Mesquite Chicken Sticks

Mesquite Chicken Sticks

I have had chicken cooked hundreds of ways in my life, but this is by far the best chicken I have had in a looooong time.

Mesquite Chicken Sticks are grill ready chicken tenders with a kick of mesquite flavor.

Honey and a stout beer….in my case Guinness, make for a sweet flavorful marinade. Add some red pepper flakes for heat…..we love heat in this house!! Continue reading “Mesquite Chicken Sticks”

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast

It’s my first official day of Spring Break……yeah!!!!!!!!

My first official order of business…sleep in……well, that failed! So, instead I got up and at it. To  get your motor running, you need fuel, a.k.a. breakfast. I eat breakfast everyday, it may  be a smoothie, my favorite is our Raspberry Chia Smoothie or a granola bar. If we are home Tim and I liked scrambled eggs or Tim’s famous egg sandwich……he makes the best egg sandwich!!!

I have decided on my Spring Break to work on my eating habits……they are way out of hand. I have jumped on the Avocado Toast band wagon. There are a million recipes, that I am sure are just like mine……but I really like my Avocado Toast!!!

It’s simple, easy, quick, and has just a touch of red pepper flakes, to rev you up.

Lemon Squeeze
Place avocado in small bowl and squeeze with fresh lemon juice.
Salt & Red Pepper
Sprinkle in salt and red pepper flakes to taste and mash.

Half an avocado, mashed with lemon juice, salt, and red pepper flakes, then spread on toast…..for me an english muffin. I prefer english muffins to toast. The perfect breakfast! or Lunch!


Spread on Muffin
Spread on english muffin or toast choice.


Avocados are full of vitamins, fiber, and healthy fats….a super food. With just around 225 calories the avocado toast ( calories can vary depending on your choice of bread) won’t break the calorie bank and will keep satisfied until lunch……speaking of lunch……….
