There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Blueberry Pancakes and Chicken Salad

Hoping everyone had a wonderful long weekend. We did . My son grilled Chicken one day. I made a roast in the crock- pot the next day and Yesterday was the best. I made Blueberry pancakes for breakfast. And mom can eat pancakes . They mash up good and she loves them, She also does good with very tender roast , potatoes and carrots.  So when we make something for us that mom can eat it is a good day. I am a whiz at mashing things with a fork these days.
 But the best was the Chicken Salad my son made yesterday. He got the idea from Subway . They have a new chicken salad sandwich with dried fruit of some kind in it and apples. He went and got one . I thought it was ok but he really loved it. So he found a recipe online . It calls for 4 cups chopped chicken , 3 cups chopped apples , 3/4 cup mayo. Than dried cranberries, raisins and chopped celery to taste. It is amazing. I can't stop eating it. I made a sandwich for lunch and I keep going back to get more for snacking  with crackers off and on all day. It is the most healthy thing I have ate in months. Can't remember the last time I ate an apple.


  1. We had grilled chicken yesterday too.
    The sandwich sounds good but that is a lot of mayonnaise!!
    Glad your mom can still enjoy some foods.

  2. So good to hear you've had some good days and good food.

    I LOVE a good chicken salad! The one I have calls for water chestnuts, almonds and mandarin oranges (in a can)...... Your son's recipe sounds good.... I'll have to try that one.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
