The Mom's Chicken Salad

So I just made The Mom's chicken salad recipe for Davy and he loved it :) The only suggestion I as given was to toast the bread more and add a bit more mayo. I know it will never be as yummy as if made by his mommy, but at least it is a close second! Thank you for sharing :)

Nothing too new here just trying to keep cool. Thankfully we live off base and have an ac unit! I just joined a book club (first time) which should be quite fun. I'm happy with most of the books picked. Also no word on my job status yet. My contract will be renewed, but just not sure if that is the place to stay. So prayers for guidance!

David is going back to school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is planning on getting a B.S. of Computer Science. Soo excited :)

Miss you all and hope all is well xoxoxoxoxox

Hot day in the Neighborhood !

No pictures , sorry, It has been a hot day. In the upper 90's. Gracie and Vala did nothing all day . When we watered the garden, Gracie acted like a fool and got overheated. Now she is miserable .. I hope we get a breather from the heat. Hondo is throwing at Grandfather mt. on Fri and we are all going. It will be fun!!Merry and Jay, Some friends from WV. Dad, Anna and Me. I think his Mom will be there also.. . I will take some pix and post. I picked , Dad helped, a big mess of green beans, peppers, and 2 buckets of tomatoes. I think I will turn into a tommy tomato, I eat 2 or 3 every time I pass the kitchen. I am almost finished with a sweater I have been working on . almost finished with the pink shrug, and all I have to do to the blanket that I had laying beside the couch for so long ,is to weave in the ends. Just too hot to have that thing on my lap. Have been going to the Ywca too! I have moved up the weight to 20,30 and one 40 lb. the only one I still do 15lb on is the arm curls. They are awful. I cuss that machine every time. I do 4 sets of 4 links in the pool and walk a link in between each set. It takes about 20 min for that. But I never thought I could do any of the above. I have been doing it for 8 weeks at the most. Still look the same, and still have chicken fat arms. But feel sooooooo goood. Love to all xxoo ps I hate crunches too.

Also, I wanted to share that the delicious sauce that Laurel Gray makes is really good as a dipping sause. Though, I did try another thing and wanted to share. Make a hamburger and top it with goat cheese and avocado then spread a little of the Laurel Gray dressing on the bun = super yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!
