I hope my readers out there remember that Sunday is my favorite day. I also love to cook, and to me there is nothing better than cooking with the windows open on a Sunday at home! Husband is working in the yard and I am cooking away. I even made him lemonade and brought it out to him while he was working. Very cute!
I love spring cooking. I say this every year. According to my husband I say that I love winter cooking at the start of winter as well. I think it is something about the changing of the seasons that invigorates my senses.
Today I am steaming so chicken to put into chicken salad. I have never steamed chicken before. I have also never made chicken salad from scratch either. I am making it to pack in my lunch. Anyone who has been pregnant knows the joys of retaining water. I figured out really early with a can of tomato soup that I could go up 3 or 4 pounds in a day. This feels just like it sounds...not good. Why can't my tongue retain some water? So with all the sodium in canned chicken, I figured it is just better to start from scratch and make my own. I am sure it is much better too!
For dinner, I am making salmon wrapped in phyllo (sp?) dough with spices and asparagus in the middle of the wrap. Tasty stuff. And lots of healthiness as well.
