Drowning and Gluten Free Fried Chicken

Needless to say, this whole life – love – school – blog balance just doesn’t seem to be getting any easier. Just when I feel caught up (this usually happens on Fridays) another Monday comes around and I sink back under.

Honestly, it doesn’t help that in my late 20’s I have become a bit of a perfectionist. The young, lower 20s Marlow could have cared less about lots of things, and so long as she was having fun everything was fine. But the Marlow of today wants everything to be perfect and keeping this straight A streak in school that I started last year is becoming exhausting. Somebody give me a straw…cause I need to suck it up.

So today I’m sorry to tell you that unless you’re interested in grilled chicken bites with a side of pickled okra…my food is going to bore you. ALTHOUGH – it was a yummy lunch for being basic.

Instead I’m going to direct you to my blog friend (and hopefully real friend as soon as I’m back in the triangle) Jenni from Spoonful at a Time. A few weeks ago Jenni blogged about some AMAZING baked chicken nuggets that had my mouth watering. I mean check these out! And you’ll NEVER guess what they’re breaded in!

Check out her blog for the recipe – here!

And y’all know I LOVE “fried” chicken; I can’t wait to try this recipe soon.

Happy Thursday! Here’s hoping I get through my speech today in Public Speaking. For this week I’m informing my class about an awesome website called Kickstarter. It’s an easy way to fundraise for a project and I love going on and checking out other folks’ ideas.
