Gingerbread Men!

My dad has a thing for gingerbread cake, but for me, it's gingerbread cookies - no matter what the shape. This recipe was the one that made me take the leap . . . oh so long ago . . . to signing in to a recipe website so I could save my recipes. Thanks to my friend and neighbor, Renee for sharing it with me!

(Before you get started, just know that you'll have to chill for an hour.)

Curried Chicken Salad

Do you ever get stuck on a certain ingredient? I think it was my oatmeal that got me stuck on golden raisins. And my bean burritos got me stuck on cilantro. Well, this recipe has both and boy is it good! My in-laws were coming over today to see our pictures from Switzerland and to have lunch. I made curried chicken salad, egg salad, and had deli turkey for my Frances. (Elsie had a cheese sandwich made with, bleh, American cheese.) This is from, what else, Cooks Illustrated, but I poach my chicken instead of roasting it.

Which came first? The cow or the egg?

I crack myself up. I was making my egg-in-a-hole again today, but the glass I usually use to make my hole was in the dish washer. A biscuit cutter, I thought! But it was too small. I found a flower cookie cutter in my utensil drawer but it was too big. But that got me thinking. I love cookie cutters and have tons. So what turned out to be the perfect size? The cow!
