I had my day all planned yesterday, I was going to work out in my flower gardens in the sunshine! I waited until mid afternoon, and went out anyway, at least it wasn’t raining. A ray of sunshine at our back yard is frequent orioles visiting our feeders. We usually have two pairs that come but this year one day we counted 12. We haven’t seen that many at one time again but there are usually at least 2 and several waiting in a tree near by for their turn.
Last week in the list of ingredients in the pancake recipe the 2 eggs were omitted. They were mentioned in the method so I hope if you tried them you caught on. I do apologize for the omission. Two weeks ago I entertained friends for lunch and served todays chicken salad. Its my favorite, I’m sorry if I have put it in before but its worth repeating if I have! Plan ahead should be refrigerated overnight.
Special Chicken Salad
3 cups cooked cubed chicken
1 can sliced water chestnuts
3 stalks celery, diced
2 cups seedless grapes, cut in half
15 3/4 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained
5 1/2 oz. slivered almonds
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tsp. curry powder ( I used 1 tsp.)
Mix together well.
Mix all salad ingredients except almonds, fold in dressing. Refrigerate over night, just before serving mix in almonds, serve on lettuce leaf.
Have a great week

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
