Surrounded by unopened boxes, what am I doing right now? Blogging, of course. When in need of distraction - what could be better?
For some reason this move has been harder than the last two. I am having a very difficult time throwing out food that was in storage for two years. With so many hungry - it seems such a travesty. But without knowing what is spoiled and what is not, most of it is going. The temperatures in Minnesota are extreme, leaving even canned goods suspect. The boxes remain stacked next to the pantry. They've been there a week so far.
On top of a move, we will have company tonight and tomorrow night. My nephew is graduating high school and family will be here from out of town. I need to make a cabbage salad - an absolute favorite of my family, and requested by my sister:
Fume Chicken Salad
1/2 head cabbage, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
2 TBL sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 C slivered almonds, toasted
1 chicken breast (marinated in teriyacki sauce) - cooked, cooled, sliced thinly
1 pkg Top Ramen noodles (without seasoning), crumbled
1/2 C canola oil
3 TBL rice vinegar (I always use more)
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt or soy sauce
1/2 pkg dry mixture from soup
Just before serving, break up dry Ramen noodles; add dressing and toss.
I always double this recipe, as it goes that fast!
My brother just called for directions to my house. Eek!
