Red, White and Blueberry Salad

The Olympics are winding down but there is still time to celebrate. What a better way to celebrate than with a refreshing Red, White and Blueberry Salad. I love the Olympics, always have. The opening and closing ceremonies, the different countries, the flags and of course the Athletes. I can remember watching the Olympics when I was a child on our big black and white TV and then every 4 years after that on our Zenith color TV.

Summer Olympics

My grandson who is 5,  has spent time with us this summer. We’ve been watching the Olympics together and I’ve been explaining to him the ins and outs of the Olympic games. What it means to win a Gold, Silver and Bronze metal. Hopefully, this will start him on a path to watching the Olympics.
Who knows, maybe someday he’ll even participate in the Olympics.

Winter Olympics

Even though the Olympics are not as popular as they once were in the US, I think it’s a great way to teach kids about different countries and to watch people of all age groups and race compete in a competition. My favorite is the Winter Olympics. The figure skating, down-hill skiing, bob-sledding, curling…all of it. I’m looking forward to 2018 when the Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea.
