lime chicken with cilantro cream sauce and roasted zucchini

Lime chicken with cilantro cream sauce and roasted zucchini

I greatly simplified this recipe as it looked a bit too complex for my time, but it was still delicious. I also did without the chicken, since it's Friday.

Theological Question of the Day

Over lunch, Mali asks: Who can eat this avacado pit?

I respond, "No one eats the pits of avacados."

She thinks it over and then questions, "Can God eat the pit of an avacado?"

bbq yogurt marinated chicken

I saw this recipe on the back of our Brown Cow plain, cream top yogurt and thought I would give it a whirl- and it was a cinch-- and pretty tasty.

1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup olive oil
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP rosemary
1 TBSP thyme
1 TBSP salt (seriously? i used 1 tsp)
1 TBSP pepper
4 chicken breasts (i made a couple extra for leftovers- there was plenty of marinade)

Mix all ingredients together and add chicken. Let marinate in fridge for at least 2 hours. Grill chicken on med. high. Serve with backyard bbq favorites (so suggests the Brown Cow container). We had ours with corn and baked beans and strawberries.
