Marie's (my mom) Green salad

Stormy Stewart


Sometimes in the summer on the weekends my Mother would make a green salad to go with dinner. Her's was a special salad. My dad whould roll his eyes at her but she made them anyway. "He would usually say something like "If I knew what you were going to do with those roses I well......."

Picture taken in Panama City Beach,Florida where they would spend the winters after they retired.
