Recipes- For Ash!

Ashley requested that I give this recipe, and Whitney expressed interest, so here they are in plain view for all to see.

Curried Chicken Salad
(Tammy Daacke)
3 C. Chopped Cooked Chicken
1 15 and 1/4 oz can pineapple chunks drained
1/4 C. and 2 T flaked coconut
2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 C mayonaise

Mix all together and chill for 2 hours. Before serving, add 1 banana sliced, then garnish 1 11 oz can mandarin oranges drained, and 2 T flaked coconut toasted.

--->> My mom's adjustments for this is:
Use Tyson chicken (faster option) breasts, add celery, green onion, papaya, grapes, and banana (or whatever fruit you will). Then top with toasted almonds just before serving!

Another one Ash wanted a while ago was this one below... it is really good, and really garlicy! It keeps well in the fridge.

Garlic Olive Spread

2 cans chopped olives
1 C. fresh grated parmesean cheese
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. worchester sauce
4 or 5 cloves garlic crushed
enough olive oil to make spreadable

toasted pita strips make a nice dipable food! :) You can take pitas, wipe them with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and then sprinkle crushed oregano on them- toast at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes and you have some super good toasty pita pieces!

Ok... that is all! If you have a good recipe you'd like to share, post it in the comments, and if I get enough I'll make another post with them!

Get cookin!
