Chicken salad. I haven’t made that in years! This morning I made it with the rotisserie chicken I made a few nights ago. I added apples, grapes, toasted walnuts, salt and pepper, and red chili flakes to offset the sweet fruit. Oh, and mayonnaise, of course. It turned out to be really good! I wasContinue reading “Chicken Salad – Snapshot of the Day, No. 349”
Baby, it’s cold outside! This scene on my way home seemed to convey the arctic temperature we’ve been experiencing lately. It got down to 5 degrees last night here. That’s pretty cold for the South.
There is a certain fascination with me to enter a bathroom for the first time – especially if it is in an establishment that is unique or artistic. I just never know what kind of inspiration I’m going to find. Case in point at lunch today. Several of my co-workers and I met at Champy’sContinue reading “For the Record – Snapshot of the Day, No. 347”
We have been informed we will be getting 1/4 of an inch of snow tonight. Translation: We’re all going to starve to death until tomorrow when it melts.
Thank Heavens we decided to split the sandwich. I couldn’t even get my mouth around this thing. This is the half we did not eat. We ordered it while in The Soda Shop if you’re interested.
Joe and I went to The National WWII Museum while visiting New Orleans. We had been before on our honeymoon, but now it’s bigger than ever. If you ever get a chance to go, please don’t leave town without visiting this museum. We’ve been twice, and still have not seen everything. And the Pacific wingContinue reading “Greatest Generation – Snapshot of the Day, No. 343”
I love New Orleans. This restaurant is in the French Quarter, but I can’t quite make out the name. Sorry. We stay away from Bourbon Street and preferring the quieter areas. It rained most of our time there, but that just made things more cosy.
Since Alabama was in the Sugar Bowl this year (football to those who don’t follow college sports) Joe and I went to New Orleans to watch the game. It just happened to coincide with New Year’s Eve in the French Quarter. One of the best New Year’s Eve’s I’ve ever experienced. We just happened toContinue reading “New Year in New Orleans – Snapshot of the Day, No. 341”
This is the charm from the bracelet Joe gave me for Christmas. He got it at my favorite store, Blue Skies. The little blue bird inside reminds me of my mother. She used to call me her “little blue bird” since I was always wanting to fly the coop and see the world.
I got a new cookbook for Christmas: “It’s All Good,” by Gwyneth Paltrow. Due to some health issues, including migraines, she developed recipes to help eliminate her medical problems. Hmm. Migraines. Why not? For a few weeks, at least, I plan on gearing my diet as closely to hers as I can reasonably manage. NoContinue reading “One Tablespoon – Snapshot of the Day, No. 338”
