Spirit-Filled Life

Early every morning
I walk around our backyard
admiring the plants
and Freddy walks with me.
I find inspiration
in the beauty of the hydrangeas.
The clematis.
The dill.
The eggplant.
The jalapenos.
The tomatoes.
The lettuce.
The basil and cilantro.
The parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
The butterfly bush.
The blue thistle.
The zinnias.
The Russian Sage.
The coral bells.
The coneflowers.
Such beauty and
Abundance.
Thank You God.

The First Jalapeno Pepper

I am always so grateful to see my garden plants producing healthy produce.

Today and Tranquility

A new Instagram friend wrote to me yesterday:

“There’s a certain tranquility in your photography. Art at its best.”

Often, it is the smallest things for which I am most grateful.

Simple and delicious. Perfect summer dinner.

Grilled Chicken with Salsa

1 medium lime
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper
4 (1/4 lb.) skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 cups 1/2-inch diced strawberries

1/4 cup minced red onion
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro or basil
2 tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
1 tsp. sugar

Preheat grill or grill pan. Zest lime; set aside. Juice lime; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine 1 Tbsp. of the lime juice, garlic, 1/2 tsp. olive oil, salt and pepper. Add chicken, turn to coat both sides and set aside.

In another medium bowl, combine strawberries, pineapple, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, sugar, remaining lime juice, the lime zest and the remaining 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil. Taste for seasoning and add salt and/or extra minced jalapeño if you like it spicy.

Grill chicken breasts and serve with salsa spooned over top.
