Happy Birthday, Easy Fajitas & What I'm Listening To

First things first...Happy Birthday to my absolute favorite, most wonderful two year old in the whole, wide world...Zoey aka...Baby Zuzu!!! I cannot believe she is two years old! I just adore her!!! More pics of the birthday girl will be posted tomorrow!! Now, here's a super-duper, quick and easy way to make child-friendly fajitas.
I start by pounding my boneless, skinless chicken breasts until they are nice and flat. I season both sides with a little EVOO, salt, pepper and thyme. If you want them to be spicy, feel free to season with chili powder, red pepper flakes and/or cumin.

Next, I grill the chicken on a grill pan. In another sautee pan, I add a little EVOO, some onions, and sliced red and green peppers.

When everything is fully cooked, I let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, and slice into thin strips. Last, we stuff our tortillas with the peppers and onions, chicken and our favorite condiments (lettuce, shredded cheese, guacamole and sour cream!)

I looooooove music, but I am probably the only person on the planet who doesn't have an ipod. It's not that I don't want one, but have never really found the need for it. I do have an itunes account and I burn cds every few weeks. I listen to itunes off of my computer when I'm cooking, cleaning, working out, doing the dishes and scrapping. I thought it would be fun to document what is on my current play list. I like to mix up my favorite new songs with some of my favorite old songs. My favorite band in the world is Pearl Jam, so there is almost always at least one song by them on my current playlist.
If you don't have any of these songs on your ipod or playlist, check them out today! Sooo good!

Here it is. My current playlist:
*Mine by Taylor Swift
*DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love by Usher
*The Only Exception by Paramore
*Raise Your Glass by Pink
