Fruit and Curry Chicken Salad

DailyPost Prompt – Snack

When I contemplate summer meals, this recipe has been a favorite for years!  I rarely follow a recipe, so if it actually ends up written down on paper, I know it is here to stay for all of eternity!  The Fruit and Curry Chicken Salad is a light, refreshing meal or snack filled with flavor!  And, as long as your chicken is already cooked, you don’t even have to turn on the oven! Now that is a summer bonus! Continue reading “Fruit and Curry Chicken Salad”

Weekend Adventures

What a beautiful and productive weekend at Indigo Acres!  After I cross off items on our “Adventure List” (aka, To-Do-List), it is always so nice to step back and take in everything that was accomplished.  What a wonderful feeling the sense of accomplishment brings!   And, that crazy productivity seems to continue to follow me yet today!  Before noon, I completed barn chores, groomed Ophe, (the 130lb Newfie https://growingself.blog/2017/04/25/our-gentle-giant/) and trimmed the hooves of four goats.  What does this really mean?  I wrestled with five 100lb+ beasts and WON!
