Mom's Broccoli Salad

As I've gotten older, I've certainly appreciated more what a good cook my Mom is. More than this, I recall all of the dinners I was forced to sit through as a kid not at all appreciating what the meal was but thinking of when I could get up from the table and go call a friend or listen to my new favorite CD. Why wasn't I more thankful for the effort she put into our dinners? And why do I not even remember some things she made then that I think our new and delicious now?

Such is life, but thanks Mom for all of your good cooking. Thought I'd share a new "old" favorite!

Broccoli Salad

1 bunch Broccoli - raw or steamed - 1-2 minutes
1 Cup shredded cheddar
1 purple or vidalia onion diced
8 slices of bacon, fried, and crumbled
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
1/4 Cup granulated sugar - adjust to taste
1 T red wine vinegar - adjust to taste

Chop or tear broccoli into small pieces. Mix broccoli, cheese, onion, and bacon. Chill. Mix the mayonnaise, sugar, and vinegar. Pour over salad when ready to serve.

Love to all,

Hot but gorgeous sunny days...

Good Morning Polka Dots

Took this picture last week as Savannah was waking up...special thanks to Brooke for this sweet night gown. It's hysterical seeing Savannah sleep in her polka dot gown on her polka dot sheets!

Surviving the summer heat - at the pool!

Yesterday we went to Grandma's so Savannah could swim for the first time....lots of fun was had by all! Here is Savannah - suited up and ready to go to the pool!

Grandma and Savannah getting ready to go in....

Daddy holding the new swimmer!

Three generations....

Savannah did great and seemed to really enjoy it. In this picture Savannah was telling Grandma how much she loved the yellow and white polka dot suit that she gave her!

Thanks to Mom/Grandma for a nice and relaxing afternoon as well as a delicious dinner! Some of her recipes will be posted on here soon.

Love to all,
Torrey, Dan, and Swimming Savannah
