People keep telling me that summer vacation is over. They are probably unpacking their suitcase, kicking the sand out of their shoes and finding places for all the cute little tchotchkes they bought on their Cancun get a way. Wait… you didn’t go to Cancun? Don’t feel bad, I didn’t get to go to the beach this year, either. In fact, I’ve decided I’m not going to be so nice about it this year. I’ve decided I’m going to rebel about it. Ya, that’s it, I’m going to put on my own “occupy” protest. I’m going to camp in the backyard and not take a bath until somebody takes me to the beach. This year, summer isn’t over until I say so!
Well, maybe I’ll come in to shower and stuff… it is 150 degrees out there.
Or, maybe, I’ll just stay in under the air conditioner, make my Cancun Grilled Chicken Tacos with Citrus Chile Marinade and pretend I’m at the beach.
You can even stage your own protest. Your family will love these tacos. I tried them out on my brother’s family this summer and his kids ate until there was nothing left on the table. It really made a fun weeknight meal and I was amazed at how fast it came together. Especially with my niece, Audrey, making the guacamole! We set bowls of the taco ingredients around the table “family style” to really get the kids talking to each other after a long day….
