It is hot here in Mississippi!  We had a few days that were nicer, not so humid, and luckily those fell during the holiday weekend while my parents were visiting.  Well, lucky for them, at least.   My parents were prepared for our heat, though.  They brought the boys a blow up pool!  Ha!  It […]

Grilled Chicken Tacos with Spiced Mayo and Avocado Salsa

Grilled Chicken Tacos with Spiced Mayo and Avocado from SeededAtTheTable.com

These grilled chicken skewers, folded into tortillas and topped with spiced mayo and avocado salsa, are an interesting option for spicing up the grilling season.  We like to grill the tortillas, too, so they have a tiny bit of crisp to them.  Grill them for only seconds, though, so they are still pliable enough to […]
