Chicken Salad Again

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Just because it’s the weekend, it doesn’t mean that I don’t think about packed lunches. You see, The Boy holds a steady weekend job that leaves me home alone most weekend mornings and I need to think of things to occupy my time so I don’t end up doing things like, well….this:


Didn’t know I could knit, did ya?

Unlike the last chicken salad bento I posted, I was able to use mayo this time. The Boy has fewer dietary restrictions than I do, and I like to spice things up with a little something added to the mayo from time to time. Curry chicken salad has become more common now-a-days, but I’ve been known to add Singapore spice, creole spice, well pretty much anything you might find as a fancy-pants aioli or special mayo (think herbs, mustard, hot sauce, etc). Chicken goes so well with other things that it is hard to go wrong with this one. If you are worried, well…that’s what the internet is for. It can do the thinking for you.

The other weekend, I sent The Boy off to work with this:
