Chicken Salad and TB Soup

Last week while I was in Texas I had a most amazing tomato basil soup. This got me inspired and I decided to try to make my own version on Sunday.

But, I couldn’t just have Tomato Basil soup, so I talked to my mom and the two of us found a great recipe for Apricot Almond Chicken Salad.

This lunch was A+
I highly recommend it.

The tomatoes were for the soup, the rest, the salad

The soup came from this recipe. I did add the full portions of cream and butter and it actually did make a difference. I was hoping to be able to get away with half the butter and 3/4 of the cream. No dice.

The chicken salad recipe was excellent, healthy, and extremely easy.

Dried Apricots
Toasted Almonds
Cooked Diced Chicken
Some light mayo mixed with nonfat milk

And that’s it! Blend it, chill it, and serve on a bed of lettuce with fresh grapes, or on a slab of wheat bread. Either way, it’s amazing.

Three cheers for apricot!

    When I saw the title, all I could think was “Why would anybody want a tuberculosis soup?”

    So… I want to listen to something on my iPod, but I don’t know what. I’ll listen to whatever you suggest, provided that I have it.

    I don’t have that. But I do have one Beyoncé (alt-130, baby!) tune that is reasonably close (“Crazy In Love”). Incidentally, I got this track from one of my blog readers Anthony, who sent me a mixed disc in the mail about a year ago.

    Beyoncé has 2 minutes left, any other suggestions?

    Don’t have ‘mic check’, but you did mention Christmas, so I’ll hit up the Sufjan Stevens Christmas boxed set until the next suggestion.
