Celebration Salad

Valentine Friend

Valentine’s Day is all about
Special feelings warm and fond,
And friend, I knew right from the start
We had a very special bond.
Our time together is a gift;
You’re interesting and warm and fun!
And when I need to talk and share,
I think of you, friend; you’re the one.
We’re always true and real together.
We have no reason to pretend.
I’m thankful that you’re in my life,
My trusted, cherished Valentine friend.

Tea, flowers and sweets...all that we need as friends for Valentine's Day. I used to make a similar salad that had sour cream in it.
Happy Valentine's Day Clara.

Happy Valentines Day, Clara! What a pretty setting; love the OCR garden mug! Of course, the OCR pattern is always a delight is see.
Your salad looks and sounds wonderful. I have one quite similar but I use sour cream instead of whipped topping and the milk. I like the pink too, I will have to give this one a try. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely day tomorrow.

Just beautiful! I LOVE Old Country Roses! That is a favorite salad of mine...I make it when we have friends over, because my honey is not too fond of it and that way I won't eat it all myself! LOL!
So pretty!
