Summer Suppers...

Do you eat "different" during the summer?? 
We do...
We eat lighter and brighter, lot's of salads and vegetables from the garden.
We eat hot dogs and BLT's, pasta salad, potato salad and deviled eggs.

I have not made potato salad in some time and for the first time ever, I used a recipe.
- weird right - 
I use to throw the same ole' stuff in a bowl,
I never measured anything...and it always came out great.
But because I have not made it in some time, and I wanted it to come out really good,
because the hubs has been asking for it, I used a recipe.

Here's the recipe I used...
The only change I made was to omit the relish.


- Ingredients -


- I used 5 Red Skin Potatoes, Peeled -


- I always dice the potatoes first, place in to cold, salted, water, bring the water to a boil,
and cook for exactly 7 minutes after it comes to a boil.
I cooked a few extra eggs to make deviled eggs -


- Don't the ingredients look pretty this way -


- Mix it up -


- Potatoes on top -


- One last toss and yer done -


I make my deviled eggs with mayonnaise, a small dash of mustard, and bacon.


We picked the first cucumber from the garden,


mixed with tomato and poppy seed dressing, it was delish!

and by the way, could that bowl be any cuter?
