Meal Plan Monday

It's Monday and I'm on Summer Vacation! Hopefully you are, too! If not, hang in there! The light at the end is coming closer.. do you see it??

I love summer. Plain and simple. I really do need this time to recharge and enjoy actually being a mommy and wife. Don't get me wrong-- I ENJOY being a wife and mommy during the school year but I really enjoy it MORE in the summer when I am not stressed out over:

grading papers
lesson plans
professional development
staff development
progress monitoring

This week I am linking up with my sweet friend, Tammy from The Resourceful Apple and her Meal Plan Linky! What a great idea!!! One thing I have always enjoyed is meal planning and cooking! If you follow me, especially my Kitchen Recipes Board and the Teacher Foodies Board, you will see I love to cook! I really do. I know most people find it a chore and a bore but I find joy and peace cooking. I love finding new ingredients and trying new recipes. So here I am to share in a new recipe I found while pinning away! A wonderful, low-fattish (not a word but it's my word) and delicious chicken salad recipe! I have eaten it for 3 days now (for lunch).  It's that good, people! 

You can download the original recipe {HERE}. 

I tweaked mine a bit. I used pecans instead of walnuts. I also used already cooked rotisserie chicken because I didn't have enough time to cook the chicken myself so mine had a mixture of white and dark meat. Still came out just as tasty and it was a bit quicker! Just a little tip if you are in a bit of a hurry or want something quick! 

I hope that you will join in on this fun linky or her Facebook page to share in some great meal planning ideas! I know I shared a great recipe for a fabulous s'mores dip that was GONE! 

Happy Eating!!

  2. I love chicken salad! And I also use rotisserie chicken, it makes it so moist! Great lunch during summer!

    Great idea!
