You say potato, I say po-tah-to

Not much going on at the VeStrands today. Mom and daddy are on their way to our house from South Carolina, and so I've been cooking and preparing for their arrival.

I know my whole family would agree that my mom's potato salad is, hands down, the BEST in the known world. And as I was preparing it today, I realized that I've been awfully selfish to keep it to myself. So I've decided to put my selfishness aside and share this amazing recipe with all of you. It's probably nothing earth-shattering, but it is one of my favorite foods and is always a hit with others!


Mom's Potato Salad

4 cups potatoes, diced
1 tspn. mustard
dash pepper
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tspn. salt
1 cup celery, diced

Dice, cook, and cool potatoes. (If you use red skin potatoes, there's no need to peel them!) In separate bowl, mix mayo and mustard then add salt and pepper. Stir in celery and eggs. Add potatoes and stir to coat well.

I hope your family enjoys this as much as the Lenhart clan has for many years and will for many years to come!

Good idea! Maybe I'll make Mondays "favorite recipe day" Guess I'm still feeling unselfish!
