Hey friends! I sure hope you are doing great!
It feels like fall here in Louisiana, finally…so
we enjoyed roasting marshmallows around a bonfire today :)
I thought, just for fun, I would share my burlap sink skirt with you.
It’s just a coffee bean burlap sack cut to fit over
If you have been around awhile, you may remember
I was using an antique grainsack as the sink skirt…
however, for Fall I wanted a little warmer look.
So, I put the burlap skirt back on.
And because I love changing things often, having the
cabinet left open under our sink gives me several options.
I just have a simple spring-rod in place…and I can
switch out different fabrics for different seasons.
Can you believe our basil is still growing strong in our garden?
I like keeping some near the sink for salads and cooking.
Not to mention the aroma :)
This is how our kitchen looks most of the time, if
I’m not cooking a meal. Just plain and simple.
Speaking of cooking…
I made up my own chicken salad recipe!
Can you believe it? I can’t either.
I am calling it my “Rustic Chicken Salad”
(I don’t why, I just like the word rustic :)
Here’s the recipe, in case you want to try it:
6 organic chicken breast fillets, boiled & shredded
2 hard boiled fresh chicken eggs, boiled & chopped
2 small dill pickles, chopped
2 sweet baby whole pickles, chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped
3 slices peppered-bacon, fried crispy & chopped
8-10 black seedless grapes, chopped
1/2 cup or more mayo
2 or 3 tablespoons spicy mustard
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy on wheat bread,
with chips & crackers, or on a bed of greens.
I added fresh baby spinach & tomato to my sandwich.
(You could add or delete whatever you choose to
make this recipe your own)
Celery, pears, apples…but of course,
I think the bacon made this delicious :)
