Marvelous Monday #100 with Red, White and Blue!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Our party turned 100 today!  I'm celebrating both by featuring some red, white and blue recipes from last week...

Shocking but so far since Friday our weather has been absolutely fantastic!!  The DIY Guy went fishing on Friday to the mighty Mississippi and caught some wall-eye.  That night our daughter, husband and cutie pie Emily arrived and we had dinner on the deck.  Yesterday we went canoeing at a local lake and today we hung out and went to a park with Emily.  Our younger daughter is on one-girl vacation to Glacier Mountain and other western sites.  I was a bit nervous about her traveling alone and camping but her camping neighbors happen to be a family from St. Paul MN so that makes me feel better! 

I'm not sure what we will be doing tomorrow but I do know that I can officially wear white now - hehe - anyone remember that saying that you can only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day?  I do!  And speaking of white - pair it with some red and blue and here you go for some patriotic recipes!
