For the last month I've been trying to make my mom's potato salad. It's a very simple recipe:
onions (green onions are best)
mustard (for color, jokes my brother Al)
Amounts you do by feel/intuition, like she did.
This past weekend I came damn close. I used spicy brown mustard instead of yellow. And served it with polska kielbasa. Good dinner.
Growing up, on our birthdays, we could have for our birthday dinner whatever we wanted, including the variety of cake. i forget what my brothers' main courses were, but my sister's and my choice was always ringed baloney with fried potatoes and corn. My sister's cake was german chocolate, as was my oldest brother's. Jack, the middle kid, went back and forth from german chocolate to my brother Al's choice, chocolate cake with white fluffy frosting. That was my choice as well, most of the time. But I think for a few years I asked for angel food cake, to my family's dismay.
She sure did do a lot for us.

prune the crepe myrtles shading the plants by the planter
go under the house (note to self: Take your phone! You never know!)
That'll do for now. Have a great weekend, guys.
