TLC Chicken topped with Pico De Gallo - Secret Subject Swap

As you've already seen this week, we love Mexican food and there is a lot of it here on my site, especially before I went "clean". Lots of meat, cheese, spices... I prepare healthier versions now but just as flavorful.

You'll also see that this post is the monthly SSS = Secret Subject Swap. Each month I get a subject from another blogger and write about it.

Scroll down for the recipe and this month's SSS. Hope you enjoy!

My subject is “ you found a gold bell, what does it do”.  It was submitted by Stacey Sews and Schools.

So I'm cleaning my father-in-laws house and run across a little bell. I thought it was cute and maybe used when my mother-in-law was sick. I have a little bell at home and when I'm sick I use it to call for help.

So I clean it up and place it back on the shelf.

I start down the hall and hear a noise, I look back and there stands none other than a genie! A pretty little thing all decked out in purple, cool my favorite color.

At first I think I'm dreaming, until she says "you are not dreaming, I am a genie and here to grant you 1 wish"

OH HOT DANG all our money worries are over! But she shakes her head no. 
No what? I didn't even say anything.

She says, sorry, this wish is for dinner. You can have any dish you desire, up to 7 courses and cooked by whoever you would like PLUS you can eat it with anyone from your past.

Oh gosh...any dish? 7 courses? My mind is a blur, the one thing I do know is that I want it cooked by Julia Child and I want to eat it with my Daddy.
Coming up on the 1 year anniversary of his passing, all I can think about is him. When I cook, when I eat, when I see something on Facebook about one of his friends that is sick. I think "oh I should call him" but I can't...
What would Julia cook for us? I really would not care, as long as I could eat it with my Daddy and it be 7 courses long, taking hours, I'd eat a chocolate covered toad.

Alas, I awake and it is a dream, but beside my bed is the little brass bell. I pick it up and ring it, but nothing happens.

I go back to sleep sad and missing my dad even more.
