Great Harvest Bakery

I’ve been a fan of GHB for quite a while – I just never seem to be near one at the right time.  In addition to all their wonderful breads, now they have sandwiches!!  (At least at my local shop.)

On Sunday, I happened to be next to one and grabbed a delicious iced coffee.  (I am so happy that the weather is warm enough of iced coffee!)

I happened to be running errands today next to the other one in town and stopped in and got a ham & swiss on garlic cheddar bread.

Damn, that was a good sandwich.  So good.  I sadly do not have a snap of it because I ate it.  🙂

Check and see if there is a Great Harvest near you – everything they have is fantastic.

Easiest Chicken Salad

With the weather warming up, it’s time for cold salad sandwiches.  Never been an egg salad person myself, but I loooove my chicken salad.  Mainly because the only way it could be easier is if I got it at the store – and the store bought is never as good.

Chicken Salad!

1-2 pounds of chicken breasts, cooked and diced
Grey Poupon Country Dijon Mustard


Cook up and chop up the chicken.  For the sauce, the proportions are 1 heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise to 1 heaping teaspoon of mustard.  Now – how much of these tablespoons & teaspoons you need depends on how much chicken you have.  I just keep doing one of each until it looks like enough, taste it, then add more mayo or mustard to get it just right.

Combine it all.  There you go.  Really.  You could just eat it like that.  (I have been known to do that on more than one occasion.  Straight from the bowl.)

I like to add in some chopped celery and onions.  My brother prefers it plain.  If you go with grapes and apples, it’s a little harder to make sandwiches out of it, but it’s good.  I think it’s terrific on croissants.

Cooking the chicken takes the most time – but it’s not like you’re standing over the stove the whole time.  The rest, maybe 10 minutes.
