Avocado Chicken Salad with Cilantro and Lime

I made this for a party and got so many compliments. It is really light and summery tasting. It is just perfect! I found the recipe here:

Chicken Salad

2 lbs chicken breasts, shredded

1/4 cup lime juice

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

3 avocado's

3 green onions

1/2 cup cilantro, lightly packed

I just mashed the avocado, salt, pepper and lime juice together and then mixed it with the shredded chicken then I added the green onion and cilantro and refrigerated it for an hour or two.

Oatmeal at it's Finest.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday...and Saturday and Sunday usually we have oatmeal. We are constantly changing it up. We just use quick oats, and make them normal on the stove. We do not add any honey or sugar, just a sprinkle of salt. If you add enough fruit it sweetens it up quite a bit. The ones on the picture would be great for Valentines day. Here are some idea's:

My boys favorite:
Put frozen or fresh raspberries in the water before adding the quick oats.
Slice up a banana in the oats just after adding them.
Add dried apples and raisins while the water is preparing to boil.

We also do:
Slice frozen strawberries and add them to water just before the oats.
Sliced frozen Blackberries in the water as it prepares to boil.
Fresh or frozen blueberries.

If you ask my boys what their favorite breakfast is they ALWAYS say quick oats.

Ice Cream??

This is delicious. We made a big batch and kept it in the freezer. It freezes HARD so we leave it out for a bit so it comes out soft.

1 banana
1 cup of strawberries
1/3 cup of almond milk

I found this recipe on Pinterest here.
