We want to thank all of you for the sweet wishes you sent our way!!!
We had the most magnificent day!! We began it by attending church together. Then we came home to a BBQ Chicken dinner. My husband got up early and started a fire in the grill. Then before he came to church he put the chicken on . When we came home he made his sauce and brushed the chicken. It was falling off the bone tender. Sooo Good!!
I made our side dishes yesterday. I made potato salad, green pea salad and banana spilt cake.
After we had dinner we planted a yew bush in our yard to commemorate the occasion.
I would like to share my recipes with you.
Green Pea Salad
1 bag thawed frozen green peas all water drained off them
1 small red onion diced finely
6 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
small container of sour cream
1 jar pimento peppers
3 Tablespoons of real mayo.
If you wish 2 finely chopped boiled eggs
Mix all together and chill over night.
Banana Spilt Cake
In a 9x13 pan melt 1 stick of real butter then add 3 cups of Graham Cracker Crumbs to make a crust
Then in a mixing bowl add 2 sticks real butter , 16 ounces of powered sugar 1 T. vanilla and enough milk to get to spreadable consistency beat until light and fluffy.
Spread this over the crust
Then add a 20 oz. can of well drained pineapple crushed.
6 sliced bananas
Spread cool whip over the top ( I use 2 cartons as my husband likes alot of cool whip)
Then sprinkle top with crushed pecans and add maraschino cherries
When I serve I drizzle Hershey's syrup over the top.
This is a very rich cake and I only make this for very special events. You can half this and you can make it in a graham cracker pie crust. It is really delicious .
I hope you will enjoy these recipes!!!!
