Heritage Park Care Center will be holding a fundraiser to raise money for a BIG Screen TV for their residents. The Car Show will be held this Saturday June 28th from 10 am -3 pm at 2700 West 5600 South in Roy, Utah. Come join in on the fun!
I made this for my lunch today and it was SO GOOD!!!! This is a very easy recipe for your clients to make at home or in a cooking group. I used canned chicken to make things easy for me. If you are doing it as a cooking class I would slice the avocado’s up so it stretches the recipe out and more clients can enjoy!
Southwestern Chicken Salad in Avocado Bowls
Recipe courtesy George Stella’s “Real Food Real Easy” Cookbook
Prep Time 15 mins / Serves 4
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
2⁄3 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons chunky salsa
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon lime juice
1. Fold chicken, sour cream, salsa, cilantro, and lime juice together in a large bowl, shredding chicken with a fork until your desired consistency is reached.
2. Cover and refrigerate chicken salad for 30 minutes for the ingredients and flavors to mingle, or skip to the next step to serve immediately.
3. When you are ready to serve, slice the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Use each half as a serving bowl for 1 person, stuffing chicken salad into the empty pit cavity and then mounding heaping spoonfuls over top of the entire surface of the avocado half. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro.

Uintah Villa – 6/2/2014
Suzie Shovel is a cute little girl who is three years old and is wearing a white shirt that won’t stay clean for very long. She is playing in her mother’s garden who is a leader and will join her soon. She is digging and shoveling like mad. She is raking the dirt. She is planting flowers and veggies. She feels the thinking it feels like dirt, something wet and fertilizer. She thinks it smells like soil. It is spring time and she can smell flowers that are beautiful and smell like perfume and summer. She is wearing he heavy gloves to play in the dirt. She has a sun hat on to cover up from the sun. She is making a mess with the water can and she lived happily ever after.
Friday Episodes in the Life of Our Children
Uintah Villa – 6/2/2014
Mickey Mantel was a cute, kind of fat little boy who is playing baseball, he has stripes on his uniform. His uniform is in the laundry so he used his dad’s dirty uniform and shoes which are too big for him. He is on TV. His arms are in his shirt to hold up his pants. He is having a good time running and playing in the dirt. He is in a championship game and is winning but losing his pants, his mother loves him and we like him anyway. He got kicked in the pants by his dad that is why he is running. He is waiting for his team mates to show up so the game will start. When he is done running all his brothers loved him.
