Congealed Chicken Salad, Grilled Cheese
'The Expendables 2'

By Jim Hasser

Congealed Chicken Salad, Grilled Cheese


4 chopped chicken breasts salted to taste
2 chopped hardboiled eggs
1 c chopped stuffed olives
1 tsp chopped onions or chives
¾ c minced celery
1 envelope gelatin
¼ c cold water
2 c mayo

Combine 1st five ingredients. Soak gelatin in the measuring cup with ¼ c cold water for 5 minutes. Then, place measuring cup in hot water in a pot and let dissolve. Gradually add dissolved water and gelatin mix to the 2 c of mayo while stirring. Fold the mayo/gelatin mix into the chicken mixture. Place into casserole dish (11 x 9 x 2). Refrigerate overnight or for at least 1-2 hrs to allow the gelatin/mayo mix to harden. Serves 8 generously. We serve with grilled cheese (which I will presume you know how to do). Good eats; particularly in the summer. 2 thumbs up! 

The Expendables 2
The star studded gang is reassembled for an easy job, but when things go south and one of them is murdered ... it gets personal!


This action-packed thriller follow-up is directed by Simon West (not Stallone!) and stars Sylvester StalloneJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenChuck NorrisTerry CrewsRandy CoutureLiam HemsworthJean-Claude Van DammeBruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger!

Yes, this is a generally predictable formula type action adventure, but hey, it is what it is. You either like these kind of movies or you don’t. You know what you’re going to get from a Stallone movie. And the movie delivers as promised. 

My wife and I enjoy these kind of movies, especially when they are well done as this one is. We give it a twothumbs up!
