Miller Family reunion

We are in Yellowstone and having a wonderful time. I am enjoying sharing recipes and food. My uncle Jer is a great cook and loves to cook with me and vise versa. I squeezed 14 limes for him yesterday and he used them in salsa and lime cilantro chicken, my cousin Darin's favorite. Uncle Jer had to give me an adjustment this am because of the lime squeezing or the bed. I am not sure.....Thank goodness he is a Chiropractor! He wanted the recipes for the breakfast I made on their first day here and the dessert that evening. So here's for you uncle Jer-I love you
