I moved this weekend. (I know. Again??) It was just me and my dear friend Evie moving my entire apartment almost all day Saturday and most of Sunday morning. Since we weren’t moving very far and didn’t have access to a truck until yesterday, we walked most of my big things from my old place…

These are the best days of the year. The weather is warm and breezy, the sun is shining most days, and even if it’s not, there is a soothing, refreshing rain… The temperature is warm enough to wear all kinds of breezy dresses and open toed shoes, but not hot enough to make you wonder why…

Suuuummeeerrrrtiiiiiiiiime! And the livin’ is eeeeaasy….

Raise your hand if you like Chipotle (or another tex-mex establishment). Yes, yes, that’s what I thought. Hands going up high all over the world. Oh, boy. Whose hands are those waving madly over there? Good gracious, those people need to calm down. Oh… Wait. Those are my hands. Both of my hands. Yes, I looooove…

Well that Caribbean Sticky Rice was mighty good! But woman cannot live on rice and cilantro alone! She needs meat! And she mostly needs chicken. A smoky sweet, richly flavored, dark, charred skin chicken to be exact. A girl needs this, I tell you. And she needs little else. To give myself the Caribbean food…

Sooo let me start off by saying, I have no idea what to call this salad! Suggestions are most welcomed!
