I had a few lemons leftover after making light lemon mousse, so I thought I'd make some fresh squeezed lemonade like my friend Christine did the other day with all of her California lemons! :-)

Light Lemon Mousse

Light Lemon Mousse
10 servings

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 cups fat-free milk
2/3 cup lemon juice
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping
3 drops yellow food coloring, optional

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch; gradually stir in milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice, peel and vanilla. Set saucepan in ice; stir until mixture reaches room temperature, about 5 minutes. Fold in whipped topping and food coloring if desired. Spoon into dessert dishes. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving and enjoy!

Chick-Fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Chick-Fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwiches

2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast
1/3 cup finely diced celery
1 hard boiled egg, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
2/3 - 1 cup mayonnaise
sandwich bread

Boil chicken. Remove from water and cool. After chicken is cool, cut into tiny pieces. Place in a mixing bowl with all other ingredients and mix well. Serve on sandwich bread and enjoy!

I found this recipe on the Internet. To this former Chick-Fil-A employee, that made lots and lots of chicken salad in her time, it does seem pretty close to how I remember the restaurant recipe. Of course using Chick-Fil-A seasoned chicken breast would make it even better!

1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup sliced bananas
