What’s your favorite meal to cook and/or eat?

One of my favorites is “my” chicken salad. So far everyone I share it with loves it.
I don’t remember where I found the recipe but I’m glad I did! it’s a winner for sure.

Here’s the recipe:
Bake skinless chicken breasts seasoned with Nature’s Seasoning
While still warm cut up into small chunks
Add cranberries and walnuts
Mix in a generous amount of mayonnaise (I use Vegan mayonnaise)
Voila! All done

The salad can be served just as a dish or as a sandwich.
My favorite is with a croissant but bread is okay.

That’s it!

Describe the happiest day of your life.

This is a hard one to answer. I have had a lot of happy days, too many to even remember all of them. But I think one of the happiest was when I was done with school. I didn’t graduate, I just left as soon as it was legal at age sixteen. I was miserable in school. Loved the learning part but hated the rest of it. I did fine without a high school diploma working in retail until I retired.

I have to say retirement has been the best time of my life!

Do you have a memory that’s linked to a smell?

I have thought about this all day and all I can think of is my mother. She had a distinct smell about her that was all her own. It wasn’t her perfume or the soap she used. It was just her personal fragrance. I haven’t smelled it in a long time, she took it with her when she died. I miss her fragrant presence.

1/13 If you had a billion US dollars, how would you spend it?
I don’t think I could spend it because
the shock of having that much money would kill me.

1/14 What is your preferred mode of travel?
I am a homebody extraordinaire and don’t travel,
but if I had to probably by car if not too far or plane if a long distance.

1/15 What fear have you conquered?
When I was a teenager and in my early twenties I was borderline agoraphobic.
It was awful and it took some work to overcome it.

What chore do you find the most challenging to do?


I don’t like doing chores. it is a challenge for me to do any of them.
But vacuuming and mopping the floors is the one chore I put off for as long as I can!
Oh, I vacuum at least once a week, but to get down and dirty
moving the furniture and mopping, not so often.
I do mop the kitchen floor every few days because
the cats aren’t the neatest when eating.
With three cats there are a lot of hairballs flying around.
Anybody with allergies or asthma best stay away.

My mother always said a house only has to be clean enough
to be healthy…anything more was foolish.
And to remember that nobody eats off the floor.
