Recently I participated in an Invitational exhibit at the Naples Museum of Art. The show was named Florida Contemporary. They sent me a CD of all the art in the show, and I enjoyed seeing it. I had shipped the painting to the museum so I didn't see the show. I think it was very nice of the director to send me a packet yesterday with all of the newspaper articles about the show and the brochure along with the CD of art.

Tip of the Day

An easy way to save is to ask for water at drive through restaurants and eat in restaurants. I put a dollar in my savings everytime I drink water when I eat out.  

Today's Recipe

 From my lovely daughter and caterer Jackie Tucker

  Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders


(inspired from Pioneer Woman's Ranch Style Chicken)

1 package of chicken tenders
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup country grainy mustard
juice of half a lemon
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
sprinkle of crushed red pepper
canola oil

In a bowl mix together the honey, mustard, lemon juice, paprika, garlic powder, and red pepper.  Spread the mixture over the chicken tenders and sit in the refrigerator for 10-20 minutes.  (Use this time to work on your dinner sides)

In a skillet heat up some canola oil (1-2 tablespoons) until everything is really hot.  Add the chicken tenders and cook 1-2 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through and brown on the outside.
