Today's lunch was chicken apple skewers with a side container of watermelon/grape salad and a salted cucumber/pickled garlic and pickled jalapeno vegetable arrangement. Sadly, I over salted the cucumbers in an attempt to quick pickle them--and so Goose wisely left them mostly untouched. :P :P :P For the skewers, I used leftover chicken bits from an earlier dinner (dijon mustard and lime marinated chicken) and an apple pear...but this recipe would work just as well with simple chicken cubes seasoned lightly with salt and pepper and a standard red apple. I would love to take credit for the pickled garlic (pickled veggie experiments coming soon...woot!), but I confess these were store-bought from the Garlic Festival which (oddly enough) sells their delicious wares at various Renaissance festivals (www.garlicfestival.com). Om nom nom nom.
