You've heard of too many cooks in the kitchen spoiling something. Well, a few hands participated in this silly creation. Nora didn't seem to mind, though.
Ms. Food Face wears a green Vaudeville-style hat with a ribbon of hommus. It's jeweled with juicy raisins. She models Sweet-Pepper Orange lip-plumping gloss and peaks out behind a potato salad mask secured to her ears with tomato clips.
Ah! It's summer! OK, it's felt like summer long before this in Florida. But we've had a fabulous weekend so far, including but not limited to: swimming in the pool while clouds created shade, watching Nora eat corn-on-the-cob successfully, spending a few extra moments together while we aren't focused on work (Well, I did get up and grade this morning. Didn't want to have to do it all tomorrow.), and enjoying a couple of shorter bike rides on our new-er tandem bike. We're quite the parade with the trailer hitched on the back.
Running low on time and with a cranky baby, I searched online for a simple dilled potato salad recipe. Finally, I realized I was wasting too much time and gave up the search hoping I could make up a good one on my own. It worked! And I was proud to say it was about as simple as I could ever imagine.
Recipe for Dilled Potato Salad
5 small-medium russet potatoes, diced bite-sized
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon lemon
1 teaspoon dry dill
1 teaspoon herbed salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder, optional but recommended
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, optional but recommended
Boil potatoes in water until soft. Drain, rinse in cold water, and drain again. Put in large bowl and refrigerate to cool. When cooler (doesn't have to be completely cold), add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir with a spatula so as not to mash or break the potatoes. Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with sweet peppers, fresh dill, or item of your choice.
