Happy Easter!! (If you’re reading this on Easter, which is “today”)
If not… Happy “Whatever Day it is when you’re reading this”)
The weather is warming up, the sun has been shining and I feel the life coming back into the world. Everyone seems to get into this “funk” when it’s been cold for too long, and I love that everyone is getting out and about now.
On Friday, my cousin Crystal and I (along with her adorable babies) headed out to Greensboro for a little shopping and enjoyed a nice drive in this gorgeous weather. It’s so nice to get out and just do what we wanted to do. No real plans, other than an idea of what stores we wanted to visit, no real schedule, just fun times.
Before we left Greensboro to head home, we drove over to Delicious Bakery to check out their cupcakes. My friend Ashley suggested it and I’m so glad she did! (We actually had a lot of suggestions for bakeries in Greensboro from Facebook and Twitter, so we’ve got a lot of places to check out on our next trip!)
I may had splurged just a bit (ok well, we both did). I brought home a dozen beautiful, amazing cupcakes for dessert tonight. I’m so excited! (It’s the little things in life haha)
Other than that I found some beautiful Blue Pillows for our new living room at TJ MAXX (I’m totally loving that I get to decorate our new house). I’m making the living room colors: Chocolate Brown, Light Blue and Cream. I think it will be lovely. 🙂 We’ll see.
I’m sorry, I got distracted with Friday’s events and wanted to share.
Let me get back to the Grilled Orange & Lime Chicken Thighs, I mean that’s why you’re here right?
I love citrus. I love limes, oranges and grapefruit. I sorta kinda like lemon. NOT in my tea though. Yuck!
Anyways, these chicken thighs with the orange and lime juice are just so good. They’re juicy and flavorful. I truly enjoyed them. In my quest to eat more “real food”, I’ve started to just buy what looks good in the produce section and work on making food around what I’ve bought. That’s where these Grilled Orange & Lime Chicken Thighs come in.
A little bit of experiment, a little inspiration from the Salmon-Honey Teriyaki I made out of the Steamy Kitchen cookbook and a little love from the oranges and limes that followed me home. It’s so very simple, and so good.
