...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Something Yummy for Saturday

I am getting in the mood for salad.  Here are a couple of dressing recipes and then some layered salads that are great for pot lucks. The first one was from a friend who was so close to us that we thought of her as a cousin.  Long story there.
Then from my Aunt Fran and finally one from Miss Paula Deen who I used to watch until I figured out that every time I watched her show I gained 5 pounds. 

BTW does anybody out there ever try out these recipes or am I just wasting my time posting them?

Photos look appetizing but I'll have to pass on these. Mayo and I are not on speaking terms... won't have it in the house.
