My Bountiful Basket full of Sides

My assignment for Fathers Day was sides.  I decided to wait for my weekly Bountiful Basket and let it guide me.  Check out the yummy stuff I made!  With a little help from Pintrest and my buddy Google.

The Baked Potato Salad was a huge hit!
5 large russet potatoes (from my basket)
1 1/4 cup mayo
1 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 hard boiled eggs (no yolks)
8 pieces crispy bacon 

boil eggs and potatoes cut into small pieces
combine all ingredients refrigerate and enjoy!

My family loved this!

Fruit Salad
I cut up and combined many of the yummy fruits from my basket.
Watermelon, grapes, nectarines, peaches, banana, pineapple, and a cantaloupe I already had!  Yippee there were left overs for me to enjoy this week in my lunches.

Cucumber Salad
This was super easy slice one large cucumber thinly add ranch dressing and toss.  For garnish I created a cucumber whale that I had pinned.

The real reason for the yummy food a Fathers day gathering.  Billy made the yummy kabobs and steaks, while Chrissy and Sydney created an amazing peanut butter brownie dessert.

Alzheimers Walk

Hi Friends and Family, This October I am walking in the End Alzheimer's Walk. In honor of my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary and my amazing Grandma, as a family we are walking and fundraising in their honor. We watched my great grandma fade away because of Alzheimer's, and now we are watching my grandmas light fade away. The funds we raise will go to treatment and research. Hopefully this will help my grandma and help guide treatment to minimize the risks on future generations. As many of you know I have walked in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in the past in honor of my grandma Momma Lu. Now it is time for equal grandma time and to share my efforts and fundraising ability for my grandma Rainford. I would appreciate your support through donations, we are hoping to raise $2,500+ as a team. Please follow this link and support or join us. Don't forget to help out team 7 Dwarfs
