This week we are talking about Our Favorite Foods and Sharing a Recipe.
I am so lucky guys, I have a reason to share another list.
My Favorite Snacks
All my snack-y food favorites reflect the fact that I live with little people, (and that i have an immature sweet tooth).
- Maria’s cookies
- Vienna Fingers
- Little Debbie Strawberry shortcake rolls
- Pumpkin Rolls with cream cheese (cuz it is pumpkin season!)
- Animal Crackers
- Swedish Fish & Gummy Bears
I would go into all my favorite meals, but honestly it matters who makes it (i don’t cook much). My favorite thing to cook myself is Chili. Because Chili is so easy to make.
I am also sharing a super recipe for Broccoli Salad. I have made Broccoli Salad for every single event since…forever. I have won $$ in food contests for this salad. It is that serous.
- 2 heads of broccoli- chopped up
- 1 lb of bacon- cooked & crumpled
- 1 small red onion (i usually only add half, but i hate onion so do what you want)
- 1 cup mayo
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp. white vinegar
- *optional* sesame seeds or raisins
Put Broccoli, Bacon, Onion and Sesame seeds in a bowl big enough to mix in.
Mix up mayo, sugar and vinegar in a separate bowl until even. Then poor over other ingredients and stir, stir, stir (or put the lid on the bowl and shake, shake, shake)
Don’t be put off by the mayo. I was appalled when I learned what went into this salad, but the results are just so…Mmmmm!
