You know I hate waste. So when I roast chicken and have some leftover, I need to do something with it besides throw it in the trash. Now that grilling season is here, I suspect the same will happen with chicken on the BBQ.
Here’s a quick and easy way to jazz up a potentially boring sandwich. Try subbing grapes in for the apple, or almonds for the walnuts…yum! You could even serve this on lettuce wraps or in a cored apple. Do what you like!
And don’t forget, bidding for Bloggers Bake For Hope ends tomorrow (Friday) – check out all the delicious goodies being auctioned off! Again, all proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen – a wonderful cause. Thanks to those who have already participated for your generosity!
