Hello Internet! We’re Back!

We have a blog and we should use it.

I keep feeling that I am looking to the future too much.  Here is how the past year looked.

When I finish school…. When I pass state board… When tax season is over… When Mark finishes school… When I start working in a salon… When Mark finds out where he got into school… When I quit my day job… When we move…When Mark gets a new job…When… When…When…

I feel like I’m so focused on the next step that we forget to enjoy the ride that is today. I’m going to start focusing on the fun things of the here and now. Hope you come with me.

Another Reason it is Nice to Have Mark

One piece of advice I can give is marry someone who is handy. You never know when you will need to have your car worked on. Isn’t he hot when he is being manly working on my car?!

Summer Light Chicken Salad

As Jessica wrote, one of the driving ideas behind our blog was to share recipes that we have found and both love. This was the first recipe that Jessica suggested we try. The dressing may seem to be a bit odd with nutmeg, lemon, and garlic mixed together, but the flavors really do mesh superbly and the dressing truly is what makes this salad wonderful. Both of us fell in love with it from the first bite and now we are sharing it with all of you.

DRESSING:

1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. fresh garlic, minced

Salad:

2 1/2 c. cooked chicken, cubed
1 c. halved, seedless red grapes
1 c. (2 stalks) celery, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1/4 c. green onions, sliced
4 c. leaf lettuce, shredded

In jar with lid combine all dressing ingredients. Shake to mix. In large bowl combine all salad ingredients except lettuce. Toss salad with half of dressing. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Place lettuce on serving platter; top with salad. Drizzle remaining dressing over salad and lettuce.

Update: Below are a couple pics after I modified the salad using cucumbers, and sweet peppers in lieu of celery, and green onions. Enjoy!

Hello world!

Hello world!! We are Mark and Jessica Mae Przybyla. We met early 2009 and since then we dated, fell in love, got married, and are currently  working on living happily ever after. This blog came about because I sent Mark an email with a bunch of recipes and a subject line of “We need a recipe book… or something.” His response was, “Why don’t we just start a blog?” Tu che Mr. Mark! We should have a blog, and now we do.
