This weekend Jesse and I went to the Washington state fair. It was very different then the Arizona state fair, it was huge, had so many cool shows, and I could have just stared at the animals all day! When we first got to the state fair we made sure to grab a map because, seriously, this place is huge. Our first stop was the fair museum that contained all the old history of the fair, very educating. Then we checked out about 390472039 different animals…ok maybe not that much, but we could have made a day of just looking at all the animals. We saw the hugest cows I have ever seen in my entire life; seriously they were all lying down because they were probably too fat to stand up on their own. We saw, all kinds of wild animals like zebra and a half donkey half zebra, tons of exotic birds, kangaroos, camels, mountain goats, turkeys, sheep, horses, dogs, cats and my personal favorite the piglets! We played some carnival games and won Prudy some new chew toys, we saw a hypnotist show and laughed our booties off and for the first time we experienced mutton races. Mutton races you might ask?! I hope on day my child will enter in a mutton race because they are hilarious. It’s these 4-7 year old little children that try to hold on for as far and long as they can to a sheep. The one who rides the sheep the longest will win a prize. These little kids were troopers! They had the best attitudes and you could tell they were so proud of themselves! 🙂 We ended the day by eating a very fair type food called, fried Twinkies. Let me tell you, these were actually really tasty! Jesse and I split one for fear that we wouldn’t like it, but by the end of the Twinkie I wished I still had more to eat ha! Saturday was a blast and if you are ever in the Washington area this time of year, I would highly recommend heading the state fair.
For dinner I made Ritz chicken. I bought a whole bunch of corn on the cob at the grocery store recently because they were a killer deal, so I cooked them all up, cut off the kernels and froze them all to use in dinners. I saved two corns on the cobs to eat with dinner and they were a mighty delicious side to this meal. Try it out and let me know what you think!
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 2 C crushed up Ritz crackers (I used the roasted vegetable kind)
- 1 C Milk
- 1/2 C Shredded Cheese
- 1 Can condensed cream of chicken soup
- ¼ C plain Greek yogurt
- 1 TBS butter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Crush up your ritz crackers in either a food processor or fill up a baggie and crush the crackers with a rolling pin.
- Place crushed crackers on a plate, mix in your shredded cheese, pour milk into a separate bowl and get out a baking dish to cook your chicken in.
- One at a time, dip your chicken breast in the milk, then smoother in the ritz crackers, sprinkle on salt, pepper and parsley and then place in your baking dish.
- 7. Once both chickens are done, place in the oven for about 40 mins, until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
- When chicken is done, place about half of your condensed cream of chicken soup in a small mixing bowl. Add in your Greek yogurt and butter and mix together. I add a bit of water to make it thinner and easily pourable.
- Spread your yogurt mixture on top of your chicken and sprinkle with some more parsley.
