DAY 193 -- A long time favorite recipe.

Years ago I prepared a recipe that I found in a magazine: Chicken-Walnut Saute'.  It was a hit, and continues to be one of our favorites.  (I posted it on my Recipe page.)

Although the recipe asks for walnuts, over the years I have experimented with other nuts too.  I've prepared it with cashews, almonds, and even peanuts.  I prefer the walnuts though.  I think they give a pleasant contrast in flavor.

One nice thing about old age forgetfulness, the recipe seems new and fresh.  My husband came home, saw what I had prepared and acted like it was our first time for the meal.  "Mmm... that looks good, what is it?"

Unsure if he was teasing, I responded, "Uh, Chicken-Walnut Saute'."

"Smells great, I'm sure I'll enjoy it."

"You've had it before," I reminded him.

"I have?"

And he loved it...just like he did all the previous times.  It's still a hit!


  1. Sounds wonderful! I'm glad you pointed to the recipe ~ I will have to give this a try.

    P.S. I will send you my Rye Bread recipe when I return from camping. It's the first time I made it and it turned out beautiful!

  2. Susan...fantastic! I look forward to receiving your recipe. sugarholicinrecovery@gmail.com
