This is a fun party drink for kids -”Shirley Temple” and for the boys, it’s a Roy Roger - -Shirley Temple is a sweet, non-alcoholic drink named after the child actress Shirley Temple created during the 1930s.
Child actress Shirley Temple began her career in 1932, at the age of three. On her 10th birthday, a bartender at Beverly Hills restaurant Chasen's is said to have created a non-alcoholic cocktail to serve to her while she dined with her parents and older celebrities.
The Shirley Temple consists of ginger ale and a splash of grenadine, topped with maraschino cherries. But, like most food lore, there are conflicting accounts of the drink's origin. The Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki also claims to have invented the drink, since Shirley Temple was a frequent guest there.
In addition, the Brown Derby in Hollywood marketed drinks with celebrity names, and also may have originated the Shirley Temple.

Curry Chicken Salad
A nice blend of savory and sweet to spice up your sandwich or salad greens!

¾ cup chopped celery
½ cup sliced apples
2 tablespoons golden raisins
2 tablespoons chopped cashews
½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
¼ cup light mayo
½ teaspoon white vinegar (or rice vinegar)
½- ¾ teaspoon curry powder
Put the chicken, celery, apples, raisins and cashews in a medium bowl. In a smaller bowl combine the yogurt, mayo, curry powder and vinegar well and pour over the chicken mixture. Fold in the dressing and mix well. Chill if not serving immediately.
