Steaming Chicken

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.

Happy Sunday!

Sounds yummy and much better than the crockpot chicken dinner that I ruined by using the wrong kind of vinegar. Oh well, there is always next week.

Happy and healthy pregnancy to you!
