Welcome, Sunday! My favorite day of the week! Until 5:00 pm rolls around and I remember that Monday is only a few hours away… then, Sunday, I don’t like you as much. Thorry. But, tomorrow most of us are off, so I will like you for an added few hours!

Hey, Friends! What’s going on?! How’s your weekend going?

My weekend would be WAY better if this weather would just behave. Barely 60 degrees and it’s almost June. Unheard of! And it better not rain on Memorial Day! I seriously don’t feel like moving my grill inside. No, I don’t have a plan B. If it rains, the grill is coming with me. Inside.

The only thing I have already prepared are these Chunky Chicken Salad Cups. They are sittin’ pretty in the fridge ready to be devoured. I’m surprised my husband hasn’t attacked them, yet. He always does. I guess this time he really listened. YAY for hubby!

You know how I love appetizers, right? You didn’t know?! Oh gurrrl, I looove me some apps. I could live on ’em! I’m especially fond of those appetizers that can be made with leftovers. Few years back I made this particular Chicken Salad with some leftover chicken breasts. For some odd reason, chicken, pickles, mushrooms, and sour cream sounded SO good to me, and no, I wasn’t pregnant. But, I am so glad I did go with the idea because this salad is heavenly! It’s creamy, it’s crunchy, and incredibly tasty.

In fact, when I go to a BBQ, this is the salad that I am asked to bring 90% of the time. The other 10% is reserved for dessert.

If you have some time, make it for your BBQ party! I’m pretty sure you’ll love it!  I am also sharing this recipe with the uber-talented Kim from A Night Owl Blog

    I love how easy this recipe is and how you use sour cream instead of tons of mayo! I love my chicken salad with sour cream, too!

    Can anyone tell me if the wonton cups get soggy with the chicken salad in them? Thinking of making them for a get together tomorrow night, but it seems like if I made them ahead of time the cups would get soggy.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Sue! If you leave the chicken salad inside for too long, the bottoms will definitely get a bit soggy. If possible, I would just wait to fill the wonton cups with the chicken salad until it was a bit closer to serving time.

    I’m broke, so wherever I can get the most bang for my buck is where I’d choose!

    Probably Target, since I could get ice cream *or* an ice-cream maker, depending on how lazy I feel when I win! πŸ˜€

    Just teasing. I’ve already got the $100 planned out – I need a nice heavy-bottomed soup pot to replace the thin hand-me-down I’m using!

    Thanks for the chance!

    World Market!!!
    If I chose Target I would probably buy boring things like laundry soap and awesome sprinkles. Wait, what?
    Still World Market though.
    Sometimes they have awesome sprinkles, too.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      I love World Market! And Target…and Anthro…and HomeGoods! It’s a good thing I can’t enter my own giveaways! πŸ˜‰

  5. Diana

    This is a tough choice. Either Homegoods because a coffee table is all that’s keeping me from having a complete living room or Target because there’s nothing you can’t get at Target!

  6. Cakewhiz

    If i won…i would pick target. I love that place. Great stuff at very reasonable prices πŸ™‚
    Ps: it’s been a while. Hope you are doing well hun πŸ™‚

  7. Susan Christy

    I would choose Target – I always need stuff from there. Now if I could just get past the dollar bins without putting 10 things in my cart.

  8. Averie @Averie Cooks

    Wow this is an amazing giveaway! Great idea!

    I would pick Anthro – but Target and homegoods aren’t too shabby either!
