Watermelon Slush

Today me and little man had really big plans!!   We played and played in the backyard with our little kiddie pool and splash table for hours!   It was our first 90+ degree weather for the year and I can’t think of another way then spending the day with my little guy!

Since it was hotter the crap outside we needed to have a quick refresher.    We just so happen to have lots of watermelon left over from Memorial weekend.  So I got to thinking  how great watermelon would taste in slushy.   So ladies and gentlemen that is how the Watermelon Slush was born!!   Even my little 2 year old gulped it down!

It was so simple, so easy, so tasty and so refreshing everyone will love it!!!

Monterey Chicken

Are you all excited that summer is right around the corner?  I know we are!!  I’m excited for the fun summer days that end with a late summer nights.   Those summer nights where the temperature outside is perfect, the parents all sit around having a good time and the kids are running around and around way past there bed time and when bed time comes they simply pass out as they crawl in to bed.

The next best thing is grilling season is finally able to happen!!    During the summer I bet we grill at least 2 times a week.   Its perfect way to cook when the temperatures reach 100+  then my house stays nice and cool and im not spending a lot of time missing out on the fun outside.

This  Monterey Chicken Recipe is one of our favorite’s to make.  Its full of flavor and its simple to make.   It puts a great twist on the normal Barbecue Chicken recipe.   Your entire family will fall in love with this Monterey Chicken.

I’m going to be completely honest here,  I have never ever tried a Tyson Cornish Hen!   I know it is a shocker but it just something I didn’t have growing up or I was in my phase of I don’t eat meat and no you will not make me try it.     But  getting back to the point i’m a new fan of these Tyson Cornish Hens.   I like how they are smaller then a normal chicken and alot easier to deal with plus they are full of flavor and tender. With the help of Kikkoman we have made the perfect chicken Seasoning for these Cornish hens!

Are you all sitting down……okay good?    Well I was so excited to give this opportunity a try!   We love pizza at our house and we actually have it quite often.    I always have frozen pizza in the freezer, because let’s face it kids love it and they will actually eat it.    Well with summer fast approaching last thing I want to do is heat up the house with the oven on.   I didn’t believe this at first but once I tried it I knew we would be making pizza this way a lot more.  So how did we make it you ask…well I cooked this Jack’s pizza on the grill in my backyard, no preheating the oven, no dirty pizza dish and no hot house afterwards.   Yup, That’s right, you can grill it!!  Just simply place Jack’s pizza on your gas grill and go run around  the backyard with the kiddo’s.
