The 12 Days of Christmas

Day #7On the Seventh Day of Christmas,

My true love said, “My Sweet,

I’m hungry from all this decorating,

Would you fix a snack for me?”

One of my favorite finger foods to bring to a party is chicken salad sandwiches. It’s better than homemade, so those of you who are as busy as I am will love this recipe.

Wal-Mart and Publix both have really good chicken salad in their delis – the kind with fruit and nuts and a light mayo for the base. Pick up one pound and a package of Hawaiian rolls – both the regular or butter flavored will work. Use a serrated knife to cut the rolls in half (it’s easiest if you leave each row in-tact and halve four at a time). Spread the pound of chicken salad over the entire dozen rolls like a spread, then put the rows of tops back on and cut each row into four. Place on a decorative plate and serve or cover and chill until it’s time to go.

It probably sounds too easy. But there’s something about the sweetness of the Hawaiian roll that blends with the chicken salad just perfectly.

And since you’ve saved time on your party finger foods, grab a book and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. I would recommend:

Love Redesigned by Sloane B. Collins

Sloane B Collins LoveRedesigned400 Book Cover

Give American cake artist Genevieve Haywood a picture of anything, and she’ll turn it into a sweet and decadent creation. She’s not going to let hard work or competition stop her from opening her dream business. But when she’s hired as the cake artist for her cousin’s wedding in France, she never expected to run into the French fashion designer who broke her heart fifteen years ago.

Roman Duchaine is done with living life in the fast lane. Tired of being in the haute couture spotlight, he’s moved back to the small French village where he was born and raised.

Roman’s ready to settle down and have a family until the lost love of his life arrives for his cousin’s wedding. Seeing her reminds him just how devastating falling in love can be.

Their fragile truce is meant to last through the wedding, yet every second together makes their attraction and long-buried feelings undeniable. But old habits and hurts die hard, and while Roman is ready to weave their lives together, Genevieve can’t afford to lose herself in his shadow.
