Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

How blessed we are to live in country that appreciates our veterans and the sacrifices our veterans have made to keep us free.

It has been a beautiful holiday weekend. Yet another blessing.

We took flowers to the graves yesterday. At my husband's dad's, a local veterans' group puts flags on each grave site of veterans so it was pretty heartwarming to see all the flags blowing in the breeze. Where DH's parents are buried, I think the cemetery didn't sell them a very nice plot. It is under the tree, uneven and the soil is very claylike. Grass doesn't grow there and when it rains, mud splashes up. We try to keep it clean, but we don't go out after every rain. I guess it was just a matter of taking advantage of someone when they were in grief.

There is something so satisfying about cleaning house and having things put away and orderly. I just finished cleaning and I like sitting here admiring how nice it looks.

DH is out working in the yard. We had some radishes and green onions from his garden last night. We are going to have some tonight too with our salad.

Speaking of radishes, how do you eat yours when you eat them raw? Both our families always ate them with salt, but a friend eats his with butter.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

    I'm not a fan of radishes, but maybe it is because I didn't eat them with salt or butter.

    I have seen some Cuban Pulled Pork Sandwich recipes that have radishes as a garnish.

    Ooh, I love radishes. The Germans serve them with dishes of salt, but I think they're wonderful sliced thinly on top of a salad. Very peppery and good!
