Pippin Chicken and Sam Clam Soup


Mirepoix: yellow onion, carrot, celery. Taco chicken breast, cento red clam sauce, poblano pepper, green and red bell pepper, cabbage, zucchini, black truffle oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, sugar.

The clam sauce was a great find–tasted in the vein of Manhattan chowder. The taco marinade on the prepared chicken slices had cayenne and other usual Mexi flavors, but was fairly subtle.

Chicken Salad Sandwich Fixings


Covid 19 fears kept our sandwich makers at home today, so I stepped in and made some chicken salad sandwich filling as well as my regular soup. The above was with green, red, and orange bell peppers, Dijon mustard, tarragon, white pepper, and salt.

Below, I used curry powder, turmeric, Greek yogurt, lemon/ginger juice, jalapeno hot sauce, green, red, and orange bell peppers, black pepper, and salt.
