Hello lovelies! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was so beautiful here in central Minnesota. 

A friend and I stayed at a hotel downtown over the weekend and tried out an awesome restaurant called The White Horse. I will be posting a review on the blog sometime this week!

Our city is finally getting some new and different restaurant options and I really love stopping at them and trying some new food!

Today's recipe is for Crunchy Poppyseed Chicken Salad! LOVED this recipe!! 

I have a huge stack of Kraft magazines laying around that I never use, so I decided to cut out all of the recipes I like, and file them away so I can actually make them someday. 

I have file folders all organized by sides, beef, drinks etc so that when I'm looking for something new to make I can easily find them. I also have a huge collection of cookbooks for inspiration.

This would be the perfect addition to a BBQ or picnic. I love all of the flavors, they blend so well together! Enjoy!!

I love food, but I also love essential oils! Check out my Young Living page here for everything oils!
