I really need to get some pictures of things up here. I'm just being lazy about it. For one, I must show off the most amazing pumpkin cookies I made- wow! They're like little cakes with their tops loaded with buttercream frosting. Next I need to show off the ultra girly dresses I am sewing for the kids- they are super excited about them too.
And last I wanted to talk about potato salad. Yes, potatoes.
Apparently, potato salad comes in various forms, and everyone seems to feel it needs to be done their way or the way their mamas made it. Now down here in the South, or at least in my part of it, potato salad is not chunky. It's like mashed potatoes almost.
My mom makes the best and it consists of: russet potatoes, cooked and smashed, mayo, mustard, sweet pickle relish, chopped onion and celery, chopped boiled eggs and the top MUST be dusted with paprika. I add a bit of apple cider vinegar and dried dill to mine.
Now my husband grew up on 'Yankee' potato salad. My mother-in-law has a specific art to it. First, you boil the potatoes whole in their skins till tender. Then you peel and dice them, leaving them in cubes. She uses mayo, diced celery and cucumber, boiled eggs and I'm not sure what else. It's been awhile since she made it around me.
One time she made hers and I made mine at the same meal. They were both tasty, but guess which one got eaten first....mine :) Hers looked prettier though.
Either way, I love potato salad and should make it more often. Just lazy at times. But today I made BIG bowl of it for tonight and tomorrow's dinner. My family loves it as well...I'll be sure to snap a picture before we dive into it...maybe...
So, how do you make your tater salad?
