The other day, I was incredibly bored at work so I began perusing through the cooking magazines that we have for sale. I came across an interesting looking recipe for chicken salad sandwiches (which I modified a teeny bit). Perhaps you are taken aback that it was a recipe for chicken salad since I am a pescatarian after all. Well I haven't fallen off of the bandwagon completely, but I do have my reasons (and a very good one at that).
Rio De Janeiro Chicken Salad
Minced Yellow Onion
Salt and Pepper
Mix all of this in a bowl.
In another bowl add:
a little bit of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Toast two pieces of whole grain bread, put on a piece of lettuce, chicken salad, and carrot relish. Enjoy!
So you know those treasuries that are always on the home page of Etsy? Well I made my very first one today in honor of all of my Oregon memories. If you would like to look at my treasury up close, click here. In August, my sisters and I are all going out to Oregon to visit our dear grandparents and I cannot wait!
When I was younger, my family lived in Oregon but after we moved away I would still go back for the summers. I love my grandparents so much and am really looking forward to seeing them. If you are curious as to each specific memory that the Etsy item represents, just ask...
A year ago my mom sent me tons and tons of vintage Meyercord decals, housewives used to adorn everything from their kitchen cabinets to cotton ball jars with these once inexpensive decals. I've been busy myself with them...
(See what I had for lunch? It was a Veggie Delight sub with extra, extra jalapenos.)
The final product, and here it is in my shop if you would like to take a look.
D. and I are pretty bad about taking pictures, but a few weeks ago some pals of ours from Maryland came up to visit us and on our walk to get coffee and play Settlers of Catan, we stopped at took some pictures at an old church.
Happy June 1st everyone! June is my most favorite month since it is a mixture of spring and summer and I love summer! Today D. and I will be taking a jaunt to IKEA to buy some pots for our herbs and tomatoes we are going to plant. There is nothing like vine ripened tomatoes (that are not ripened with ethanol) they are delicious. I think you should plant some. Anyway, here is a fun little questionnaire of sorts, reminds me of the emails all my pals and I would forward to each other in high school. :)
