Chicken Salad Sandwiches with a Hint of Lime

Chicken Salad Sandwiches.  It’s time for light lunches and nicer weather.
Winter has held on far too long this year.

We served these on mini-croissants at a Women’s Conference at our church recently.  About 150 women attended.  We had a great time together and enjoyed munching on these lovely sandwiches.

These are easy to put together and look so nice.  My boys like them made on Hawaiian rolls too.  The recipe makes 5 cups of chicken salad.  The size of roll you serve it on with determine how many servings you will get.

School Lunches

I make my kids lunch every day. Three lunches for hungry teenagers can be a bit of a challenge. In addition, I have one child who leaves the house at 6:00 am. I’m half asleep when I’m packing lunches. I’ve found a few items that have helped make the process easier and more ful”filling” for my kids. To start with I have found the perfect lunch boxes.

Caramel Banana Muffins

This is one of my go-to recipes whenever I have bananas that are at the overripe stage.   They are easy to make and freeze well after the icing has set.  I like to wrap them individually and then store them in a gallon size freezer bag.  When the kids pack their lunches, they just pull one out of the freezer.  They defrost by lunch time.  I love the glaze, so I usually double it when I make muffins.  You can double the recipe and bake it in a large jelly roll pan.  I have taken these lovely muffins to many gatherings and received rave reviews each time. I’ve even tried them with 1/2 wheat flour. Either way they are delicious! Continue reading »
