Here are the sugar cookies just waiting to be iced
After baking for most of the morning, it is always nice to stop for a bit to eat some lunch. Heidi made the most delicious chicken salad and served it on whole wheat bread. It was so good I just had to have the recipe. I thought I would share it with all of you.....
Chicken Apple Salad
1 13oz can of chicken--shredded
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and chopped to make 1 1/2 cups
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1/3 cup fat-free or light mayonnaise
1/3 cup fat-free or light sour cream
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
handful of chopped pecans--optional
Shred the chicken into a large bowl and add apple, cranberries, celery and pecans. In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Add sauce mixture to the chicken mixture. Serve on whole wheat bread. Enjoy!!!!!
It was sure nice to take time from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season to spend time with two people who are so special to me. Now I think I will go and have one of those yummy cookies with a nice warm cup of tea......

I hope you are somewhere sunny and warm, but if you live in a wintry state like me, take time to enjoy the snow----it can be quite beautiful. Have a wonderful Winter weekend where ever you live.

When I awoke yesterday morning the temperature had turned much colder and there was a light dusting of white snow on the ground. I wondered how my little rose had fared in the cold of the night. To my delight it was more beautiful than before. The snow had fallen and lay on the edges of it's petals. It was as though I had taken glitter and sprinkled it all over each petal.
I don't know if it was because Winter is just around the corner or that this would be the last rose blooming in my garden for this season but to me it was the most beautiful rose I had ever seen. I am so glad that in my busy life that I did not miss the chance to enjoy it's beauty.
