Summer Chicken Salad & Simple Shred method!



I adore Chicken Salad in the summer! 

Something about sandwiches that just makes life simple. This chicken salad has been passed all over 

my family and tweaked over the years.

 I hope you can enjoy a sandwich this summer. 

Somewhere in the back corner of my mind, was this tip my Mom shared with me years ago and for 

some reason it came popping out, as I made my chicken salad.

You know after you cook chicken you have to stand with a fork and shred and shred, to try to get it 

small enough?


If you have a KitchenAid stand mixer just attach the paddle attachment 

and turn it on low for about 1 

minute and there you have it. 

Easy, simple and perfectly shredded chicken.

Boil in a water until cooked
                                     Remove chicken from water and place in mixer to shred chicken

                                                          Add salt & pepper to taste 
Dice celery into small little pieces 
Add Craisins( you know the salad toppers)

July 4th DIY



The old wall calendar says we are closing in on July and it is HOT!!

Our days are ticking away before it is back to school, 

and we are trying to enjoy those days,  the best we can in this heat.

I made this project last summer and I know you have all seen them around but, 

it's ok to bring something old, back again.

It is the simple pallet sign!


Find a pallet

buy a star stamp or hand  draw if you are that good( I am not)

Spray paint in Red, White and Blue and white paint for the stars and voila instant cute flag.

Happy July 4th!!

God Bless America
