I was going to make cookies tonight, but I went to Dollar Tree at lunch and found some awesome finds! Wanna know what I found? I found this:

And then in my frantic searching, I also found this:

Win #1: They came in the same pack - for a BUCK! Win #2: They had multiple packs. Win #3: I grabbed one for my bestie! I haven't had that great luck at Dollar Tree in quite a while! I was planning on leaving the mani I'm wearing now til the weekend, but since I found the crackle polish, that's not gonna happen.
OK. Back to business. I hope you don't mind my combo post - I was just too excited to not mention my find to you.
Waaaaaay back....in 2004...I found this little digest cookbook (Low-Carb Recipes) at a register at the grocery store. I'm a sucker for cookbooks, and we were trying to eat healthy (this is a thing we've struggled with on and off forever), so I grabbed it. I've made a couple recipes out of it, but this is the one we make the most. Well, I make the most.
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 to 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
2 cups dicked cooked chicken
1 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup sliced green onions
crumbled bleu cheese (optional)
Combine mayo, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, lemon peel, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Add chicken, celery and green onions; stir to combine. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
Serve salad on lettuce-lined plate. Sprinkle with bleu cheese, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
NOTES: I usually use light (or reduced fat) mayo and sour cream and I don't taste the difference. I've never had it with bleu cheese, but I bet it's good!
I forgot to add the sugar in the picture. Oh, and the lemon. Sheesh!! To "grate" the lemon, I use a microplaner and it makes the zest super fine. I probably would've never bought it for myself, but one of my aunts gave it to me on a lark when we were camping.
So, you know what I'll be doing tonight! Painting my nails with a bright color topped with my awesome crackle polish (and hoping it works since I have no idea how old it is) and watching Grey's Anatomy. Sounds like a good night to me! And how sad is it that finding an old polish for (basically) 50-cents makes my day?
