girlie lunches.

if i were to ask you what the number one staple at a 'woman's lunch' was i wonder if you would answer 'chicken salad.'  i would.  when my husband thinks of 'chick-y food' {as he likes to call it} that'd be listed number one if not top five.  i was supposed to be headed to 'one of those lunches' a few weeks back and i volunteered to bring it.  i vaguely knew my mom's recipe but again googled it... to fill in the holes that my forgetfulness vacated.

so i found this recipe and devoured two whole sandwiches by four p.m. that day.  it was that good.  just so you know, that's not a normal consumption mode for this lady but sometimes you just can't stop thinking about what you had for lunch... {am i right or am i right?}

so if you don't have your 'staple' chicken salad recipe, i'd love to pass this one on to you because it was just delicious.  {i prefer served with croissants}
