What I’m Craving Now

by HEAB on June 7, 2013

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Chicken Salad!!!

I hosted our play group today and served my new favorite chicken salad along with warm pita bread, sliced avocado, a version of this spring vegetable rice salad and fresh fruit.

The recipe isn’t new.  It’s one I used to make all the time but with a few additions.  Just needed a little tweaking.  Also, it contains zero mayonnaise.  I love the taste of mayo, but I’m not a fan of the ingredients.

 

For some reason, I always crave chicken salad when I’m pregnant…

Baby #4 due to arrive in November. :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Thrilled for you guys! I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering what you’ve been up to. Well, what a wonderful post to read!

:)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:25 pm

Thanks Averie, and in regards to your other comment, I forgot that Scott’s mom had twins + 2 more. She survived, right?!? ;)

Emily June 7, 2013 at 9:44 pm

As soon as I read the title in my reader I got this feeling that baby number 4 (are ya sure there’s only one?) was on its way. Congrats, HEAB family!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:27 pm

Haha, yep, only one. Thanks Emily!

Danielle June 7, 2013 at 9:45 pm

Congrats!!! Very excited for you and your growing family!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:27 pm

Thanks Danielle, we’re excited too! :)

Meagan June 7, 2013 at 10:03 pm

OMG! I was thinking of you the other day. At first I was going to comment on how good of a idea cream cheese in chicken salad is, and then my jaw dropped! Baby #4! Congratulations! You are certainly going to have your hands full :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Thanks Meagan, and yes, hands full. It’s good for me though. Believe it or not, I’m a lot more relaxed these days. Kind of have to be. :)

Amelia June 7, 2013 at 10:53 pm

Yeah Heather!!!!!!! Wahoo for baby #4!! You’re so blessed. Happy and healthy pregnancy to you. :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:32 pm

Thanks Amelia and yes, blessed indeed. :)

Marissa June 7, 2013 at 11:18 pm

So happy for you!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:32 pm

Thanks Marissa, we’re happy too. :)

Lara June 7, 2013 at 11:26 pm

So thrilled for your growing family! I don’t know how this is even possible since we’ve never actually met, but you are some of my favorite people :)

And thanks for the chicken salad idea. I have one lone stalk of celery in the fridge that will no longer go to waste now!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:33 pm

Thanks Lara, and I feel the same way about you and Matthew. We will meet someday! Hope you enjoyed your chicken salad. :)

Dee June 8, 2013 at 12:16 am

Thanks so much Jessica. :)

kendra June 8, 2013 at 1:32 am

Congratulations- I haven’t visited your blog in a long time but wanted to see what was happening with your family. Exciting news.

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:34 pm

Kendra, thank you and yes, very exciting. :)

Chelsey June 8, 2013 at 2:48 am

Congrats!!! What another tiny little blessing! I have been meaning to hit you up for twin advice and keep forgetting. Expect an email from me soon, super mom!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:37 pm

Hi Chelsey,
I am so excited for you – it’s been amazing having twins. We knew there was a risk for multiples if we tried for another baby, and we were completely fine with that (however, just one heartbeat this time around). I love love LOVE being a mama to twins. You have so much to look forward to when your girls arrive and please email me anytime. I know I had A LOT of questions when I was pregnant with Charlie and Katie.

Em June 8, 2013 at 4:25 am

Wow!! Congratulations Heather!! You are a very brave Mama!! :) I am so happy for your family!! We just added a baby girl to our family and while I love her to pieces and can’t imagine life without her now, have 2 little ones is overwhelming at times (many times!) for me! ;) but I know it will get easier… :) anyway, that chicken salad looks awesome, I am making that for dinner this week for sure, thank you for the recipe!! I have had similar chicken salad before and LOVE it!! I hate mayo in chicken salad, I feel like after it sits in the fridge it gets weird and watery, blech.

