Are you feeling a tiny bit confused right now? Maybe like I typed a word [CHIPOTLE] in the title that just didn’t quite belong, or maybe you think I’ve totally fallen off my dessert rocker.

But I have not. I am firmly planted on my rocker with a plate of these blondies plus ice cream, er… I mean… you get what I’m saying, right?

First day of school! First day of school!

Wherrrrrrrre did my summer go? Today it’s back to sharing my early mornings with the fellas, reminding them to hang up towels, brush their teeth, and eat some breakfast.

I mean, we do all those things in the summer, but they do them at like 11 am instead of 6. This day is a rude awakening.

Grilled Chimichurri Chicken

Tender chicken marinated in a simple chimichurri made of parsley, cilantro, and oregano. Cooked (and if you can manage smoked!) over an open flame, this Grilled Chimichurri Chicken is full of fresh herb flavor and just a hint of spice. It’s our year-round grilled favorite.

Grilled Chimichurri Chicken

I feel like a schmo posting grilling recipes as we all head back to the weekday grind and routine of fall, but here it is. This is still appropriate until Labor Day, right?

Just agree with me.

Anyway I live in North Carolina, so it will be 90° and 800% humidity for another 40 days at least.

Snack time!!!

Newsflash: I am an afternoon snacker/coffee addict. That’s not really news though.

I think it’s because I’m up so early? And then I’m ready for lunch by 10:30 a.m. By 2:30 p.m. I am totally ravenous. And lots of days I would probably be totally down with an early bird dinner special at 4:30 in the afternoon. Can I have a senior discount if I eat before 5?

Except it’s SUMMER and the sun is out until forever, so dinner before 5 would probably mean hangry at 9 p.m. And THAT, my friends, seems like a recipe for blue jean disaster.

Lemon Pie Ice Cream

I have this problem with pie recipes where I tend to turn pie-flavored things into other desserts. Like these. Or these. Or this.

I promise I can make a real pie. It’s just… there are so many pie flavors!!! And I sort of stress over things like perfect slices. So I guess it’s just easier this way.

Meal Plans Made Simple #30

We are more than 30 weeks in (we skipped a few meal plans here and made you guys figure it out on your own. Sorry!) to a 52 week year. What the what?! The sun is setting sooner, and the early mornings here have that distinct crisp in the air that I associate with standing at the school bus stop with new sneakers on. I have also been spending waaay more time in the kitchen, and totally bought a ceramic pumpkin porch decoration the other day. No worries. It’s still in the closet. Anyway, I’m finding that meal planning is getting to be more fun with back-to-school just around the bend. This week has lots of goodies to offer!
