amazing meatball sandwich red potato salad, #amazingmeatballsandwichredpotatosaladRed Potato Salad
3 red potatoes per person
1 egg per person
and a stalk of celery per person
mayonnaise

Cut the red potatoes in quarters and put into a pot.
Cover potatoes with water and boil until the potatoes are tender.
Make hard boiled eggs, peel and slice.
Chop celery into slices. (My children do not like pickles, yet I love the crunch celery adds, and the color)
Once the potatoes are tender.  Drain the water.  Put the potatoes in a bowl.
Add the eggs, celery, and mayonnaise.  Mayonnaise is up to your liking.  I like a lot.
The mayonnaise absorbs into the potatoes when they are warm, so it takes a bit more.
Stir together.
Refrigerate, or serve warm!

This is a perfect meal to take on a picnic!

What is on a the menu at our house?

I get an email at least once a week asking me what I feed my family. Most of them are  just wanting to learn how to cross over from the habit of shopping daily for that days menu plan.  While others are convinced we eat  nothing but processed food.  They see the photos of what I buy that week and can not seem to wrap their brain around the idea of cooking from that weeks promo items and your stockpile.

Some of you “type A” personality’s  are much more organized than me, and I am sure there is a rotation chart or something fancy that would make menu planning easier.  But I do what works for me, I plan my meals around the fresh promo items that I get that week.  As well as what I get in my Bountiful Basket that week.  I then use my food storage or stockpile items, as well as freezer items to plan my meals.

Being that I do not write my menu out a week in advance  I am sharing last weeks menu with you!  Hope it helps you understand that eating from your stockpile can be made a way of life,  is both rewarding and thrifty!
