Pretzel Crusted Chicken

So our local grocery store carries these mini kid shopping carts. Oh.Boy.



When I first noticed them I excitingly told my three year old, "Oh my gosh Boo!! Looooooookkk!" Her eyes popped open as she did this funky jump and ran over to the carts, excited to start shoppin' like her mama.

Little did I know...



A three year old can't push a shopping cart.

My heels have bruses.

Cereal boxes fall over easily when ran into.

Don't walk by isle with marshmallows. Ever.

Apparently we need multiple bags of pretzels. Multiple.



Want to know what's worse?

The fact that I loaded those groceries so fast on the conveyer belt that I didn't notice said multiple bags of marshmallows OR pretzels.

Hence, Pretzel Crusted Chicken.
