So we're trading again on the 18th of July. I filled Kim and Tressa's spots with ladies from my old neighborhood. As soon as you know what your making let me know. We've enjoyed everything from last months trade so far, it's been delicious.

Free Recipes & Yummy Chicken

Hi everyone! We are so enjoying all the meals we received on Friday. My husband is so excited about all the BBQ-it is his favorite.

I wanted to let you all know about this free magazine I get that has a lot of great recipe ideas. It is published by Kraft Foods and comes out 4 times a year. A lot of their recipes are very family friendly and could probably be frozen. They also have a lot of great photo's, shopping ideas, and healthy snack ideas. Anyway check it out if you get a second. You can go to kraftfoods.com and just sign up to have it mailed to you-it is called "Food & Family."

I also wanted to post this great summer grilling recipe. It doesn't freeze well, but it is so yummy.
Garlic-Lime Chicken

1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cilantro leaves (finely chopped)

1. In a glass dish or a large plastic bag, combine ingredients.
2. Add chicken, turn and coat. Refrigerate 15-20 min.
3. Remove from marinade and grill or broil 5-7 min. per side.
Baste with the leftover marinade during cooking.

The acid from the lime juice will start to cook the outside of the chicken, so you don't need to marinade it more than the suggested time.
I have served this over rice. It is also very good used as the meat for fajitas.

The "indian tacos" as my kids called them, were wonderful. All of us, including kids, enjoyed them. Thanks! -Kim

We had them too and they were great! I served taco soup to my parents for Sunday dinner, Korrin, and the loved it! Thanks for all the food. We are loving everything. I talked to Stephanie and she's in for next month--she just was mixed up about the trade date. Nora

I'm good for next week's trade date. I won't be here but Robyn can open my garage and my food will be in the freezer. Come in and swap away. If anyone needs freezer space you can call me on my cell. 662-9849. I can't wait for these meals. We have loved the food this time around.
