Seven Layer Salad

We all know how much I mention my mama on my site. And Sadly I cannot be in Georgia or Alabama to celebrate Mother’s day with both of my mamas. This is another downside to living up in Indy. But since I can’t be there I thought I would share this Seven Layer Salad recipe one of my Mama’s that I make for most holidays which has turned into one of John’s favorites.

Heading to a potluck or holiday get together? This Seven Layer Salad will be a crowd pleaser

When we were up here for Easter, both John and Josh (our adopted family member while we all live up in Indy) asked if I was cooking. At first I said no because I cook a big meal for us every Wednesday night. But then I thought this was something I would like to start doing if we aren’t near family. After asking the boys what they wanted they replied either a ham or turkey, John wanted a Seven Layered Salad and Josh asked for Deviled Eggs. So then the cooking began!

First let’s look at this beautiful woman! She is my best friend, my role model, a confidant, a person who has a beautiful & strong spirit and best of all she is my Mama!

And this other beautiful woman is my sweet mother in law. I always hoped I would marry a man with a mother who I could call my own. That was very important to me. She has such a sweet spirit and I am blessed to be a part of her family!
