Lazy Days of Summer

Pug closed again today so we slept in, then he made us breakfast of leftover english muffins and fried eggs. Once again Pon and I went to the pool as soon as Pug left for work, and stayed for an hour. Cartoons during lunch ("Dora Soup" for Pon and yesterday's leftovers for me) followed by a two hour nap, more cartoons and chores before hitting the pool again for another hour and a half before dinner. Tonight I made jalapeno chicken, based on an AllRecipes app find from forever ago.

"It tastes jamaican jerk inspired with an asian twist!" ~Pug
Jalapeno Chicken adapted from

4 jalapenos, capped and seeded if desired
4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp coarse salt
1 Tbsp oregano (I used italian seasoning)
1/4 C lime juice (I used a little more as I wanted to finish off a bottle)
8 chicken tenders

Finely mince the jalapeƱos. Combine with all other ingredients in a large ziptop bag or covered dish. Marinade for 8 hours or overnight (I ended up marinading my chicken for almost 30 hours) turning occasionally. Remove chicken from bag and sautee, bake or grill until done, discard marinade.

I served my chicken with white rice and green beans sauteed with 2 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp garlic powder and 1/4 C soy sauce. It was a tasty meal, although next time I think I'll only deseed two peppers rather than three for a little more oof.

Also, while stumbling about the internet today, I found this:

How perfect is that?