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Thanks Em, and congrats on the birth of your little girl. And yes, definitely overwhelming at times. We have some great help, and CD is an awesome dad. Definitely takes a village, huh? Hope you enjoyed the chicken salad. It’s yummy. :)

coco June 8, 2013 at 4:59 am

oh Heather!!! i can’t believe you’re pregnant again! This is sooooo great! I’m so excited for you! Please do share everything about this one too!!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:40 pm

Thanks Coco, we’re excited too! :)

Kristin (Cook Bake Nibble/Niblet Blog) June 8, 2013 at 6:21 am

Oh my gosh! Congratulations, Heather! I am so happy for you. Also, I am due on December 1st! Hopefully you will post a little so we can follow along with pregnancy #3!!

xoxo

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Kristin,
Ahhh, so exciting – our babies could share the same birthday, although I usually go early. Might have a little Thanksgiving baby on my hands. :) I will try and post when I can. I really do love it, just not much time. Hope you are feeling well. I for one am so glad the first trimester is over – I always forget how miserable it can be.

lindsay June 8, 2013 at 6:44 am

that’s a pretty tasty craving, especially for the summer. So happy for you guys!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:42 pm

Thanks Lindsay! :)

Katie June 8, 2013 at 7:00 am

CONGRATS!!!! I am so excited for you guys!

You are super mom!!!! <3

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:42 pm

Thanks Katie – we’re excited too.

K June 8, 2013 at 7:32 am

Congratulations! Look forward to reading about your cravings:).

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:44 pm

Thanks K, and oh my gosh, the cravings…bagels, cream cheese, chicken, milk chocolate, and tootsie roll pops about sums it up. Hasn’t been pretty, but at least no Pop-Tarts this time around. ;)

Amy June 8, 2013 at 7:46 am

How am I so excited for someone I’ve never even met?! Congratulations! I’m due with #2 in September (my #1 is a few months younger than Summer). Hope you are feeling well!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Thanks so much Amy, and congrats on your news. So exciting you’re having another baby (I love babies!!!). I am feeling much better, thank you. First trimester was not fun, but the worst is definitely behind me. Hope you are feeling well yourself!

Jonna Green June 8, 2013 at 8:13 am

Christa @ Edible Balance June 8, 2013 at 9:42 am

Well now it’s truly official when announcing on the blog! ;) So incredibly happy for you, I have loved seeing your photos on instagram and watching your kids grow! Such a sweet, beautiful family you have already and there’s more sweetness to come! Congratulations xoxo

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:51 pm

Thanks so much Christa. :)

The Delicate Place (@misathemeb) June 8, 2013 at 10:27 am

you are a superhero…seriously. i commented on your instagram about the new soon to be arrival…#4? girl, you crazy ;) haha i’ll take a good chicken salad any summer time picnic day! yum! hope this summer humidity takes it easy on you!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:54 pm

Melissa,
Ha, hardly! Trust me, I have my share of “horrible mom moments”. So supermom I am not. However, I am completely crazy. ;)

Humidity has really hit down here in Nashville. So, I just sit inside and eat cold chicken salad. It’s all good.

Jenn (eating bender) June 8, 2013 at 10:58 am

Congratulations again, Heather! I am so excited for you and your wonderful family. I’m guessing this means it may be a tad longer before you make your triumphant return visit to Arizona? ;) But it will be well worth the wait!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:55 pm

Thanks Jenn, and please know we dream of coming out to Arizona. Not sure when it will happen again, but it will. Miss those beautiful December days when we visit at Christmas!

leah June 8, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Awww, I am so happy for you! We just had #5 in April and are having a blast with our full house. Babies are wonderful. :0)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Thanks Leah, and I am so happy for you! Babies!!!! – the more, the merrier right…although I think four is about it for us. We like even numbers around here. :)

Again, congrats, and I hope all is well. How cool is it going to be to watch all these kids grow up together?!?

Alaina June 8, 2013 at 2:11 pm

Congratulations Heather!! I kind of had a feeling that the title of the post would allude to that. :-)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Thanks so much Alaina. :)

Kara June 8, 2013 at 4:19 pm

Haha way to slip that in there! Congratulations!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Thanks Kara. I’m sneaky that way and kind of over the big blog announcements. Didn’t feel like coming up with anything creative.

Hannah June 8, 2013 at 4:29 pm

So many smiles and thrilled hugs and squeals of congratulations, dear Heather! (even though I caught a hint of this on instagram, I believe… ;) ) Wheeee!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Thanks Hannah, we’re smiling pretty big over here too. :)

Elisabeth June 8, 2013 at 5:23 pm

How wonderful! Congratulations to all of you!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Thanks so much Elisabeth. :)

Evan Thomas June 8, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Congrats Heather!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Thanks Evan!

vanillasugarblog June 8, 2013 at 7:13 pm

Heather!!!
OMG you baby making machine.
I’m so happy for you.
You are the best mom; someone like you should have more kids because you are so good, so natural at it.
Bring on the Oreo’s!!! Let’s celebrate!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:01 pm

Haha, thanks so much Vanilla and yes, here’s to many blizzards over the next few month, EXTRA OREOS!

