I saw this photo on pinterest and thought it was completely adorable! Getting blank silver cans like these would be easy at a craft store or Walmart! Along with colored paper that themes your wedding or you could spray paint them for a more “country” look. This would be so cute for a backyard wedding or a park wedding! Get colored forks,knifes etc that match your wedding colors to put inside with a colored soda! Super cute and easy to make! For the names if you want that to be the favors for the guest just make these little cards on the computer – like Microsoft word and print them out and glue em’ on!

Pretzel toasted coconut chicken!?

ImageImageImage

Huh? Yeah, that is right a chicken pretzel. I totally just came up with this is my head when I was thinking about how bad I wanted some pretzels. Imagine if you used mashed up pretzels as a bread crumb instead regular bread crumbs? It would be like a pretzel chicken. And if you cut up the chicken into little bite size pieces, you could call is “Pop pretzel chicken” Anyways, I know it sounds crazy. I am sure someone has tried this before but I am going to try it out and if you do let me know what you think!

So what you would need to do is take a big bag of pretzels and mash them up but still leave a few good chunks! (Don’t make it dusty, you still want the crunch) And then for a little sweet to the chicken and a layer of shredded sweet coconut. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering! I really think this would be amazing! It would be the perfect sweet/salty chicken mix but little bite size snacks!

THEN for the dip you can make a tzatziki sauce with cucumber and dill!  Am I the only one that thinks this sounds amazing? I can’t wait to try this!
