Fantastic Recipe

Here's a recipe that's delicious! Get ready, tastebuds.

Grilled Lime Chicken
Prep: 15 min. + marinating
Grill: 10 min.

1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
6 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley OR 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
3 Tbsp. grated lime peel
1-1/2 tsp. minced garlic
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. dried thyme
3/4 tsp. marjoram
3/4 tsp. pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

In a small bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag OR tupperware container with lid. Seal and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to one hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, covered over medium heat for 5-8 minutes per side. Baste occasionally with remaining marinade.

**to get the most lime juice, microwave limes for 30 seconds before slicing in half and squeezing. A juicer (electric or hand) is helpful but not necessary.

Springy Wingys

Spring is finally here! With all the wonderful weather lately we've had lots of trips to the park behind Grammy and Pops' house. Swinging is one of Reagan's favorite things to do. She'll ask if she can go on the, "WEE!" Then she'll ask for the "sly?" (slide). There's lots of fun to be had these days. And Gideon is really growing up, too! This morning he reached out and grabbed the toy cow that's attached to his jungle gym mat. Definitely a first and worthy of posting. Thanks, Lord, for a wonderful family and two kids who are growing up too fast.
