DSC_0351EDIT

Watermelon. It’s a love/hate relationship. It would figure that one of my favorite fruits ever would cause me the biggest hassle ever to prepare. “I LOVE cutting watermelon”…Said no one ever. It seriously took me like 45 minutes to cut a melon…until my sister introduced me to an epiphany which left me speechless and angry with all those minutes I wasted nearly cutting off one of my fingers.

We eat melon around here like crazy. I even got so desperate that I gave Jordan puppy-dog eyes and a pout to convince him that we absolutely NEEDED a nifty melon slicer from Sam’s Club. It works amazingly on cantaloupe and honey dew..but a large watermelon, not so much.¬†

Mango-Peach Salsa Chicken

I was daring yesterday and decided to clean out “the drawer“. You know, that one where random things seem to wander¬†and you never know what you are going to find.

We definitely need to add some flavor and variety to our usual meal plan.

Mediterranean Chicken

Perfect meals are those that can be prepped in a matter of about 15-20 minutes and require little attention to cook and serve. This yummy dish is able to accomplish just that.

One thing I miss from living at home was the delectable meals..and this is one of them. I always assumed it was super hard to make so I didn’t even ask how in the world it was made. I’ve basically lived without this dish for SEVEN years. WHAT?! For some odd reason, I was craving it so badly yesterday and decided to give it a shot. It turned out just as perfect as I remembered.
