Chicken Salad

This is a post I wrote last week and forgot.

I love chicken salad so when Marlene from Country Girl on the Chesapeake Bay wrote this post on chicken salad I had to try it.

I made it yesterday morning , my only substitution was sunflower seeds. Then I proceeded with everything else. I put it in the refrigerator so it could finish chilling and so the flavors would come together. I could hardly wait, so about an hour later I pulled it out and got some whole wheat grain bread (sorry Marlene) and made me a sandwich. As I was eating I was thinking, this is some GOOD shit chicken salad. The more I ate the more I was loving it. I finished my sandwich and within an hour I made another one...hehe
The girls wanted it for there lunch and I made them take their processed deli turkey because if they took it that would be that much less left and I am not sharing the chicken salad. You can say I am bad if you want but it will not change my attitude about MY chicken salad.
So the point of the post: Thank you Marlene, that is some GREAT chicken salad and now I am known as a Selfish mother..hehe

BTW I am in 1st out of 106 in the brackets. YAY for me!! That will change considerably this week unless Louisville loses.

Tournament Begins

It's Thursday and that means the start of the NCAA tournament begins. I am anxious to see how well I do with my bracket picks. I am really second guessing my Final pick but Cookie told me not to change it and if I learned anything in school it's DON'T CHANGE YOUR ANSWER. Besides, I really have no clue, the tournament and an occasional Purdue game are the extent of my love for BB. So at 12:25 today I will plop myself down in front of the TV and hope for the best.

On another note: I remember as a kid having Bugles and putting them on my fingers as fingernails so I bought some the other day and started to show Peepers what to do with them. Between then and now my fingers no longer fit in the opening of the Bugles and the opening is so small that you have to dig for a good one to fit her fingers. What happened? That was the fun of having Bugles. They still taste good but a lot saltier than I remembered.

I know some people get sick of kid stories but I just love what comes out of a child's mouth because they speak without thinking anything about what they say.

Peepers and I were on our way to one of our favorite stores yesterday when she yelled from the back seat, 'Look Mommy there's daddy's truck.' I said what, daddy's @ work, remember we just talked to him. Her reply, No, look it's daddy's beer truck, that's daddy's truck!! LOOK! As I look at the truck going through the intersection this is what I see.I thought, 'He Only Wishes that was his.'

Once we arrived to Tar-jay and walking around doing some shopping there was a mother and her children by the milk and ice cream the kids were asking for Ice cream and talking somewhat loudly. Peepers was on the other side of the cart so she couldn't see them but the mother could hear her when she announced, ' Mommy I hear the Chipmunks.'I again respond with a 'WHAT? She tells me she hears The Chipmunks, do you hear them mom? I turn to look at something and by golly that ladies children DO sound like The Chipmunks. Being the wonderful mom I am, as I am laughing I explain to her that those are the children talking and we need to be quiet.

I have messed up. I went and changed my template and now I have to go in and fix a lot of stuff. This has already taken more time than anticipated and it is too nice a day to be doing this so for the time being I am under construction. I have already listened to the whole Elton John CD and I am not finished yet. I even lost my navi bar to make posting easier so I had to go a round-about way to get here. I'll hopefully have this fixed before spring break is over.

Gonna go clean my car out today. Kids are fighting the blankets and bags for places to put their feet and Cookie changed my tire when I got a flat, do you think anything was put back into place? If you guessed NO you are right. I cannot put groceries in my trunk which makes seating tricky with no floor room or trunk room. It's time to clean it out.

Finally some pics

Okay, sorry this has taken so long. Our plane touched down back into Indy and the cold I get every time kicked in and has kicked my ass.

As not to be disappointed, we arrived at the Keepers and she offered Cookie a beer and had the margarita machine ready. Why yes, I would love a margarita!! As we drank we were trying to decide where to go because of course I was hungry. We ended up going to Fish Tales because I could get the best of both, crab legs and margaritas..Yum-my!!

I think she may be trying to hurry that drink...she was busy running her mouth and didn't realize I had ordered myself another one.My crab legs and margarita. Looking at the picture that margarita sure looks GOOD.

After we left there we went to Sneakers. This is a bar that reminds me of my digs here at home.
We decided to play a bowling game as we drank our alcohol.

Look at that form. You've got to get the foot kick in the action too.

The Keeper and Cookie.

A Royal Butt was needed to cheer the occasion. We couldn't get the other two to participate in shots. Wimps!!!The Keeper apparently took the camera and captured Bud Man and herself:)
Not sure what kind of face she was trying to make.

Problems with the pants? Don't want anything messing up her shot.

Cookie all serious.
Don't they look enthused? Cookie HATES to have his picture taken.

Bud Man is up.

After we left the bar, as if we didn't have enough of the sports, we went home made some more beverages and played the Wii. We had a Blast.

Cookie and I will finally be breaking down and getting ourselves one of these.
I woke up feeling like SHIT!!! Didn't drink that heavily the rest of the time. (I have been a bit out of practice due to school)
This was our first night. I used a disposable camera at the beach so I have to get my ass up to take it in. It was suppose to be Cookies 'Hot Chick Camera' but I ended up using it because he wasn't and I really didn't want to take my good one to the beach.

Hopefully lots of pictures will be taken that we can share.

I have become overwhelmed. I am packed and ready to go on vacation but that is about as far as I have gotten.
I have two big tests tomorrow I should be studying for right now instead of posting but I cannot get into it.
I should be cleaning, I need to scrub the floors, sweep and change our sheets (I always have to have clean sheets when I return from vacation).
I have to type up Temp Guardian papers for the Mouse
I need to pack our carry-ons and make sure I have tickets and confirmations we need
I could list several more things but these are the ones that keep popping to me.

Oh well, I will be in Florida with the Keeper this time on Thursday (most likely having an alcoholic beverage:) ) and my house will still be a mess when I get home.
