I have an idea and hopefully I have twenty some years to get it done. I'll need that much time! I want to make a cookbook for my children. Thus the name My Mama's Food. It has several meanings, for the entries in my journal it will mean me, my children's Mama. For me it means my dear Mom, their Mama Lu, for most of the recipes come from her and my grandma's and great grandmas. I do most of my cooking without a recipe, but sometimes they just need to be written down if we do not want them to be lost for future generations. When I left home I would have treasured a book like this, written by my Mom, so I want to try and do it for my children. I want to include photos of the kids helping me in the kitchen as they grow and eat what we make. What memories they will have when cooking in their own kitchen's and teaching their children to cook and sharing these memories with them and showing them pictures of themselves learning to cook with their Mama. I think it's a grand idea, now if I can pull it off!

Broccoli Salad

This salad is fresh and full of texture, I love the crispy bacon and the smooth cheese together. It might be good with toasted walnuts, too.

1 Large head of Broccoli
4 oz Cheddar cheese cubed small
1/2 C red onion chopped
8 slices bacon fried crispy

1/2 C mayonaise
1/2 C miracle whip
2T white wine vinegar (I use white wine vinegar in place of regular white, it's got better flavor.)
1/4 C Sugar
1/2  t Salt
1/4 t Black pepper
