Spicy Noodle Salad

So much for my resolution to get back in my kitchen. In order for this to actually happen, I would have to be somewhat close to my kitchen, which has not been the case as of late. Traveling for work, vacation, and generally being busy, while all good problems to have, has made it difficult for me to get to my happy place. I have found a few moments here and there to start to some spring cleaning in my cabinets, and found some doozies (bulk items packaged over a year ago. Whoops.), which I promptly tossed out.

Hoping my outer wear would influence the temperature, which it didn’t, and I re-triggered my cold symptoms. Lucky for me, Susan and I had discussed making curry for our face off this week. A warm and spicy curry, filled with lots of veggies would be just the thing to make me feel better. That, and a Theraflu.

Chicken Salad Face Off

There is something comforting to me about a scoop of chicken salad between two halves of a croissant, in the middle of a tomato or on a bed of mixed greens. It brings back memories of eating lunch in a bustling diner while drinking ice tea and chatting with friends or family. Of course, I am a bit particular about my chicken salad… I don’t like my chicken salad too mayo-y, too watery or too dry. It has to be just right, and  making it at home is the way to ensure it turns out perfect. Read more
