And The Little Lady Makes The Salads

Looks to me like when the men are in charge of the barbecue, the lady of the house need only to make a salad. That's how they did it in Dennis Day's back yard:

And here, as long as there's plenty of beer on ice - a nice big salad rounds out the meal nicely:

Mom, in her pretty skirt and peasant blouse, contributes the salad on this patio, too. (Her waist looks so tiny, I think she eats ONLY salad!)
And the little lady brings the salad out.....

Enjoy a balanced meal tonight - and with any luck at all, you'll only have to make a salad!

I'm not that little but I can make a mean salad! Looks like the little girls in photos 3 and 4 have the same dress on. Cute post. Love T

My Mom actually did most of the BBQ'ing when we were young but now, I have a husband who does it....often, and I only have to make the salad. Works for me.
Love the pictures.

I just love the way they used to portray the ideal family. It has finally cooled off enough her that we can think about BBQ-ing again. 88 degrees and low humidity, woo, hoo! Salad sounds good! Have a nice day! Twyla

Love this post, Heidi!

I'm always drawn to vintage imagery, but I especially enjoy the ones that depict such an idealistic lifestyle. Then, again... I guess they sort of ALL do, huh? Well, anyway. You know what I mean. ;)

Great Summery fun, too!

This type of 'happening' still exists I'm not ashamed to admit.

I do the grilling on Friday and Sunday night, and my beautiful wife can add on a salad or whatever inspires her to complement the main dish (grilled beef/steak/chicken).

My 6 children and one spoiled grandchild (when present) seem to enjoy it almost as much as I. What a great time to spend with my family!

Thanks for your always interesting blog.

God Bless!
