A yummy summer salad

I am not a huge fan of raw broccoli (WILL eat it, but don’t love it), but I absolutely LOVE this EASY, delicious, family-friendly salad that I served when we had friends over on Saturday night.  I am of the belief that “using what you have” is fine.  So, for instance, my mother-in-law (whom I got this recipe from) uses white raisins, but I had regular brown raisins on hand, so that’s what I used.

A decent-sized bunch of broccoli

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup of cocktail peanuts

1/2 of red onion

1/2 cup of mayo

1/2 cup of plain yogurt


Mix everything together (yes, that is the directions that I have).  Make it the day before so that the flavors can mix and mingle.  Enjoy!

Cruise Creativity…

Hi there — I thought it my be fun today for you all to see some of the coolest, creative things that I saw when we went on our cruise last month. I am the person that not only notices this stuff, but photographs it! I think these little extras are so amazing:

This bird is made of BREAD!!

A Bunny Towel

A creepy, yet very cool carved watermelon

 So, while, I didn’t create any of these things…maybe they will inspire you?  Enjoy!
