Sesame Ginger Chicken with Avocado ~ Molly's way

Have you discovered Skype yet? I am familiar with video conferencing and have utilized the technology in the business world, however it wasn’t until several months ago that I created a Skype account and began “skyping” with my sissy Debbie and niece Molly.

Debbie and Molly live in the Pacific Northwest and I live in the Southeast, which places me three hours ahead of them. I can’t tell you why we just signed up but we are now up and running on Skype, we love it! 

If you have a computer with video you can watch each other which is really cool and it’s free, yep that’s right so check it out. You can also make phone calls on Skype for free as well, you decide whether you utilize the video feature.   

Several nights a week we tune into the Sissy, Molly, bear (a dog not a real bear, he just sort of looks like one) and crazy kitty show! Crazy Kitty now rules the household, hitching a ride on bears back, climbing the walls and generally acting like, well a crazy kitty cat.

Great picture Molly!
Hubby suggested that we cancel our cable, he thinks the girls, and bear and crazy kitty are so much more fun to watch than some of the shows on the telly these days. Stay tuned. 

A week ago Monday sissy Deb sent hubby a txt that Molly was ready to Skype and wanted to make sure that we were both available. We signed on to Skype, Molly and Debbie were on screen decked out in matching aprons which were so very cute, sorry did not get a picture but will next time, my Mother purchased the hand made aprons from our friend Robin who is extremely talented. Robin owns and operates Log Spirit Bed and Breakfast in Athol, ID which is located between Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint, ID, I have stayed there and it is a beautiful place, if you are heading that way book a room, Robin and Lew will make sure you have a wonderful experience. 

Back to Skype, Molly had prepared sesame lime chicken which was baking in the oven and she wanted to share the recipe with us. Molly and I share a love for preparing healthy meals and tonight was a perfect example, green beans were served as a side and the chicken was topped by several slices of avocado.  

Last night I followed Molly’s recipe, marinated the chicken breasts, sliced up an avocado, tossed a green salad, while hubby fired up the grill. Grilled or baked this recipe is a keeper and I have chicken for lunch this week.  Thanks Molly girl it was delicious!  

And to top off the evening we signed onto Skype and Molly played her violin, crazy kitty actually sat and listened, as for bear he loves when Molly plays and seemed pleased that kitty left him alone!

Do you have any children that you share the love to cook with? Do they have any quick and easy recipes?
