So many things are happening here that make me smile. First, Cheese Its + chicken. Second, my two crazy kids (See last photo!). Third, crunchy-cheesy-crispy-chicken.

Oh, and fourth, this is the first time I’ve used my brand new light reflectors. They are AWESOME. And I’m super excited to tell you more about them but I’m going to save that for a separate behind-the-scenes blog post, later. Like after I get a little more sleep. For now get your nose right up close here and look at those chunks of cheese crackers perfectly complimented by the one and only panko bread crumb. Sigh. Sometimes the simple things in life really are the best things.
