Weekends wear me out!!

This weekend was a very busy one, to say the least. Jeff announced on Friday night that we have all 4 Bears tickets, so all of us would go to the game, I had to do a big grocery trip in town for the tailgate! That took most of the day on Saturday, because Cass had private shooting lessons and Nick had play practice, so I couldn't leave until they were home, Jeff had to work.
We all met back here for lunch and then we all went into the yard for some chores. I threw some more stuff on the veggie lasagna bed and Nick mowed while Jeff pulled lawn weeds.
Then, we had church @ 6. After church, we had chili lime chicken which went so fast I couldn't take a picture!! The following is courtesy of!

Grilled Chile-Lime Chicken

Fresh-tasting and flavorful, this chicken is a party in your mouth!


teaspoons grated lime peel


cup lime juice


cup olive or vegetable oil


tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


teaspoon sugar


teaspoon salt


small jalapeƱo chile, seeded, finely chopped


clove garlic, finely chopped


boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/4 lb)

1 .

To make marinade, in shallow glass or plastic dish, or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except chicken.

2 .

Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Add chicken to marinade; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 24 hours.

3 .

Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Cover and grill chicken over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).

I know lots of folks omit the peppers in their recipes, but this one really needs the jalepeno! It is wonderful! Even Nick ate it and he hates cilantro!

After dinner, I went in the basement and finished painting the bathroom and the kids and Jeff started to move Nick in his new room!! The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. You know he was sooo excited about that!!
After I painted for an hour, I gathered the things up for the tailgate on Sunday morning and went to bed around midnight!

Sundown, Saturday night!

Now, I have a PTL function, so I will post the pics of the tailgate and the city, tomorrow!!
