We’ll get the let-down part out of the way first. If you read my last post, you know my poor kitten made it home from the declawing. Well shortly after I posted that, the complications began. I’ll try to make this short since it’s probably not very appetizing in a food blog. He had a lot of bleeding and an overall slow recovery in our opinion. Today is day 4 post-procedure, and he just wasn’t right. We took him back to the vet and it turns out he had an allergic reaction to the surgical glue in his paws 😦 They are keeping him another TWO nights to get the glue out and make him better. It makes me really sad for a number of reasons. If anyone reading this is considering declawing a cat… please just think twice! *SIGH* Ok, cat vent over.
Now for the double duty. Last night I made a nice (but recipe-less) meal consisting of an ever-so-convenient rotisserie chicken, garlic mashed potatoes (using leftover roasted garlic), and sauteed sugar snap peas. Simple and oh-so-good!
Tonight I used the leftover chicken for chicken salad. I added chopped carrots, banana peppers, onions and pineapple along with Miracle Whip Light, black pepper, and a few shakes of Worchestershire. I served it on a whole wheat sandwich thin. Mmmmm the sweet, salty, crunchy combination in the chicken salad was awesome.
