Not too shabby.  Lots of fun was had and new memories made!  And all photographically documented, thanks to Project 365.  :)

Tonight we tried a new recipe from Cooking Light called Cilantro-Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa

It was good, considering that it was very easy to make and took about 25 minutes.


  1. That looks YUM. I love avacado, and I especially love quick prep. TFS.

    WTG on your summer fun list! I feel inspired to make a list of my own.

  2. Mmm, so nice with warm winds still! Here the weather is sunny, but much colder now. Fall is here!

    Great accomplishments on your list, you've sure done a lot of stuff this summer!

  3. You were busy this summer! Thanks for the recipe..I've got some avocado that needs to be used and this looks yummy!

    It's still hot and humid over on this side..I love Fall, but it really needs to cool off a bit. Growing a little weary of frizzy hair ;)

  4. thanks for sharing this yummy recipe with us!! Looks so delicious and I´ll give it a try - what a wonderful done summer list!!

    Yes the project is saving so many memories!
