New Fings and Curry Pasta Salad

If I have never mentioned it before Nola's in DT Frederick has some of the best if not THE best pasta salad around. A while back Jon and I went there for lunch and they had made a curry pasta salad that we loved and I though "well shucks..I can make that." And so I done did

This is pretty much the last of it but I made enough to last me for a week including giving some to Jon and Pang. I kinda just made up the recipe, throwing stuff in, but here is what the measurements were:

Chicken Curry Pasta Salad

half box double fiber pasta (I needs my fibers people), cooked
chicken breast, shredded
2 carrots, chopped
half can sweet peas
1 tsp curry
1 tsp lemon juice
2-3 tbsp mayo

1. Combine the curry, lemon juice and mayo to make a uniform paste
2. Toss the pasta in a mix well
3. Carefully add carrots, peas, and chicken, mix well
4. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight

It's that easy! Paired with fruits and veggies like I have here and a little wrap and you got yourself a healthy little lunch

Also - a new fing from and old place:

Got this little tigers eye owl necklace from a thrift shop a few weeks back.
