(Chris Sweda / Tribune)

O'Hare Airport.
4 am.

The Chicago Blackhawks and the Stanley Cup come home.

Way To Go!!!


Today is shopping, cleaning, errand day in preparation for the Workshop.

I will be making a delicious Chicken Salad.

Popeye's Honey Pecan Chicken Salad

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup relish
2 T. minced onion
1 T. honey
1 1/2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1/4 t. white pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup toasted pecans, chopped
1 1/2 pounds chopped cooked chicken (about 4 cups)

Combine the mayo, relish, onion, honey, sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Stir in celery and pecans. Fold in the chicken. Chill. Serve.

I like this on a bed of lettuce. You can serve it on buns also.
I use about 1/4 cup of relish.

It is the perfect chicken salad. Yum.

The recipe is from Longaberger's Fresh From the Pantry Recipes for Every Day


I will also be making this delicious salad.

I make this all the time.
It is in my "Ten Things I can cook" list.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad
This recipe is from the book Cooking from Quilt Country by Marcia Adams. I have altered her recipe by adding cauliflower for some variety.

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

1 bunch broccoli
1 head cauliflower
10 slices bacon
1/3 cup raisins
1 large red onion
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds

Chop up broccoli and cauliflower. (Eight cups all together.) Fry bacon and set aside. Chop onion. Combine broccoli, cauliflower, onion, raisins and bacon. Whisk together mayo, sugar, vinegar, and pepper.
Pour dressing over vegetables. Refrigerate. Top with sunflower seeds.

Hope you like it!


I once heard that you should have ten things you can cook really well.

Only ten.

When called upon to make something....

Make one of your ten things.

These are my ten things I can make without fail.

garlic bread
thanksgiving dinner
rice krispie treats/two kinds
carrot cake
chocolate sheet cake
broccoli/cauliflower salad
mandarin orange salad
chicken salad
Italian restaurant salad

There is no shame in bringing rice krispie treats
to an event.

No shame at all.

People love them ;o)

And if you saw my'd be happy for the rice krispie treats!


What's on your list?
