Curried Chicken Salad | Great Neighborhood Cooks

Curried Chicken Salad

Our home in Upstate NY was located in an historic hamlet on the shore of Lake Ontario called Pultneyville. The hamlet was originally laid out in 1806 and is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. At one time a significant Great Lakes trading port and site of a War of 1812 skirmish, it now is a quiet, Western New York bedroom community. Set between the fruit orchards and a Great Lake on the Seaway Trail, many of Pultneyville’s activities focus on summer sailing and theatre. The hamlet boasts an active marina and is home to the second-oldest little theater in the United States.

Spaghetti with Veal and Porcini Meatballs

As you know, Rob & I live in Southwest Florida year-round.  We have lots of friends down here who are seasonal & don’t do much cooking while on their 6 month “vacation.  I love to cook, enjoy entertaining friends.  Eating dinner out isn’t really my thing especially during season. To crowed, to pricey and reservations only available at 5:00 or 9:00.

 
ASIAN MARINATED PORK CHOPS - Great Neighborhood Cooks

Asian Marinated Pork Chops

Rob & I eat a lot of chicken & fish. Sometimes it’s great to grill a nice thick pork chop. We had some friends over for dinner one evening and I didn’t feel like another trip to the grocery store. Found 6- 1″ thick bone in pork chops in the freezer and gave it an Asian flair. Grilled the pork chops to medium and they were incredibly tender juicy. Served with sautéed garlic spinach and baked sweet potatoes. Yum!!
