I make lots of Chicken salads in the summer, usually loaded up with something fun or special…but every now and then I get a craving for a good old fashioned chicken salad. A few years back I was introduced to Costco’s Chicken Salad by my sister in law. My gosh, did it ever hit the spot and it’s crazy good. But I couldn’t help but think it would be so easy to make a Copycat Costco Chicken Salad at home.
When it’s hot and humid, you know what’s good? This Creamy Crab Rangoon Dip! Thank goodness, though, that our hotter than Hades last week cooled down a bit to a more normal just too darned hot! This week is forecasted for the low 80’s so I’ll take that although not too long ago, I would not imagine I’d be grateful for weather in the ’80s. I hope you have gotten some relief, too, wherever you are!
I was just watching TV and saw a cute commercial for Duracell batteries. They were asking if you’d rather have a battery with extra life or extra power and ended up by saying, “Because both is better than not both.” And I thought that just describes my Wonton Chips Baked or Fried served with my Creamy Crab Rangoon Dip.
I’m not sure when it all started. Maybe when I ran down to Minneapolis (in rush hour, no less) and picked up some gorgeous Feta at Bill’s Imported Foods (I love to give a shout-out to a local business) so I could make Bulgarian Clay Pots (not the pottery, the recipe) and ever since then, I can’t stop eating Feta or recipes with Feta in them! And so maybe it isn’t such a surprise that I’d make Honey Roasted Feta.
I had a thought the other day. About Knorr’s Spinach Dip. I don’t know why I got it in my head that I had to make that old fashioned, spinach dip. The one we used to make with a Knorr’s Vegetable Soup packet (now it’s called Knorr’s Vegetable Recipe Mix) and serve in bread bowls. And way back the 80’s I remember it was all the rage. I also remember Knorr’s Spinach Dip as being perfect on a hot summer day, all cool and creamy and delish and served at just about any summer party. Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, even Labor Day.
