Sounds like fun!

Let's Get Cooking
Garden Party
Invite your neighbors, your family and friends over for a spring garden party. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can purchase small potted plants as accents for decorating inside the house. As a bonus, your guests can take these plants home as a parting gift. To help you plan your garden party, below are a couple of recipes for you and your guests to enjoy.
Chicken Salad Croissants
1 lb cooked chicken, shredded
1 small red onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
¾ cup mayonnaise
1 cup craisins
½ cup sliced almonds
Poultry seasoning
Croissants, sliced
Boil chicken in a large pot; add salt, pepper and poultry seasoning to taste. When chicken is cooked, remove from heat to let cool. Chop red onion and celery and place in a large mixing bowl. When chicken is cool, place chicken on cutting board and use a fork to shred the cooked chicken. Add shredded chicken to the mixing bowl. Add ¾ cup mayonnaise, 1 cup craisins, ½ cup sliced almonds and salt and pepper to taste. When ready to serve, spoon onto sliced croissants.
Serve with fresh fruit.
Mint Tea
6 tea bags
8 ounces water
1 cup mint
Simple syrup (see recipe below)
Bring 8 ounces of water to a boil in a medium pot. Remove pot from heat and add tea bags. Let steep until desired strength.
To make simple syrup, add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add mint and bring liquid to a boil then remove from the heat. Allow the syrup mixture to cool. Pour syrup into tea and mix together well. Serve tea over a glass of ice. Garnish with sprigs of mint.
