For some reason, I only make potato salad in the spring and summer. I kind of think this is very common with us northerners. In my husband's family, potato salad is one of those favourite recipes that if the boys knew potato salad was being made, they would do anything, to make sure they could make it home and eat at the dinner table. My mother-in-law always made her potato salad in the same big pyrex bowl and just knew the recipe from her head, and the special tweak to add, (a splash of pickle juice was her special tweak).
I think women just knew the important stuff to carry in their head, back then. Today, we are so busy trying to remember passwords, checking our social media channels, I don't know about you, but my head is going to explode. So on that note, I think I will close my computer down, go for a walk and think about making potato salad soon. Here is my video for potato salad. Judy Foodie Video of Making Potato Salad. Here is the printed recipe for potato salad.
Until next time, Keep well,
Well today is a day to open a can of red salmon. It's not an official 'open red canned salmon day' or anything, but I just decided in my computer, kitchen and head, that is what I am doing, so maybe it's my official day!
Yes, I have had a can of red salmon in the back part of my cupboard for several months, but today is the day, I am eating it up. I tend to buy up canned red salmon when I see it on sale, (like mother, like daughter). We can't resist a food and nutrition bargain!
I am a real bread lover but today I am going to skip the bread, (as my mid section is just so squishy these days) and just eat the salmon between two leaves of romaine lettuce as shown in my video called #lunch hacks that ditch the bread.
- The wonderful omega-3s in the salmon are heart-friendly. The nutrition scientists and Registered Dietitians (the authorities I trust) say that the fats make tiny particles in blood, called platelets, less sticky, thus reducing the possibility that they'll clump together to form blood clots that might
obstruct a blood vessel and trigger a heart attack. Oh man!
So all in all, I don't think you can go wrong by adding more salmon or any fish to your diet.
