I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but in NC it’s HOT! I don’t think it’s dipped below 90 since we moved here. In order to cool off and also celebrate national cheesecake appreciation, I’ve whipped up these Lime Cheesecake Popsicles that are sure to cool you off and fill your need …
I got back Monday morning from Food & Wine Conference and I learned so much while I was there. One of my favorite sessions was a food styling session done by Denise Vivaldo. She was not only hysterical, but I learned so many tips that’ll save me time as well as save me from melted …
I head back to school in a week and we’re trying to find as many quick dinners as possible because preparing dinner with a toddler and a newborn can be a bit hectic. Luckily, Tyson offers a vast array of choices. The best part is that many of those choices are part of their Project A+Program. As a teacher in an inner city school district during an economic time when budgets are being cut in school districts, I appreciate programs that give back to your specific school. I know that by purchasing Tyson’s Grilled & Ready Southwestern Chicken Strips I’m not only making a fabulous meal with my Lime Cilantro Chicken Rice Bowl, but I’m also providing a donation for my school. It’s a win, win!

The process to sign up for Tyson’s Project A+ Program is extremely simple. Simply head over to Project A+ and click on the Look Up Your School button, which you see below. Once you’re there, you’ll use your school’s phone number, zip code, or state to see if it is already enrolled. If it’s not, it’s just four easy clicks to enroll your school and your school will have the opportunity to earn $0.24 for every label collected. That is so much more than other programs offer.
Plus, there are so many products that qualify for the program. All you need to do is find the label on Tyson products with the Program A+ label. I’m not sure about your school, but I know that at my school we are rationed with how much paper we are allowed to use at the beginning of the year. Paper!!! We clearly would benefit from this program and I was happy to see that someone had already enrolled our school when I looked it up.
Now when I need a quick meal I know that I can use my Tyson product and know that it’s putting food on the table, but also paper in my students hands. You’ll be shocked how easy a meal can become when you have a half meal solution. I used Tyson’s Grilled & Ready Southwestern Chicken Strips for my Lime Cilantro Chicken Rice Bowl and the spices on the chicken worked perfectly. My Lime Cilantro dressing definitely tied the rice bowl together into a complete flavorful meal.

There is nothing better when a meal turns into two different dinners. Last week I shared my Lime Tequila Shrimp Kabobs. Today I’m sharing how to turn those kabobs into a second meal with a Lime Parmesan Risotto. I promise that you’ll love using these leftovers.
