Here's the recpie for "The Salad of Awesome!" aka (Bacon, Chicken, Avocado Salad)

INGREDIENTS (4 Servings)
1/4 pound bacon, or 4–5 slices, cut into 1/2 inch bits
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, chopped into 2
inch pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper
1 avocado – peeled, pitted and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped walnut (Almonds are good too!)
1 apple – cut into 1 inch chunks

In a pan over medium heat, cook the bacon “bits” until crisp. Remove and set aside, but save the bacon grease
in the pan. Next, add the chopped and seasoned chicken thighs to the pan and sauté in the bacon grease.
Cook the chicken and turn so that every side is browned. Allow it to simmer over low heat while you prepare
the rest of the salad.
Toss the chopped romaine, avocado, chicken and bacon together. Top with red onion, walnuts and apple.
Dress with your favorite vinaigrette

    Great points, too, Mabyn. Glad the crocuses make you smile. I wonderif crocuses know what they represent to people and how much hope they offer, especially in snow belts ...
