The recipe is simple-as-pie, and without further adieu, here it is, because I am sure you would much rather make it than read about it!
CHERRY ALMOND CHICKEN SALAD
8 oz. cooked chicken breast, cooled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped sweet onion (likeVidalia)
2 tablespoons slivered almonds, chopped a bit
2 tablespoons celery, finely diced
2 tablespoons dried cherries or cherry-flavored dried cranberries, finely chopped
a couple grinds of black pepper
enough mayonnaise to hold it all together
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except mayonnaise. Stir in mayo, a tablespoon or two at a time, until it's the way you like it. (Mayonnaise is a personal thing - I like just enough to hold it together). There you go!
Toast some nice, whole-grain bread, slice a ripe tomato, and tear off some pretty lettuce leaves, and you have the makings for an amazing sandwich!
|This was my lunch... the sandwich was my dinner! I LOVE this stuff!|
And for no reason, thought you might like to see one of my baby tomatoes, happily growing among the petunias!
|Gettin' along! |
Just after I snapped this photo, a Hummingbird came to visit the pink petunias!
And before I go, I'll tell you something, I miss my boys! Katie and Bill took the boys to Mystic, CT (or as Henry says "Neticut") for a mini-vacation visiting friends. They're doing the whole seaport thing, and I am sure they're having a great time, long overdue, and well-deserved. As I was leaving my house this morning, I realized that there were yogurt hand prints on my French door leading to the staircase, and I just don't have the heart to wipe that away until I see those boys again. How crazy is that? I just love looking at those tiny handprints and they're going to stay until I see those little guys when they come home!

Have a great weekend, my friends!
