Snuggie Up With Me

Have you ever seen this commercial?

Yes. It is the one and only Snuggie. The blanket with sleeves. The best part of this commercial is that everyone, especially the older gentleman in the recliner, looks like a monk. That or as my friend Melanie says, something out of Star Wars.
Speaking of Melanie, she convinced me to go in with her and purchase one of these great inventions. My mom is always cold, so I knew she would absolutely love, love, love this thing. I could just imagine her roasting marshmallows around the campfire, or watching a sporting event and giving me a high-five without even having to remover her arms from under a blanket.
Oh, Snuggie inventor…thank you so much. You really had me and my family in mind when you thought of making a blanket with sleeves that keeps us so warm and holy looking.
I know that you are turning green with envy right now. Sorry about that. It always happens when someone sees that I have purchased a Snuggie.
Another thing to keep you warm this winter is a wonderful recipe passed on to my mom from a great friend of hers in our old neighborhood. It is a delicious, rich, tasty, and super easy hot chicken salad. As my mom told me, each time the recipe reaches someone they add their own flair. Here is my version:

HOT CHICKEN SALAD WITH CRANBERRIES

1/2 c dried cranberries

3 stalks of celery, chopped

1/2 can cream of chicken soup

6 oz sour cream

1 Tb mayo

2 c chopped cooked chicken breast

1/2 c sliced mushrooms

2 tsp thyme

1/4 slivered almonds

1 c shredded cheddar

1/2 crispy fried onions

Place dried cranberries in a cup of warm water for 10 minutes to rehydrate them. In a medium bowl, mix together next 7 ingredients. Add cranberries.

Place in a 8″ x 8″ dish. Top with cheese and fried onions. Bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until bubbling and browning.

Serve along side a light greens salad tossed in balsamic vinegrette.
