Easy chicken salad a helpful recipe to avoid cooking on hot summer days

Summer meals are difficult to plan for sometimes. Longer days make for longer working hours in some households. In ours, the days always are long. Let’s face it — no one wants to turn on the stove or the oven when temperatures reach the upper 90s. This chicken salad can be made using rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, eliminating the need to cook any part of the meal. This recipe is one that came to my family in recent years, but it is one of my mother’s favorites. Chicken salad assembly De-bone and chop all of the meat from a rotisserie chicken. Put this in a large mixing bowl and set it aside. Peel the fibers from four celery stalks and dice the celery to 1/4-inch chunks. Add the celery to the large mixing bowl. Dice a small jar of pimentos and add to the bowl. Add 3/4 cup mayonnaise to the bowl, as well as 1 tablespoon of Cavender’s Greek All-Purpose Seasoning. Mix well and refrigerate. This salad can be served on crackers or as a sandwich. It also pairs well with sliced tomato and feta cheese.

12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep kicks off wonderful new series

When Clara Chapman receives an intriguing invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home, she is hesitant yet compelled to attend — for if she remains the duration of the 12-day celebration, she is promised a sum of 1,000 pounds. That’s enough money to bring her brother back from America and reinstate their stolen family fortune. But is she walking into danger? It appears so, especially when she comes face to face with one of the other guests — her former fiancé, Benjamin Lane. Imprisoned unjustly, Ben wants revenge on whoever stole his honor. When he’s given the chance to gain his freedom, he jumps at it — and is faced with the anger of the woman he stood up at the altar. Brought together under mysterious circumstances for the Twelve Days of Christmas, Clara and Ben discover that what they’ve been striving for isn’t what ultimately matters. What matters most is what Christmas is all about … love. It’s been a little too warm in Kansas for my taste lately, so I was extremely excited when 12 Days at Bleakly Manor arrived at my house. The first in Michelle Griep’s Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series, Bleakly Manor introduces us to a memorable cast of characters. The main characters of Clara and Ben were compelling. I really wanted to find out what was going to happen to...
