So, Anyway, here it is Monday and it seems to be rather rainy and dull outside, and I happen to have no idea what in the world to blog about.
My dear friend Jayne, who you all know and love, over at Henley's Landing had a brilliant idea for a topic, but after some thought I decided that perhaps it would be best if I didn't approach "that one." Though I did laugh so hard thinking about it that I almost tinkled myself.
So, I have been giving it some thought and I feel that a recipe might be just the thing for a day such as today.
So, I present to you, dear friend a tried and true recipe that is a favorite of the Teakettle clan.
Mrs. Williams Broccoli Summer Salad...
* 5 cups fresh broccoli florets
* 1/2 cup raisins
* 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
* 1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon
* 1/4 cup of red onion, chopped
* 1 cup of frozen peas, thawed
* 1 cup mayonnaise
* 2 tablespoons vinegar
* 1/2 cup sugar
Combine broccoli florets, raisins, sunflower seeds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl.
In a separate bowl or large cup, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well.
Chill thoroughly before serving.
I love to serve this as a side, and triple the recipe for picnics and potlucks.
