Chicken Salad starting with Leftovers and the Weekly Menu

 I'm not sure what happened but I missed posting my Weekly Menu last week.  Trust me when I tell you that we did eat.....and we ate well.  One of my favorite meals was this Hard Cider Glazed Rotisserie Chicken that I shared with you on Thursday.  I paired this meal with some Hard Ciders for our World Wine Travel group.  We are meeting for twitter chat today at 11 AM ET if you would like to join us.  You will find us by following #WorldWineTravel.

Chicken Salad

I took the leftover chicken off the bones and turned it into this wonderful chicken salad for lunch the next day.
We also enjoyed some Pork Satay last week as well as a smoked sausage and pierogi skillet that was absolutely delicious.  

The only excuse I have is that it was quite the busy week.  My master bath remodel is nearly done.  The vanity counter with sinks and the desk area granite were installed.  The closet is ready for clothes and shoes to be returned.  The tile guys returned and finished up the backsplash and shower sill.  The plumber will be here today to finish up his part and then we are good to go.

I will be putting everything away that has been piled into our Master bedroom. Then I am emptying all my furniture so my friend Tamie and I can update it with some fresh paint while Frank updates the floor, window and door moldings.  

So that should take up quite a bit of the week.  Tomorrow Amy, Doug, Jess, Julien and Melody are joining us for dinner.  Monday I have a meeting at church.  Wednesday is food pantry and it is also John's Birthday. We will be taking him down to Mexican Town to celebrate.  Thursday we are meeting Amy and Doug for dinner and line dancing.  

In the meantime we are still going to need te eat so here is this week's menu.  What's on your menu this week?

Before I leave you today, I want to share this chicken salad that you can make using any leftover chicken you might have in the refrigerator; or if you plan on picking up a rotisserie chicken for dinner during the week this will be a great recipe for you to serve as lunch afterwards.
