Pot Luck @ Val's!

I'm busy cookin' chicken and taters but there's already goodies over at Queenly Things . Who doesn't love a pot luck?? The LA Caviar has already been dropped off to nibble on but there's more to come! How fun!

Rosa's Potato Salad

  • Red potatoes cooked (I threw in two Yukon golds for good luck)
  • Drain and season potatoes with salt and pepper while cooling (again, I use Lawry's salt)
  • Dice onions (I had a sweet, purple and scallions)
  • Mix 1 C of mayo and 1 C of sour cream
  • Mix all ingredients together, chill for a couple of hours

Fried Chicken. Well, I'm sure ya know how to do that! I use Lawry's salt as a seasoning and mom always insisted on Crisco oil. So, that's all I got to say 'bout that.

We have wicked storms hitting all around us (sorry kid--wish you were here). Some tornadoes touched down in Pensacola. I was getting ready to leave and pick up my ingredients this morning when the weather warning came over the radio. Bella and I are set to run to the "bunker" just in case we are told to. It is absolutely pouring down rain. Joy. Let's hope it clears before my bud's get here tomorrow. Hrrrumph.

The reason no one answered the door was because they were taking a food break - well some were in a food coma. I tip-toed out to the front porch and snuck a piece. Okay two pieces. So much lovin' from you. Thank you, thank you. Fried chicken is my all time favorite.

We had tornadoes here in west Michigan last evening. The winds today are horrific.
On the brighter side, that fried chicken and potato salad looks yummy!

Oh my goodness that salad looks great! I'm a potato salad nut!! I tried my hand at making one this summer and I failed miserably. That's my opinion...those that I pawned off the rest of the salad to said it was wonderful! Go figure. I guess my potato salad standards are set really high!
By the way...I mailed off your Halloween package on Friday! :D
Have a bootiful day! :D

Yes! Lawry's salt is all you need for perfect fried chicken, and we use Crisco too, my Mom and I.
