Recipe Box Swap-Lunch

It's the first of the month and that mean Recipe Box Swap time at I Have to Say. October's monthly them is lunch, and one of my favorite lunch time treats, is chicken salad. I love a mean chicken salad sandwich(Chick Fil-a and my friend Lisa kick butt in the sandwich dept.) but this is the recipe with noodles and fruit. Feel free to add curry if you're feeling spicy that day. I love, love, love this recipe. It's even great if you cheat and buy one of the rotisserie chickens. Enjoy!

Chicken Salad

5 chicken breast, cooked and diced
3 c celery, diced small
3 c green/red grapes, halved
3 c mandarin oranges
3 c pineapple tidbits
1 12oz pkg small shell macaroni

Combine salad ingredients and chill in refrigerator for several hours.

Dressing: 1 ½ c mayo
1 ½ c sour cream
6 T dried parsley
6 T green onion, chopped
3 T lemon juice
1 1/2 t salt
1 ½ t pepper
Mix dressing ingredients and chill. Pour salad and mix well.

But if we're talking lunch, ladies, I have to plug our favorite lunchtime treat Muffin Tin Monday. Every Monday this blog hosts the Muffin Tin Mommas. I have a blast coming up with creative ways to feeds the monkeys in my zoo. This lunch was shape themed. Fun, huh?

Im going to have to try this out. Cayla is starting to get picky about food. Maybe the Muffing Tin will help her. Miss you guys.BTW our primary class is doing 100% better since we took over. Kind of funny but they say they like us anyway.

Chicken salad is one of my absolute favorites, and this is one I have to try. The dressing sounds really good.

I'm all over that muffin tin idea. I'm going to copy that one like crazy! :) Thanks for sharing.

You have a very beautiful family. Love the picture in the tree.
