Monday - Spring Break

I woke up today to a loud thunder storm.  It was wonderful.  Morning coffee is always better with a good storm outside.  It's something I miss - we don't get many of them here in West Texas....

I had a friend coming over to craft.  You know, for me that is an excuse to cook a little something.
Todays menu was Hot Chicken Salad, Oriental Cole Slaw and Apple dump cake.

Hot Chicken Salad

3 Cups Cooked chicken, cubed
3 Cups chopped celery
3 cups croutons
2 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 1/4 cups toasted sliced almonds
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp dried minced onion
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 cups cubed cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients together and bake in a 13x9 pan at 350 till cheese is melted.

It was very good.  I've been picking at the hot chicken salad all day!

A little after lunch, we  realized it wasn't just raining outside, it was snowing also.  Big, huge snow flakes for an hour or two mixed with the rain.  Crazy spring break weather!!!
