#2: Finally Investing In a Patio Set That Will Go The Distance
As I posted this week, I've worked with By The Yard in the past. This patio set is the BEST.
After having a couple other patio sets over the years that were not only on the cheap side- but had to be moved into the garage and then dragged back out every spring- only to still lose their luster after a few years...was...bleeping frustrating.
Spending the extra money on this set was 100% worth it. If you spend as much time hanging outside as we do, consider an upgrade. You can thank me later :) By The Yard
#3: The Oh-So-Simple Chicken Recipe I'm Obsessed With
Before I begin, shout-out to my mother-in-law, Marilyn! She gave me this recipe, I've made it for three or four outdoor dinner parties and every single person has left our place asking for the recipe. It's so good...I dream about the sauce.
Bonus, it's simple. You can do everything but the grilling ahead of time. I'm a big fan of prepping before a party so I get to enjoy it too.
Chunk the chicken and throw it in a plastic bag.
In a bowl, combine-
*3oz Pineapple Juice
*1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
*3T. Canola Oil
*A Few Shakes Of Lemon Pepper
Marinate the chicken for at least a couple hours. When you're ready to grill, skewer it and throw it on.
The Sauce Of My Dreams:
*1/2 cup mayo
*1 clove minced garlic (I use the pre-minced stuff in the jar)
*1TBSP Soy Sauce
Stir and refrigerate.
If you have a gluten allergy, sub Liquid Aminos for the soy sauce. It tastes the same and is GF.
That's all for this week. Happy Shopping!
