Our Memorial Day consisted of laying out in the sun with our mini blow up pool. I’m aware that we probably look like rednecks, but guess what?
A fence is going up, so it won’t be as visible to the neighborhood as it once was. Hot dogs were grilled, a pork butt was smoked, Ramen noodle salad was made and a double layer strawberry shortcake was baked.
Stella went in the pool. She hated it.
But mostly, it was a day for giving thanks to our soldiers and remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could enjoy all of the above.
|this was before she was thrown in the pool. where she obviously thought she was going to die. have you ever seen a dog doggie paddle while not even in the water? this dog is special!|

Ramen Noodle Salad
for the salad:
– 1 package shredded cabbage ( I just buy the bagged coleslaw stuff)
– 2 packs Ramen noodles
– 4 green onions, chopped.
for the dressing:
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 Tbsp sugar
– 1 cup oil
– 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
– 1 flavor packet from noodle package
– Mix ingredients and pour over salad.
So simple, yet so delicious.
Hope y’all had a great Memorial Day!
