Labor Day

We had a fun time this weekend. Annabelle was here for Saturday and Sunday. Sunday night we spent at Kim's friend Kim's house with her extended family for a labor day cookout. Groaning tables filled with great food, much brought by the nice neighbors we met, and we brought Kim's delicious pea salad (recipe below) and we played a game of "cornhole" after. Cornhole is taking  turns tossing bags of of corn at wooden platforms with a hole cut in them. 3 points if you get the bag  in the hole, 1 point for on the platform, and 0 points for where mine landed. It's a Wisconsin game. I'll have to learn more about Wisconsin. It was all a great time.

Pea Salad

2 cans peas. They have to be canned peas. I'm not sure why yet.
2/3 cups finely diced red onion
2/3 cups finely diced English cucumber
salt
pepper
3tablespoons mayonaisse

Mix it all up. Use home made mayonaisse if you can.

Cool everything in the refridgerator before you prep and assemble so that you can serve it as soon as you mix everything. The longer this salad sits, the more liquid leaches out from the onion and cucumber into the mayonaisse making it a bit soupy. Serve it quick!
