Well, I had a super insightful, highly provocative post thought out today. It was basically going to answer every question you've ever had about life.
Sadly, school started today and I'm too busy to post it.
So, instead, I have something that is almost as good. I am serious.
I like to eat. That would surprise you if you saw me because usually people with a physique like mine are either special operations soldiers or professional body builders.
But anyway--I like to eat, and one of my favorite things to eat is a particular kind of chicken salad.
I make this every year for Meredith on Mother's Day and make lots of extra so I can take it to work for lunch the next week. I never get tired of it.
This recipe is seriously amazing. It tastes great, and is actually quite healthy. It is also easy to make, although it's a bit on the time-consuming side to chop all the stuff that goes in the salad.
At any rate, without further ado, here is Sister Atwood's Chicken Salad Recipe. You will seriously thank me.
1 16 ox medium shells cooked drained and cooled
3 chicken breasts cooked and diced
1 ½ cups of bottled coleslaw dressing
1/3 cup of mayo
1 apple diced
red and green grapes—lg. bunch rinsed and halved
1 small green pepper diced
1 small red pepper diced
1 small can water chestnuts drained and cut up
1 lg. can of drained mandarin oranges
salt and pepper to taste
Boil the chicken and cut/shred/slice and set aside to cool.
Drain the oranges, water chestnuts. (I do this the night before)
Slice the graps, apples, peppers, etc. (I do this the night before, too. It makes it much easier)
Put it all in a big bowl and stir in the mayo and coleslaw dressing.
