The Old Blacksmith Shop


Peeking inside the the window of the Wysong Blacksmith Shop, circa 1840, Fincastle.

For a more in-depth history on the blacksmith shop, visit Botetourt History.

I want to share with you the BEST chicken salad recipe in the world! Yes, Hotel Roanoke got back to me with their recipe!




Conner’s Chicken Salad

1 pound chicken, grilled or roasted
2 oz. onion, fine diced
2 oz. celery, fine diced
3 oz. mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. honey
1 lemon, zest and juice
A dash or Sriracha, or your favorite hot sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

yum!

Almost all of our snow has melted leaving a big muddy mess in its place. Yuck!

  18. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. If you can believe this, we make chicken salad almost every weekend to take to the beach. We LOVE it. We always put grapes cut in half and a pinch of pepper and these two ingredients seem to bring it alive. I will definately try this combination now.
