Hello BBQ season! Grilling is one of my favorite things to do during the summer. Food simply tastes better when it’s BBQ’d, like this recipe for Chili Lime Chicken.

We recently bought a new patio set which means we’ll be spending, even more, time outside as we eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. What I desperately missed last year was spending time with my family outside during dinner. We sold our last set before we moved to PG and I’m glad that we’ll finally be back to our old summer routine.

I’ve been busy and because of that, I have also been feeling off of my game. I am constantly forgetting my lists, my phone, and my organizational skills. Do you have any idea how many times I have come back from the grocery store this month only to realize I forgot the main ingredient that I went to the store to grab in the first place?

That’s why I really like the Shopping with Chicken App. Not only does this app simplifies our grocery tasks but it has a list share feature. This feature allows my husband and I share a grocery list, so if he happens to be at the store he can check the list and pick up a few things for dinner. It saves me time and when I forget important items, he can grab them for me.

  1. This recipe sounds delicious and a nice change from our normal grilled chicken marinade. I also love your chicken chart and I’ll be buying a new meat thermometer this year to help me not over cook things. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday. Pinned.

  2. I’m renovating my kitchen this summer, so I’ll be using the grill for dinners, this sounds like something I need to add to the meal plan. Thanks for linking up with #HomeMattersParty