Lori June 8, 2013 at 7:15 pm

Congrats to you and your family. Blessings to all.

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:05 pm

Thanks so much Lori :)

Amanda Yoder June 8, 2013 at 7:19 pm

Congrats! What a blessing, you are a great mama :-) Feels like it was only yesterday when Summer was on the way!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:06 pm

Thanks so much Amanda, and it feels to the same way to me. These past three years have flown by!

Kelly @ Leafy Not Beefy June 8, 2013 at 7:34 pm

Wow, that is so exciting. Congrats to you and your family!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:06 pm

Thanks Kelly. :)

Tracy June 8, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Oh my! Congratulations, Heather!! Your family is going to be similar to mine. My kids are really close in age, too. We have a 17 yr old boy, 15.5 yr old boy and 14 yr old boy/girl twins. Four in high school next year!!!! I love having them close in age though and would do it again the same way in a heartbeat. Blessings and good health to you <3

Such exciting news :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Thanks so much Tracy. I remember you telling me about your sweet family, and it is so encouraging to hear from other moms of multiples+ that have survived. Ha! We are grateful to have our kids close age, and I cannot wait to watch them grow up together. It’s already been so amazing, and I know it will only get better and better as the years go by. Exciting news indeed. :)

Tracy June 18, 2013 at 12:09 pm

Yes! You will survive ;) I actually think once you get past the physically demanding toddler years it’s easier. We are never without a playmate or someone to hang or play games with. Also, we’ve always had the same interests age-level wise. Even now as teens they like to hang with each others friends. It’s all good!

All the best to you!

Jessica June 8, 2013 at 7:40 pm

Congratulations!!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Thank you Jessica. :)

Annie June 8, 2013 at 7:42 pm

Wow… seems like just yesterday you were unveiling the vagina cake! LOL This is tremendous news!! Congratulations!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:10 pm

Haha, thanks Annie, and I don’t think there will be a sex cake this year. I’m thinking of just making myself a funfetti cake and calling it a day! ;)

Allison June 8, 2013 at 7:43 pm

Wow Fertile Myrtle!! You are a brave lady!!! Congrats and happy gestating!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Haha, thanks Allison. Brave and a little crazy. Plus, I have some great help and an awesome husband. It truly does take a village!

Cherie June 8, 2013 at 7:46 pm

Wow…thanks for sharing the wonderful news Heather! Congratulation’s to you, Chris and your beautiful family! I’m so happy for you guys!!!

Oh, and I am going to make that delicious chicken salad, lol!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Thank you sweet Cherie – we’re happy too. :) Hope you enjoyed the chicken salad! :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:15 pm

Thanks Sarah. :)

Anita June 8, 2013 at 9:20 pm

Congrats!….that company that makes the light cheese triangles Oh yes laughing cow they just made their own cream cheese squares and the pretty soft I bought them but I haven’t tried them yet might be worth checking out for your chicken salad

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Um yes, totally checking those out. I think I told you, I love the Laughing Cow blue cheese triangles. So good on toasted bagels!!!

The Dainty Pig June 8, 2013 at 10:13 pm

oh my gosh, congratulations!!! I was just thinking of you the other day, and wondering what was new in the world of HEAB. So exciting!!! :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Thanks so much Jess. Very exciting indeed. :)

Marty June 8, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Whaaaaaa! Whoot! Heather send Chris! Oh my! Congratulations! I’ve been here in the wings, busy, will send my long overdue pkg to Summer! Gheese, now I’m going to be 3 behind!?! Unless you’re due with another set of twins?! ;-) . Love you m

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Haha, no worries Marty. We so love all the blankets you sent before Summer’s arrival. They have gotten A TON of use and will get much more before all is said and done. Summer was playing with the little whale doll you sent this morning. Those are my favorite stuffed animals and the only ones I keep out. Others get stashed in her closet.
PS – just one heartbeat this time around. :)

Lindsey June 8, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Ahhhh!!! Congratulations!!! So so excited for you! Maybe it’s a boy do you have a taste of it all – single girl, boy and girl, single boy?? Never know!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:23 pm

Thanks Lindsey! Just one little heartbeat, and I have no idea what the sex is. We find out in mid-July, and I can’t wait!

