What a fun weekend!!

Our holiday weekend included celebrating with "Big Bands On The Bay". If you like Big Band music, you'd love it here!! Every Sunday evening at one of the Chesapeake Bay beaches, Ocean View, the gazebo is filled with beautiful sounds of swing music and each week a different band plays.

Classic tunes of Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller
are always a treat and my favorite song is "In the Mood"
although I love "Sing, Sing, Sing" as well.

The sunset taking it's inspiration from Orange Juice,
is breathtaking over the beach pier.

Happy couples dance and sway to soothing sounds
and the salty air flows deliciously in the Bay breeze.

It's a perfect time to pack a picnic supper and sit under a beautiful sky on a blanket enjoying the summertime!

Here's a Curried Chicken Salad that makes a great sandwich on the go.

3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
1 medium apple, finely chopped
1/2 cup shelled salted sunflower seeds
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup apricot preserves
1/2 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add the yogurt, preserves, curry, mustard, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Serve on buns.
