Sunny Days, Barbeques, Food Ideas and Fun!!!!!!!

Hey all here are a few thoughts for meals for this weekend. The weather is supposed to be nice so I thought a few BBQ ideas would be fun. These are so easy so go for it. And remember your grocery lists are included so simply copy, paste, print and away you go.

Garlic & Lime Chicken
All you do is marinate chicken breasts in Garlic & either freshly squeezed lime or lime juice (whatever you have on hand). Marinate them for about 30 minutes and then pop them on the BBQ.

Serve with boiled rice and a very simple green salad (cos lettuce, red onion, cucumber, grape tomatoes)

Grocery List:
6 chicken breasts
Fresh garlic or minced prepared garlic
Rice (if you don’t already have some)
Lettuce (cos lettuce – you want something crunchy)
Red onion
Grape tomatoes

Tim’s Grilled Vegetable and Pasta Salad
1 Red pepper (Capsicum) sliced lengthwise & deseeded
1 Green pepper (Capsicum) sliced lengthwise & deseeded
1 Red onion peeled & halved
1 Zucchini (Courgette) halved lengthwise
2 Roma tomatoes halved lengthwise
2/3 cup Kalamata olives
200g salami chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese
4 cloves of garlic pressed
1 lemon
2 cups rigatoni pasta
3 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried coriander (optional)
Olive oil
2 handfuls chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
Salt & pepper

1. Pre-grilling marinade: Mix juice of half lemon, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 3 pressed cloves garlic, 1 tspn oregano, coriander (optional), 1/4 tspn salt and fresh ground pepper. This is the pre-grilling marinade.
2. Toss and coat peppers, onion, zucchini, and roma tomatoes in marinade and let stand.
Grill vegetables in oven at 175 degrees for 35-40 minutes or on BBQ until slightly browned but still firm. (Alternatively stir fry)
3. Refrigerate vegetables to cool then slice peppers, cut zucchini and onion into bite size pieces,
Cook rigatoni al dente & strain under cold running water to cool. Refrigerate.
4. Dressing: Mix juice of half lemon, 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 pressed clove garlic, 2 tsp oregano, salt & pepper to taste.
5. To assemble toss cooled pasta in dressing, then add grilled vegetables and chopped parsley and gently toss to coat with dressing. Add salami, olives and feta cheese.
6. Serve on platter garnished with chopped parsley! Enjoy!

Grocery List:
1 Red pepper (Capsicum)
1 Green pepper (Capsicum)
1 Red onion
1 Zucchini
2 Roma tomatoes (they’re the egg shaped tomatoes)
Kalamata olives (the black ones)
200g salami chopped
Feta cheese
1 lemon
2 cups rigatoni pasta
Dried coriander (optional and I haven’t included the dried oregano because most of us have it in out cupboard)
Fresh flat leaf parsley

A Desert Idea for the Family
The Sundae Stack:
Ice Cream
Sponge Cake
Chocolate Sauce
Nuts if there are no allergies if allergies crush up some Oreos or chocolate chip cookies.

Choose your own fillings and layer your sundae dish (or water glass if you don’t have sundae dishes) with all the toppings. To add a bit of fun do it at the table (put all the toppings in the middle of the table and go for it) when your finished your masterpiece swap it with the person on your left. This just adds a bit of joy and makes it careful there could be tears. Have fun!

I tried the lemon garlic chicken. It was so good. I added a lemon sweet and sour sauce to it after it was cooked so it was a little more juicy. My husband loved it and so did I. It was so simple. I was going out for the afternoon so marinated it all afternoon. MMMMMMM Good. So easy.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
