I could eat a whole bowl!
But before I talk about this totally yummy,
I must ask a very,
Do you think my light is ugly?
"Mother Theresa") said my light was ugly.
but she did point to it on the wall and asked why I took it with us when we moved into the new house.
Sounds like she was calling it ugly to me.
I don't think my light is ugly.
Dirty? yyyyyes. I suppose. Depends on your definition of "dirty."
No, don't be honest, I was just making conversation.
bread wrapper tie that my Ma finds so offensive.t....
Maybe my Ma thinks the red jeweled keychain randomly attached, is tacky?
Maybe horses with wings creep her out?
Or maybe she thinks the white clover sticker looks weird?
Or the sparkly birdie over on the left should fly away?
She actually pointed to Old Dusty Birdie and asked all hoity-like, "And who put THAT on there?"
Yeah, right. Like the average person wouldn't want a dirty, greasy, fake bird in their house.
Anyway, I think secretly my mom wants this light and is playing a mind game with me,
hoping I will ultimately give it to her.
I am keeping this light for myself.
I do plan on hooking up a big flashing neon light to it that flashes
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

for this Healthy Avocado Chicken Salad recipe!
This is my favorite brand of chicken, beef and vegetable stock.
After the chicken is boiled,
shred it up.
Add in the mayo and yogurt.
JUST yogurt only and skip the mayo.
I think Ima do that next time.!
By the way, I tripled the recipe.
Now here's where I didn't know if I should chop up the avocado and slowly fold it into the chicken mixture or just
SHMUSH everything together.
I just shmushed everything together.
Seemed like the easier thing to do.
Add in the salt, pepper
and garlic powder....
Don't forget the cilantro.
BUT several people commented that they added those items into the dish
and it was delish.
to add the lime juice into the dish too!
It's hard to cook and talk at the same time, sometimes!
Oops, sorry Jenn :)
And that's it!
Look at this creamy, tasty result!
Or definitely some whole wheat crackers!!!
LOVED this chicken salad.
Sweetness liked the orange bell pepper and said she could still the taste the chicken, she said the other ingredients did not overwhelm the chicken taste.
I loved it because it's so creamy and that avocado gives it an unexpected taste twist to the normal chicken salad.
I would and will definitely make this again, maybe even bring it as an appetizer with crackers to a party.
Here's the recipe in document form.
I guess you can click on the big document or the little tiny gray download file thingie and print from there.
OH OH! I want to share a picture of one of
Tim's vintage race track sets from c1970!!
Tim is showing Little Boy Blue and LBB's mom and dad how kids USED TO PLAY back in the day, before the com-pu-ters.
Shockingly, the little slot cars still work, too!!!
I think Tim was the most shocked by that :)
Okay, tis all I got for today.! Everyone have a good weekend
and we'll talk at ya soon!!!!
