‘Tis the last day of 2013, and while I considered doing a “best of” post (fun reads), I decided to sum up the year in Chicken Salad.
Many days were flavorful (think toasted pine nuts, scallions, red Anjou pears, and Bleu Cheese, with shredded roast chicken nestled on a heart of Romaine and drizzled with Balsamic vinaigrette), while others were the monochromatic amalgam of daily living — your basic “chicken, mayo, and onion” version. Both satisfied and both had their merits.
Then there were jewel-like days when life was flat-out a party.
(This was a “thrown together” salad with Honey-Dijon-Lemon-Mayo — sorry, no recipe…)
Some days are like that.
I’m also old enough to realize that not every day will be brilliant and not every day will be bland, but circumstances can’t prevent you from celebrating life… your life!
At 12:01 a.m., we’ll all be handed an empty plate. What will you fill it with?
And, which food best describes your year in review?
Enjoying chicken salad perspectives,
P.S. Happy New Year!!!
