Happy Birthday & A Recipe

 

 

 

Birthday5

 

Last Wednesday June 22nd my mama turned 91 years young!   I can’t even imagine all the changes she’s seen in her lifetime.    We had to move her to an assisted living facility 18 months ago and she has adjusted beautifully.    She gets her nails done on Mondays and plays bingo 2-3 times a week….don’t dare try to go pick her up to go somewhere when it’s bingo day or manicure time!

So this weekend we will be celebrating her special day at the lake.    My sister and I are furnishing most of the food but everyone is bringing enough chicken to grill and drinks for their family.     The only downside is my daughter and her family will be on a pre-planned pre-paid vacation so they won’t be there.Sad smile

One of the dishes I’m bringing is this tried and true marinated vegetable salad….so easy to make and so yummy in the tummy!    I got this recipe from a friend who caters dinners at my mom’s church.    Everyone always loves it so I thought I’d share it with ya’ll.

 

MARINATED VEGETABLE SALAD

  • 1 – 11 oz. can white shoe peg corn
  • 1 – 16 oz. can french green beans
  • 1 - 16 oz. can green peas
  • 1 med. onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 c. celery finely chopped
  • 1/4 c. bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/4 c. pimento – diced

Drain vegetables and mix all together

 

Marinade

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Heat well until sugar dissolves.   Pour over vegetable mixture and keep in refrigerator overnight.

We’re  having BBQ chicken, baked beans, potato salad, marinated vegetable salad, assorted fresh fruits, fresh tomatoes, and rolls.     AND I’m making this cake when I get to the lake!

After lunch I’ll be sitting on the dock, sipping a strawberry daiquiri, then taking out the boat for a nice long cruise around the lake!

What are YOU doing?
