir, oh BTW, I joined the choir at Olive. :) We went to church and I can't seem to remember what else we did.......

This week we've been working, and catching up on TV shows. I got my hair did today and picked up my bridesmaid's dress for Leslee's wedding!!!!

I'm excited to watch Grey's tonite, and tomorrow starts the weekend for the High School retreat. My momma has been kind enough to watch our kiddos for us. I will take some pictures of that this weekend and post them!

See ya later,
Krista (&Brandon)

Back to school...new shows!

So Brandon started school a few weeks ago. Tuesday and Thursday nights and Saturday mornings I'm home with the pups. Therefore, I should be able to read my Bible more, and to post on my blog more right? haha. I've decided I'm going to do my laundry on these nights so that weekends are free for fun things! I want to start doing more crafts and things. I will update you guys on these things as I do them.

I'm so excited that college football has started back! War Eagle! Auburn looks pretty good this year, they scared me last week on that Thursday night game... whew, we pulled it out and beat Miss State. I'm excited to see what else is in store. Of course, back to school also means Pace Patriot Football! My parents still sit in the same seats at Pace, so Brandon and I get to capitalize on their tickets!! woot! My dad did say that we need to save our money and get our own. I figure 6 years of mooching has to end sometime. There is not much like a Friday night in Patriot stadium talking with friends and family and watching high school football. We love seeing our sweet "Connection Group" kids at the games. That's hip lingo for Sunday School in case you didn't know.

Speaking of Pace, Brandon was a sub today!!! I think he really enjoyed it and is exciting to get some more sub jobs. I really liked that he got to see the high school I went to. He is subing tomorrow as well for the lovely Mrs. Cassevah. :)

Next week I'm looking forward to some new TV Shows. I'm really into Glee, excited to see Raising Hope, and Grey's of course. Brandon and I started watching Survivor last year, so we rented Season One, its' been great. The Nicaragua Survivor started this week, its on TiVo right, but eventually we will watch it! Speaking of TV, I heard Gilmore Girls might be made into a movie, lets all say a prayer about that tonite. ;)

Until next time,
KRISTA (&Brandon, Tux and Tenley)

Man, I gotta get better at this blog thing!

Ola Friends. WOW. So much going on. Let's update, like before glee starts.

What you missed, read fast.

Brandon got a new job as a orthopaedic sales rep, everything was going great, then his boss turned out to be a super crazy person, they told brandon it wasn't working out, gave him a 60 day notice, yest, 60 days. Then a week later they said brandon was doing great, and that it was their management issues! forget about that 60 day thing, even though brandon didn't change a thing. then a few weeks later everything came back crazy again, and brandon decided that doing unethical things, being disrespected constantly, and lied to, wasn't exactly the job he was offered.

therefore, brandon is looking for a new job! :) He has currently signed up to be a substitute in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties, while starting an 11 month program at, Pensacola State College (PJC for your old schoolers), to get his professional teaching certificate. As I've told him a million times, he would be a great teacher and coach!

This is our new nephew! Brandon's sister, Angela and her husband, Derrick had a little boy, Zac!

Tenley this may be TMI, but Tenley had her time in the "heat". OMGSH We were not aware of the situation here, she had to wear a diaper for over a week. She has no tail, therefore, the diaper just slid off her fat booty. So, we were constantly having to pull up the diaper or we would find Tux helping her get it off. ay yi yi. Needless to say, she is getting "Fixed" asap.

This is where Tenley decided to destroy her pillow in her kennel.


Tux is enjoying being a big brother/boyfriend to Tenley. ;)

I (Krista) have still been working at The Andrews Institute as a Surgical Coordinator, learning lots! I recently joined the Choir at Olive, man Leo is intense! You have to go to practice 4 times before you can sing on Sunday! This is a long was from GtR at Immanuel. haha.

I'm excited for college football to start! Can't wait to cheer on my Auburn Tigers, and hope that they beat those Rebels when the time comes. We miss all our friends that moved away! Most recently, Clif and Emily Rateike. Clif is in the Marines, and they just moved to North Carolina. After that they will be going to California love. It's so sad, it seems like everything we get closed with a couple they have to move! :( Boo.

I've recently taken on the challenge to read my Bible in a year, I am so excited. God has been showing me so many things through Genesis. I have decided I want to do this every year. It helps me to recollect things when the time comes. I've also started reading Radical, by David Platt, so awesome I totally recommend!

So I said a little more than the intro to Glee. That's all for now, I'll leave you with a video of our fam!

Friends in town means fun!

Our friends, Ben and Courtney McHone came to see us all the way from Asheville, North Carolina!! Brandon knows Ben from middle school. We were so happy they could come and stay in our guest bedroom we decorated!

When the weather was good we went to the Beach, which was hit and miss because of the rain and the oil...We went to Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach. I am really starting to like Navarre. Here are some pics!



We had to take them to local favorite restaurants to eat and places to go. This was our first time "hosting" full on guests! So give me a break if you think that I should have showed them other things. lol.

One day, Brandon had to go into work :( So we were on our own until about 1:00, so I took Ben and Courtney for lunch to Bass's (Kwik Burger) in Milton. YUMMY! My parents ended up buying our lunch so it worked out perfectly. lol. jk.

We ate at La Hacienda!! Of course, I mean Brandon did have his "Bachelor Party" there. What can I say, he loves the salsa and Chilaquiles! We didn't get pictures there :(

We ate in a couple nights. We went to Music in the Park, now called, Evenings in Old Seville Square, and ate at Tuscan Oven, of course. Gotta get the Mozzarella appetizer.





The last night they were here we decided to go to McGuire's. I had the Mahi which was delicous. I never know what to eat there. I got a kick out of Ben and Courtney freaking out over the menu with all the different burgers etc. We sat in the room with the infamous Moose. We did NOT kiss it. There was some drama with some military guys, but we left before it got to heated, but the manager was called. Here are some pics!


I will update more soon with some Golf and Tux and Tenley pics!
