Corn Salad with Frito's

This afternoon I have hijacked the laptop for a little while, this is a much easier way of putting  the blog together!!  Today has been a cook-a-rama!  We not only had The Hens Group but also the Elks meeting tonight and both of these events require...tada....food!

The topic for the Hen's was Italian food in celebration of Spoleto.  Let me tell you these women can cook!  My contribution was Limoncello Zabaglione, do not attempt this recipe unless you have great arm strength as you have to whisk the recipe for a total of 23 minutes.  I think my right arm is going to fall off!  Even with all the mishaps I encountered this morning (and there were many!) this is definitely a do again recipe..

Tonight's theme at the Elks is a beach party...I figure someone else will bring the potato salad and deviled eggs along with the pimento cheese so we are bringing Corn Salad with Frito's.  Yes I know it sounds weird and not so healthy but what the heck its tasty!!!

Corn Salad with Frito's

2 cans yellow corn drained
1 green pepper chopped
1/2 red onion chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup crushed Frito's

Mix everything together except the Frito's.  Chill and put crushed Frito's on top just before serving (this will stop them from getting mushy).

Yes, that is all there is to it!!

My Kindle and I

So I am going to attempt to continue blogging using my Kindle.  I can tell you after just this much writing I am feeling out of steam.  My computer is in our home office which has been the daughters room since the middle of December rendering it basically unusable.  The hubby (thank God for him) has a laptop that he uses for his business and I do get to use it around him but it just hasn't worked with my blogging schedule.

So here we sit the Kindle and I, slowly pecking away at the keys, unable to see most of what I type.
