Menu Planning Monday 4/22

I wish I could say that I was doing better with Menu Planning. 

I'm not.

I don't even think I have any excuses or reasons why.  The meals we have been eating are small simple enough, that they can be put together pretty quickly without a lot of thought.  BUT Elizabeth and Jane said that it doesn't always have to be a weekly meal plan!  We can share recipes.  So here's a healthy take on a chicken salad sandwich that I tried last week, courtesy of Dorothy at Crazy For Crust!

Avacado Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Original Recipe from

  • 2 cups of cooked chicken (We buy canned chicken from Sam's Club that I always use for chicken salad.  I used 1 can.)
  • 1 medium avacado
  • 1/2 c. plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 c. salsa
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • Pita bread
1. Peel the flesh off of the avacado and mash.  (Dorothy said to use a potato masher.  We don't have one.  I'm not sure why....anyway, I used a fork.)

2. Add the yogurt, salsa, salt, & pepper, and stir.

3. Then add the chicken and stir to combine.

4. Serve on a whole wheat pita or whatever bread you choose.  :)  I had mine with a little salsa and tortilla chips.

This would be an ideal recipe for me. I love Avocado. Wish my hubby liked it at least a little. But, I will be trying this sometime soon. :)

Was this good?? I have it pinned to try soon! Oh-em-gee...we have no food. It's 4:51pm and I have no idea what's for dinner.
