Honey and Lime Glazed Chicken


We are big chicken fans in this house. I am a BIG fan of chicken thighs - they are cheap and you can cook them a bunch of different ways. The plus is that the boys both like any meal made with chicken thighs. My Mother in Law gave me this recipe, I have no idea where it came from, but it's freaking delicious and will be added to our 'it was so good you can make it again' list. With a few fresh ingredients, and a little prep, this Honey and Lime Glazed Chicken is sure to be a hit at any dinner table. What you will need for Honey and Lime Glazed Chicken: 8 bonless, skinless chicken thighs 2 Tbsp. honey 2 Tbsp. lime juice 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 1 clove of garlic; minced pinch of paprika salt & pepper to taste 2 Tbsp. oil In a bowl, combine honey, lime juice, Dijon, garlic and paprika. Whisk until mixed well.

Catch the Moment 365: Week Twenty Eight


Welcome to Catch the Moment 365: Week Twenty Eight! Linking up as always with some amazing women. Stephanie over at Behind the Camera and Dreaming, Sarah over at Nurse Loves Farmer and Mindi over at Simply Stavish. There is no way to go about this nicely - so here it is... I had a really shitty week. Not just with my photography, but life in general just sucked! I hate to be a Debbie Downer and all - and the worst part - It's my Birthday today and I still feel like poop! We had a really busy weekend, and I captured some great memories. But throughout the week, I was lazy when it came to capturing moments. I just wasn't fully into it this week. We did manage to get a trip to the water park in - as well as a trip to the beach and also to the river. But this week for me, I was lacking inspiration.   192 | 365 Etoile Violette   193 | 365 The Beam   194 | 365 The Vedder   195 | … [Continue reading]
