The "I Can't Wait For Spring" Supper...


Winter just won't let go this year! Craving something light, and to remind us that warmer days are coming- I made a batch of chicken salad, placed in a muskmelon for supper... Cooked chicken breast-cubed, a couple of hard boiled eggs-chopped, chopped celery and onions, mayo, mustard, and lemon pepper- all mixed thoroughly and chilled. Melon cleaned, cut in half- ready for salad...Simple but refreshing!
I also jumped on the banana wagon we all seem to be on, and made a straight banana bread-moist and rich.. I nice addition to the light meal. There is only two of us- kids are grown and gone...I look forward to an opportunity to cook a big meal- Easter is coming!

Sornie said...

Sure, there you are using your grill and we're enduring chilly rain with snow an hour away.

Mona said...

that sounds like a good meal :) I had melon dew for breakfast today!

Did you people get a chance to visit your son who escaped an accident near christmas time ?

Kate- I know you've got it worse, but still...
Sornie- Haven't grilled out yet!
Mona- Haven't seen him yet, but talk to him weekly..

I love melon but I'm on the GI diet and melon isn't good. Chicken however is very good! :)

K said...

Chicken salad in melon - sounds wonderful.

I can't wait for spring either. Mother nature just keeps teasing us here.

Ake- I'm on the seafood diet- I see it, I eat it!
K- This is a refreshing change- can be done with tuna, chicken, even ham and cheese..

Jeanne said...

Very nice and spring-y! You're right about the bananas -- I made "chunky monkey" cookies over the weekend -- start out with banana nut muffin mix and add fresh banana and chocolate chunks. Dee-lish!

Vodka Mom said...

That looks really incredible! I love all kinds of melon!!!

Dana said...

Buff, that chicken salad looks perfect!

G-Man said...

Strait banana bread?
That means no nuts?

buffalodick said...

Jeanne- Cookie sounds great!
VodkaM- Any melon works, but my wife prefers muskmelon...
Dana-Thanks! Simple stuff, but we like it..
G-man- Yep!

Belle said...

Everyone is making banana bread. It was Christo who started the revolution! I made a loaf on Sunday. It was finished before it had cooled!

buffalodick said...

Belle- The foodies that visit all seem to give each other ideas!

TavoLini said...

Looks like a good dinner!

I hear you about spring--I'm in Georgia, and its been in the 30's a few times in the last week. sigh!

buffalodick said...

T.L.- It's been a winter to remember- for all the wrong reasons!

Chef E said...

This is just the kind of meal I wished I had right now...Spring is playing hide and go seek with us all over...fooling the buds too!

I woke up not feeling good on my first day of culinary class :(, how about some chicken soup for this girl...on the menu soon?

buffalodick said...

ChefE- Thinking more about onion soup today- but maybe not... I have the attention span of a ferret...

doggybloggy said...

seems our attention spans are hanging out together....the melon salad looks great and your bread is perfect.

pinknest said...

Ooh! I've been eating banana nut bread in the last few days. Sadly, I didn't make it. But I don't care.

buffalodick said...

DogB- I think we all inspire each other- and we all are getting better for it!
Donna- Same as what I said to Dog- we give each other ideas- and we're all getting better for it!
Pink- Good food is where you find it.. some nights you cook it, some nights you go looking for it!

Sbender- You are fairly new to this blog, but I grill, smoke, and compete in contests.. I can't wait for summer!

Just telling it like it is said...

Darn those kids growing up what's wrong with them...
I would have never thought of melon and chicken salad refreshing indeed.

buffalodick said...

I have no grandchildren- my kids have told me I won't- until I grow up...I could teach that kid so much!
