Cilantro Lime Chicken and Rice
I love grilling. I was pretty happy that I was able to maintain ownership of our awesome grill after the divorce.
I got the house, and the grill came with it, since my ex-husband was moving into an apartment. SCORE.
I know, it's silly. But it's the little things in life, people.
We have to celebrate even the smallest of victories.
You will love our Cilantro Lime Chicken and Rice year round!
Are you a fan of grilling? I feel so fortunate to be able to grill year-round in Miami!
I remember way, way back when a friend was in Washington DC during a huge snow storm and she posted a photo of her in her puffy down jacket and mittens grilling burgers in five feet of snow.
I laughed so hard...then sent her a private message of me in my shorts and tank top grilling burgers.
Sometimes I can be mean to my friends, but it's all in good fun!
