Bill's Tossed Salad with Chicken

Every once in a while, Bill makes our favorite salad for lunch! This is a delicious crunchy fresh salad and he does it up perfectly.

I especially like the addition of peas and hard-boiled eggs.  To make it really easy, pick up a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store!  This is a good salad with a simple dressing!

Bill's Tossed Salad with Chicken


½ small head lettuce, torn
1 cup diced cooked chicken breast
1/3 cup frozen peas, thawed
½ small carrot, peeled and shredded
½ small white onion, chopped
1 hard boiled egg, chopped
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
Dash lemon zest
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and coarse ground pepper, to taste


Combine first seven ingredients in a large bowl.
Blend remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
Combine and toss.
2 servings

Have a great lunch today!

  4. That looks so good!! I wish my husband--or one of my daughters would fix a meal for us.

  5. Way to go Bill! This is a salad my family would love! Great blend of flavors and nice and crunchy. When a salad has cheese in it you know it's going to be yummy!

  6. Realmente deliciosa la receta. Saludos

  7. Hurray for Bill! It might be even better with some Spam. LOL

  8. This looks so very yummy! Have to try it. That's so sweet he makes lunch. My husband likes to cook Sunday dinners to give me a break from cooking all week. It's those little things that mean so much. Enjoy!

  9. kitchen flavours, it's a wonderful thing!

    Lyndsey, it is! Pretty simple and good!

    Sanyukta Gour(Bayes), I wish I could pass it on through to you! You'd love it!

    Sheila, it's just great and he does it every day.

    Linda, thanks! There's nothing like a salad made by Bill!

    Jennifurla, thanks! Have a good day!

    jose manuel, gracias! Me encanta este ensalada.

    StephenC, LOL!!!!! Oh, no! I'm hoping he doesn't see this as he'd probably do that the next time! Thanks for the suggestion (not)! ;)

    Jill, good for your hubby! And you're so right! Blessings to you.

  10. That looks great! I love a good salad!

  11. Wow, this looks so yummy!! I truly look forward to following! Thank you for sharing all these amazing dishes!!

    Have a lovely day,

  12. This sounds great. The perfect dish for lunch. I wish my husband would cook. I feel the same as you; lunch is not a meal I usually like to prepare. I just sort of pick at what ever is left over from the night before.

  13. Can Bill come over and make lunch for me? This looks and sounds delicious. I think it is great that you two eat such great lunches...I get stuck in a peanut butter and jelly rut! Thanks for sharing...and tell Bill, good job!

  14. Ok-crunchy peanut butter and mayo??? Never heard of it;) The salad sound very appetizing though!

  15. Let's hear it for Bill. That looks really good! Going to have to try it. (Love the Dijon mustard.)

  16. Hey : )

    I love your blog so I gave you an award

    Have a fab week : )

  17. Pegasuslegend, thanks, I am!

    Clements Family, I do also, especially when Bill makes it!

    All Good Things Organic, thank you so much! I'm so glad you stopped by. Have a wonderful day!

    Raina, you know what I mean then. Bill always manages to come up with something good every day!

    Monet, I'll have to ask him. He certainly knows how to do the job. Thanks and I will tell him!

    Holly, it's great! Easy too. Have a good day.

    Seedplanter Designs, thank you! About anything with Dijon works for me. Have a good day!

    The Secluded Tea Party, welcome! Thanks so much for the visit and I will be checking your blog out. That's very nice of you. Have a good day!

  18. I'd love it if Chris whipped this up in the kitchen for me...but alas, all I'd get from him would be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!! lol

  19. The salad looks really delicious and it's so nice that Bill likes to make lunch! Some women have all the luck!

  20. That looks and sounds good. I haven't made a chicken salad in a long time. I love to use the store bought roasted chickens for that and usually add pasta to mine. My DH makes his lunch every morning before he goes to work. At one time I thought that I would start making it for him, but then I came to my senses. Ha! Funny that you don't like to make lunches - I don't like to make breakfasts (unless there's company ;)

  21. I'd get scared if hubby tried to make lunch but it looks like yours did a great job. Good looking salad!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
