Our Simple Pleasures

celebrating life one moment at a time

It has been downright brutal here in Minnesota this month.  Polar Vortex Schmortex. I’m done.  Yes, I have certainly enjoyed the 5 additional days off from school this month, but I am ready for spring. I certainly loved every extra day I got to snuggle with my little ones.

Potato salad…I never make it the same way twice and I have tried oodles of different recipes, but since this month the Pioneer Woman has yet to let me down, I tried her perfect potato salad.  Wow.

As I set out to make this, I saw that she used a potato ricer.  Ahhhh.   I had one of those.  My Grandma bought me one for Christmas a few years ago, and just recently Kirby pulled it out and had been carrying it around like a toy.  So I followed her recipe all except for the sweet pickles since I didn’t have any.  It was absolutely delicious.  Hubby even emailed me from work today saying that he was thinking about potato salad.  Yep, it was that good.

Then, to top off the meal, I made hamburgers, piled them high with crumbled bleu cheese and onion slices.
