ALL OVER AGAIN
BREAKFAST ROOM RETURNED TO NORMAL
CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD
I USED CHICKEN TENDERS, BECAUSE THAT WAS WHAT I HAD ON HAND; BROWNED THEM IN A LITTLE OLIVE OIL THEN FINISHED COOKING COVERED ON LOW HEAT.
GRILLED, ROASTED, OR STEWED CHICKEN CAN ALSO BE USED.
1~8 OUNCE CAN WATER CHESTNUTS (SLICED), DRAINED
1 3/4 CUP HALVED SEEDLESS RED GRAPES
1~11 OUNCE CAN MANDARIN ORANGES, DRAINED
1 CUP CHOPPED CELERY
MIX AND CHILL
3/4 CUP LIGHT MIRACLE WHIP
1/2 TEASPOON CURRY POWDER
2 TEASPOONS LEMON JUICE
2 TEASPOONS SOY SAUCE
ADD TO CHILLED SALAD AND RETURN TO REFRIGERATOR UNTIL READY TO SERVE
THANKS TO MY FRIEND JOANN, FOR THIS WONDERFUL RECIPE.
Most of the images for this post are from May 2011. Almost a year ago.
I enjoyed putting this table together and decided it would be a great post to repeat for Let’s Dish.
The photo below has nothing to do with dishes or food. It has everything to do with the kitchen/breakfast room/hearth room, which does have something to do with dishes or food.
I believe it qualifies for Let’s Dish, etc.
MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH…
SOMETHING FOR WHAT’S IT WEDNESDAY
I am a tad busy with a plan and furniture moving that involves the objects in this photo.
Purchases from The Barn, in Troy MO, include a salt glaze crock, with lid, from Rowe, to add to my collection. A nifty brass lamp and the chair.
The first thing I noticed upon entering the shop (first time visit this week) was the lamp. With no hesitation I declared my desire to purchase. Walking through the two room store, I found so many wonderful things I cannot count them all. I found the crock in the second room.
I wandered around, all the while glancing back at the chair. I sat in the chair, asked J to sit in the chair and give his critique. Then I sat in the chair again. I think it might be from the 1960’s and reminds me of Ethan Allen, although I am not sure the maker, as there is newer upholstery with all labels missing.
I sit in the chair this morning, at my desk, composing this Look Back~Look Forward post. What can I say; I have fallen in love with a chair!
The new plan and furniture moving will begin in the hearth room/breakfast room soon. I’ll let you know more as the story continues.
