Key limes & awards?!


Well, dinner tonight was a piecemeal process, as I finally got to go see Mr. Seksi play some bas-ketttt-ballllll!

Before we left I roasted up these cutie patooties that Fanatic Mom gave me 🙂

Just some EVOO, oregano, S&P and into a 400F oven for 30 minutes… 

And all ready for us just to reheat when we got back!

I also wanted to give this newbie I purchased a try…

Key Lime seasoning… ummm sign me up?! 😛

So I sprinkled a hefty amount on some lean chicken breasts, threw them in a ziploc with a lil’ EVOO to marinate and they were ready to cook when we got home too!

A quick trip to the skillet with some cooking spray….

Oh yes, I think I have mastered stove top chicken hahaha.  The trick?  High temp to sear the outsides for a minute or two, then lower to medium-low and cover to finish.  Hello juices, come to mama!  (weirdo alert #101 haha :P)

I decided to make up a quick veggie side dish on a whim too using these peeps

Into the microwave went the bag of frozen broc, can of soup mixed with 1/4 cup plain almond milk

So freaking easy.

And before we knew it, dinner was served!  At 8:15 sharp 😉

But alas, it was only 1/2 a chicken for this girl… I’m telling you, I just don’t need all that meat anymore? (TWSS? haha yes, mature Steph :P) 

However, the spice blend was deelish!  I can’t wait to see what else I can use it on, we were both huge fans!

Now onwards to some Coconut Milk Ice Cream, go fig…

Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Chocolate

And before I go…

Can I tell you that I am totally feeling the love today!

  1. rules are meant to be broken — congrats on the award, chica!

  2. Hahahahaha. Girl. This is too easy. You snow does NOT equal a vaycay. Or else you would have moved up here already!!

    I really hope tequila is your true fav drink! High quality tequila, on the rocks, muddled with 4 orange slices. Ohhh em geeeeee delish.

  3. Love this… tough though! We think the truth is that either you were in a sorority or you want a large family! Gheez, you think by us being friends I would really know the answer! HAHA. xoxo

  4. Key lime seasoning? HOLY COW. I need to find this immediately!! 🙂

  5. Congrats on the award. I think number 3 is correct?!?

  6. Your dinner look so good girl! Key Lime seasoning.. YUM!!! And I think that perfecting chicken is HARD! It’s so easy to make chicken dry and bland.

    Congrats on the award! You deserve it!

  7. Um…Key Lime?!! I would eat that straight up, me thinks. 🙂 I LOVE anything Key Lime. I do have the WM coupon to use, too….

    Congrats on the award!! I’m going to guess the snow thing?! Either that or tequila. I do love my Jose now and then but the tummy can’t handle it like my 21 year old tummy. 😉

  8. Key lime seasoning? Yummy! I’m gonna go with #3…smart cookie!

  9. It’s interesting how your taste for meat has gone away…

    These are always so hard! Is #3 the truth?

  10. That seasoning sounds great! I bet it would be good on tofu!

    I’m going to go with #3?
