Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Potato Salad and Vintage Bowl

Yesterday evening I made something that I have made a total of three times in my life. Potato Salad. Now, I've eaten plenty, just not made it. BTW, I do not like the already made up stuff in a tub that you can buy at the grocery store. The recipe I made last year when we went camping at Father's Day called for sweet relish, but I didn't have enough. So, I made a recipe that I found by the Idaho Potato Commission. Potato Commission - Potato Salad. Perfect match!
This recipe turned out great! I doubled it since I was making enough for Hubby's work potluch and our dinner the next night. I used half the amount of eggs though because they aren't my favorite and I used a bunch of green onions because it's what I had.

In addition to sending the potato salad I sent a really cool bowl. Hubby said it got lots of compliments. It's a Texas Ware melamac mixing bowl - brown with confetti splatters. I found some on blogs and Ebay with quite a wide range of prices. It's from the 1950s and was my Mom's. I love it!
The potato salad - it's not as runny as it looks. I don't like runny potato salad!
