The Very Good Salad.


This salad was a recipe my Grams received from a good friend titled The Very Good Salad.  The name holds true. It is funny how every time I am home visiting and we want to make the salad the recipe disappears but we have made it so many times the ingredients are pretty much engraved in our minds. Here is the recipe for anyone who like to indulge in some very, very good salad. Also, very cheap and easy to make!

1 Can of Shoe Peg Corn or Whole Kernel (drained)
1 can of French-Style Green Beans (drained)
1 can of Petite Peas or Sweet Peas (drained)
1 cup of Red Pepper
1 cup chopped celery

1/4 cup Wessen Oil
3/4 cup of Red Wine Vinegar
1 cup of Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Teaspoon of Water

Pour over veggies, make few hours or day before. Keep good (refrigerated)


Handmade Notecards

I had these Planet Earth flashcards I had picked up somewhere and decided to use them as my own personalized Christmas tags. The set I had were specifically birds so I picked which bird seemed appropriate and covered the opposite side with printing paper, where I put my message. When finished it looks so adorable attached to a gift bag/box with some unique ribbon!
