Hello! Remember me? Ya, it’s been about a month since I last blogged and it’s been great. Sometimes you just need a break from some things and this was one of them!
There has been so much that has been going on the past month or two that I need to catch everyone up on. For starters, I have a couple of big announcements that I will be making within the next week, so stay tuned!
We have gotten some rain lately so we are not planting yet, but will be soon. There’s a picture at the bottom of this post that shows what has been done so far when it comes to spring field work.
But first I want to share this really easy and yummy chicken salad recipe!
I bought a whole roasted chicken at Hy-Vee for like $5.99. I don’t think I could have bought a raw one for that price and this one was already cooked! I just shredded it up and then added English walnuts and pecan pieces to it.
Next was some chopped celery.
And then some halved red grapes and light mayo.
Sprinkled in some pepper and mixed it all up.
I actually made this the evening before we were going to eat it for lunch and it was perfect the next day. I like my chicken salad on wheat bread with some romaine lettuce. This was a quick and easy lunch that fed a lot of mouths!
As I mentioned above we have received some rain lately, about two inches over this past weekend. It was a nice gentle rain and was a welcomed site. Right before it began raining, our anhydrous was applied to our fields. I wrote a few years ago about why we do this and how it benefits the corn. Next up will planting time! Hopefully the planter will be rolling towards the end of this week. Follow along over on Instagram for pictures when it does begin!
