Happy Chicken Salad Day
Started with Cupcake and Johnny C bringing me breakfast in bed; pancakes, bacon, strawberries, and coffee. They also gave me a birdhouse that Cupcake had designed, built, and painted in beautiful shades of red and purple, and a flowered roof.
The twins had to work. One of them gave me a dinner out with her. I'll take it when I can actually speak again. The other says her gift is a secret.
Later FINALLY made a kick-ASS chicken salad. First I started with chicken breast I had poached to perfection; cooked in a water bath full of carrot, celery leaves, green onions from the garden, garlic pepper, and sea salt. Then chopped, and stirred with pecans, red grape halves, more green onion, tarragon, garlic pepper, mayo and more sea salt. It's almost gone that's how good it is.
I must be getting better - I wish it were Saturday so I had another day to garden and cook.
And to love my family.
