Sunday Dinner

I saw this recipe for Cilantro Chicken on Holly's Blog and couldn't wait to try it.

Cilantro Chicken

2 T lime juice
2 T vegetable oil
1 T honey
4 chicken breasts
1 C finely crushed tortilla chips
16 oz. thick-n-chunky salsa
2 T minced fresh cilantro
1 C shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

Combine lime juice, honey, and oil. Dip chicken in lime juice mixture then coat with crushed chips. Place in ungreased 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake uncovered @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until juices run clear. Combine Salsa and Cilantro. Pour over and sprinkle with Cheese, bake for 20 more minutes or until the cheese melts.

I served it with Sour Cream and Guacomole as Holly suggested.
We LOVED it!
I forgot to take a picture so I borrowed Holly's.

Thank You Thursday

Two weeks ago we went on a fun trip to Provo, Utah for BYU Graduation. Kayley and Scott graduated on the 23rd of April and were headed to Dallas the 25th. They are so excited to be on to the next adventure .
It is always so fun to go back to that campus. I wish I could say nothing has changed in _?_ years. We won't say how many. It was a great trip. We got to see my brother Kirk and his family and Mark's sister Barbara and her fun group. We had so little time but managed to visit, reminisce and eat at some of our fave spots. Of course Here, Here and HERE (a new favorite Kayley and Scott discovered)....I'm so craving a cookie right now! You guys that live out there, will you have a frosted sugar cookie, and an oatmeal cranberry cookie and a cakebite of course FOR ME? ...... pleeeeeease

If you go again, next week, let me know and I'll put in another order!

Yesterday we had our little family celebration for Marci and Hope's birthday. I kept part of the Candy Bar up from Preston's baby shower. We had the "Cake LADY" make the cake ... per Hope's request :) We were thrilled with how it turned out. Can you believe the detail?! It was DEEEElishous too.

It was a beautiful day so sweet Aunt Hope took the cuties out on the trampoline for some fun.
Ella, Hope & AddieHurry Hope before Addie jumps off!

We are cute and we know it!
