Baseball, Golf, and Chicken Salad

I felt like I should update my blog today since it's been about a week since I wrote the last entry. There's nothing extremely special or out of the ordinary for me to share, so I thought I'd just fill you in on the little details of our week.

Brian is pitching great! His ERA is 1.00! He's pitched the last 3 games in a row, so his arm is tired. The pitching coach is hoping he can throw another inning today, but I'm not sure that would be wise. I think a little recovery time is needed.

We have an off day on Thursday, and like every off day, Brian wants to play golf. I can't blame him since the Redhawks players and wives are allowed to play for free at two of the local courses. Golf is not my favorite activity, but my game is getting better, I think. I still swing and miss sometimes, and I only play 9 holes. After that, I've had enough. Brian would probably try to play 36 if I were up for it! Anyway, hopefully we'll get to go out on a date too. Dinner and a movie sure would be nice. I'm thankful just to have some quality time with my hubby, and get a break from watching baseball. We have to capitalize on these off days. They are few and far between!

Brian and I ate chicken salad sandwiches for lunch today. I got the recipe from Southern Living magazine. I love trying new recipes and finding a keeper! It's not the best I've ever tasted, but it was definitely good. If you're interested, the recipe is below:

4 cups cooked chicken breasts, chopped (I just used canned chicken for time's sake)
1 cup dried cranberries
3 stalks of celery, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mayo (I used light Miracle Whip)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Be sure to stir the last 4 ingredients together first, then combine that mixture with the rest of the ingredients.

The chicken salad recipe is like the one we used to get at Lucy's except there was lettuce in place of the chicken. Remember the salad? MA

I made your chicken salad for dinner tonight and it's delicious! Dad agrees. Thanks for the recipe.
