This is a guest post from my mom. We’re on a family vacation in the iconic epicenter of the USA, Yellowstone National Park. While I was pondering what to write about this tasty Red White and Blue Salad, my mom helped me brainstorm what to write.
I think she pretty much summed it all up, so I’m writing it verbatim, from mom’s mouth to daughter blogger’s post. She’s my biggest cheerleader, and in every way she can, makes my job as a blogger that much easier.
Take it away mom.
“We need to brainstorm this.
The 4th of July. Fireworks. Patriots. Red white and blue. But don’t talk about the wars. John Adams. George Washington. Flags, Betsy Ross who sewed the flag. She was quite the seamstress. Life, liberty and justice for all. That’s what it’s all about, the forming of the Constitution and the love of the United States of America!!!
This Red White and Blue Salad will lead you to the pursuit of happiness. That’s your title. There you go, I think your readers will like that. That’s the 4th of July in a nutshell. Or maybe that isn’t any good. I’m just brainstorming, we just need to throw it all out there.
So, what should we have for dinner? Hot dogs or burgers? You girls decide, I’m on vacation.”
