Macaroni Salad With Bacon

Well, I hope everyone had a nice weekend and now it’s time to start our plans for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend with lots of great foods on the barbie and all the trimmings to go with. Not quite sure what we’re planning on yet, but I do know there will be lots of potato salad and cole slaw getting prepared in our kitchen and I might even throw this salad in the mix too as it’s like the BLT of salads. I always end up preparing way too much food on these kind of holidays as it is just the two of us, however, the good part is that I don’t have to cook for a few days afterwards in order to clean out the frig!

The BLT salad!

Ken and I hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend and give thanks to all our troups who have kept us safe in the past and continue to do so today for without them we might not have the freedom to have our cookouts and BBQ’s. God bless them all and their families who hold down the home front while they are away! God bless America!