Holly June 8, 2013 at 11:10 pm

I was just about to comment back about how I’ve been craving the same thing and I had to run out and get some the other day and now I’m picking my jaw off the ground because I finished your post. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! This is so EXCITING! I keep thinking of Summer and how she’s going to be the big sis of so many little siblings!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:24 pm

Haha, thanks so much Holly, and believe me, we shocked a few people with our news, including some family members. Hope you enjoy some chicken salad soon! :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:33 pm

Thanks so much Marcia, a special person with a lot of help and an awesome husband. :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:35 pm

Thanks so much Julie, and yes, we feel completely blessed. :)

Heather June 9, 2013 at 7:15 pm

Congratations! So excited for you :)
Don’t eat too much sage while pregnant. Just in case. I read somewhere it can bring on uterine contractions.
Be well! You look amazing as always!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:36 pm

Thanks so much Heather and thank you for the sage tip as well. Hadn’t heard that one.

Alyssa June 10, 2013 at 9:11 am

Oh my goodness! You are a baby making machine :-) Congrats! And that chicken salad looks fantastic…I must try with cream cheese :-)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:36 pm

Haha, thanks Alyssa, and I hope you enjoy some chicken salad soon! :)

STUFT Mama June 10, 2013 at 9:51 am

Oh my goodness Heather!!!!!!!! Congrats! Number 4? I just want to hug you (and bring you chicken salad). :)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:37 pm

Thanks STUFT, and please know I gladly accept all offers of hugs and chicken salads. Too bad you live on the other side of the country. :(

Thanks so much Michelle :)

Liz June 10, 2013 at 3:15 pm

It’s hard to believe I first started reading this blog when you didn’t have any kids — you’ve packed a lot into the last few years. I’m so excited for you and your family. Your compassion and warmth really come through in your blog, and all of your little ones are lucky to have you as their Mom! Congratulations!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Liz,
We sure have. Thanks so much for sticking with me through the years. :)

Denise Billings June 10, 2013 at 3:23 pm

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Maren,
Haha, yep, the bump is officially here. Thanks so much. :)

Jennie June 10, 2013 at 5:43 pm

I already said congrats on instagram, but again, many congratulations. You are definitely supermom.
Your chicken salad reminds me of a waldorf chicken salad that I used to make all the time, but never got around to tweaking the recipe to eliminate the mayo. I’m going to pick up the ingredients tonight, and I’m excited to revisit an old favorite. Thanks for the inspiration :-)

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Thanks so much Jennie, and I hope you enjoyed the chicken salad! :)

Cecilia June 10, 2013 at 5:50 pm

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:43 pm

Thanks Lori and Michelle. :)

Ameena June 10, 2013 at 9:14 pm

I didn’t crave anything while I was pregnant but I did have some serious food aversions…that I haven’t recovered from 8 years later. Kind of crazy.

You look great! So does the chicken salad.

Congrats Heather! So happy for you.

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:45 pm

Thanks so much Ameena, and I’m that way with my old favorite spinach lasagna. I made it early on in my pregnancy with twins and can’t eat it now. Same thing with ginger. Tried eating candied ginger and drinking ginger-ale to help with morning sickness when I was pregnant with Summer, and now the thought of both still make me gag. Wish I could say the same for ice-cream. ;)

Sarah Anne June 10, 2013 at 10:26 pm

A belated but very happy congratulations to you!!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:46 pm

Stephanie June 11, 2013 at 8:38 pm

Oh, what fun! More babies to wrap in tie-dyed onesies! (here’s hoping it’s just the one, though…) Congrats!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 3:53 pm

Thanks Stephanie, and yes, I’ve got some tie-dying to do!
PS Just one heartbeat this time around, although we would have been happy with two. LOVE having twins! :)

Samantha June 11, 2013 at 9:23 pm

And did you know, I’m due in November too!

HEAB June 17, 2013 at 4:13 pm

Allie June 24, 2013 at 7:28 pm

Congratulations! We have a 2 year old boy and would love to have another, but Clomid doesn’t seem to be doing the trick this time around. Any words of wisdom?

HEAB June 24, 2013 at 7:41 pm

Thanks Allie, and I’m so sorry to hear about your troubles. I know it’s frustrating when you really want another baby, and it simply won’t happen. I’ll email you about what worked for us. :)

Thanks so much Shannon, and we’re super excited about baby #4. Never thought I’d end up with this many kids, but here I am. So grateful for our big household and excited about watching our children grow up together. :)
