Our go-to grill meal

As you can see, this card is beat-up as all-get-out.  My aunt served this years ago at one of our girls' weekends and we all came home with a copy of the recipe :)  I promise, promise, promise others will ask you for the recipe too. . .I can't tell you how often I am asked for it.
What you need:
Of course, this is *way* more then 1.5 pounds of chicken. . .I almost always double or triple the recipe so that's why so much is shown here. 

Mix together in a glass or plastic bowl 1 cup mayo (I use the "regular" full-fat kind, but I'm sure the lighter stuff would do too. . .this is what makes the chicken so moist), 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, and at least one crushed garlic clove.  I usually use 2-3.
Cut up the chicken into 1" pieces.  Basically, just so all the pieces are even, the same size. . .this is about 1.5 pounds.
And marinate in the dressing for several hours.  I usually make my dressing in a bowl big enough to accommodate the chicken too but putting everything into a plastic baggie works just as well!
Refrigerate, of course.  If you're going to use wooden skewers, remember to start soaking them at least an hour before grill time.

A couple years ago (when I first took these pictures and never posted them) I then forgot to take the "after" shots.  No problem. . .not only do we make them so often I was able to get cooked shots within a couple of weeks but also, it was the requested dinner on my son's 11th birthday! 
So. . .here is the birthday boy with his "mayonnaise chicken" -- as all my kids call it.  And by-the-by. . .I have a very picky eater who doesn't like mayo but loves this chicken. . .we just didn't tell her for the longest time that it had mayo in it. . . :)
Oh!  Looks like Mammaw and Grandpa were here to celebrate with us that year too :)
I hope you enjoy this grilled chicken recipe as much as we do :)  Let me know!!!

  2. If it's got mayo, I'm all over it! Sounds yummy! We don't have a grill, but I'm sure we can find someone who does. =) I'm not much of a griller, but I don't mind if someone else grills stuff for me to eat. =p

    The photos we got were form the past weekend and earlier in the week. It was definitely a full one. And hubby was off for the days I was at the practicum, and he got a ton of pics too, so I wouldn't miss what the girls did for the days. =p

    Have a wonderful weekend!

Sunday Dinner

This is the easy crockpot pork tenderloin dinner that I mentioned the other day. Obviously I'm not making it again today, but it IS a great Sunday dinner -- definitely good enough for company too. Here is your cast of characters:
Pork tenderloin, 1 can of each: Cream of Mushroom, Golden Mushroom, and French Onion. I am not a fan of processed foods, but this is an exception. I also don't really like mushrooms but they are easy to pick out of this dish if you like (I give all of mine to Margaret). That's it, that's all you need! Oh, and a crockpot and 8-10 hours :)

Here is what a pork tenderloin looks like if you've never bought one.
When you open it up you get this:Lots of people will further trim that fat. . .I don't because it will cook off. I do rinse and pat it dry at this point. Also, when my mother makes this she salt and peppers the meat -- I do not. My kids HATE pepper and I generally don't add salt to my cooking.

Add all three soups to the cro…

Love well

I needed some pictures late last week and realized that I don't spend enough time documenting the moments in life -- to me, if the picture is important enough to take, it's something I want to journal about.  It used to be that I was so busy documenting that I was forgetting to live in the moment. . .I think I have a much better balance now.  But then, this week, I was reminded of why pictures have always been important to me -- because LIFE is important and it's fleeting.
My aunt lost her son (in the sunglasses) this week.  It was unexpected.  He was 41.  He was one of my twin cousins.  Born on my sister's 2nd birthday.  I say "my aunt's son" because I can't imagine losing a child.  I'm sure no one can.  He was also a dad -- of that great kid all the way to the left in the front row.  J is 9.  So a boy is now without his father, and a mother and father without their  son.  His girlfriend lost her partner and many people lost a friend.  His sister…

Margaret's first 8th birthday party

Margaret had her 8th birthday party TWO WEEKS AGO!!! Ugh. It was on a Friday. The following Monday was the last day of school, then we left immediately for our trip "home" (300 miles away) and spent a week there. She had another party there, with family, ON her actual birthday. We traveled home Sunday, went to visit friends at Lake Cumberland in KY on Monday, "caught up" at home Tuesday, than visited Splash Country in Eastern TN with friends yesterday. Whew! Busy start to the summer :)This was the group of friends that were able to attend the party:Marie (her sister), AC, SM, EC, and the birthday girl herself :)She had three other people that were invited (she was 8, so I planned for a party of 8) but they didn't come.

We decided on a "crafting" party this year. My good friend and neighbor, Rene, works with Stampin' Up! and put together a great party at her house in her stamping room. The girls all made photo albums and charm bracelets. It…
