Summer Grilling

Good Afternoon!

Several days ago I was preparing for a lunch meeting and wanted to wow my guest with my grilling skills.  I found this recipe from my Weber Grilling Book.  It was so simple and delicious!

(pictures are mine..recipe not)

Cilantro Pesto Chicken Tenders

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
(or just get them already chopped in a bag)

Recipe calls for 2 medium garlic cloves.. I added 3 (love garlic)

1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves with tender stems

1/2 cup loosely packed fresh Italian parsley leaves and tender stems
(add salt and pepper)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Blend all in food processor.

Place 2lbs of chicken breast tenders (I use organic) in a plastic bag with the pesto.

Let marinade in fridge for 2hr minimum.

Grill over Direct high heat until meat is firm and juices run

Here is the finished product!  I made a baked potato with some side salad.  Healthy and easy. can even sprinkle with a little lime juice.

Hoping you're enjoying the summer so far : )

Some Nostalgia

Good afternoon!

I love the weekends for many reasons but one is.. Garage Sales!

I am helping a friend with their home and while we were out I came upon this that brought up so many memories of growing up.

I remember walking around with the phone and ahem..walking too far and getting yanked.  I remember my parents trying to listen in on my conversations. Oh, the memories.

Being at the sale and seeing this relic I knew I had to have it.  Now every time I walk by it brings a smile to my face.

Check out some garage sales this weekend it just might bring back good memories.

Dining Room Reveal

Good Afternoon!
I am so happy that I have finished giving our dining room a fresh update.
You can see what it looked like before here
 Changed the placement of the mirror and the space feels so much bigger.  Paint colors add to the space being able to breathe.
 The art is actually vintage tv trays.  I love the pattern and how it adds life (I don't have a green thumb at all)
These chairs I got for $10.  LOVE!  The fur is from Ikea.
 A Mexican blanket on table makes it feel inviting like you're on a picnic.
Changed curtains to simple and white.  
And our view to outside.

Little changes can make a big difference.  

What updates are you doing?  What changes have you done in your home to welcome in the summer season?
