Share a Spoon Thursday

"Red, White and Blue"

Happy Thursday Smackers!  Are you ready for the long holiday weekend?  I know I am!  I can't wait actually.  My boys are going to Gramma's.  My sister is moving into her own place.  The 4th is going to be a quiet reflective holiday with just BDC, Belly and MOMMA!  *insert happy dance*

I love the 4th.  We normally have a big party, fireworks, the whole shebang!  This year has been such a whirlwind though, I am looking forward to the quiet holiday.  We can't light off fireworks this year, there is a BIG "No BURN BAN" in place here in Florida right now.  You know, given that everything is already on fire.

We're going to throw a couple of sausages on the grill marinated in BBQ sauce, some vegetables and I will make some of my favorite potato salad.  To make it special I am going to use some Star Spangled Potatoes!

These little red, white and blue potatoes are so pretty!  I love them!

RWB Potato Salad

2lbs red, white and blue small potatoes
1 shallot finely diced
2-3 ribs celery chopped
1-2 medium Kosher dill pickles diced
3 boiled eggs diced
2 teaspoons of dijon mustard
Drizzle Olive Oil
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
Splash of milk or cream
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
Salt and pepper

Boil 3 eggs.  I cover mine with cold water, bring them to a boil and then turn them off.  Allow them to cool down and then I peel them.

Cut the small potatoes in halves.  Boil in salted water until just fork tender.  Don't overcook.

As soon as you drain the potatoes drizzle just a bit of olive oil over the potatoes, along with the mustard and salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, mix mayo, sour cream, celery salt and a splash of milk (or cream).  Set aside.

In a large bowl toss potatoes, diced shallot, pickles, celery and chopped boiled eggs.  Stir in the mayo/sour cream mix.  Sprinkle with celery seeds.


I hope you have a safe and happy holiday with friends and family!  Remember how lucky we are to live in FREEDOM!  Love!

I have never seen potatoes like that before! And I'm so hungry that just sounds awesome.

Can you believe I've never done my own fireworks? Its always been illegal where I live so we've never bought them. This year I'll be celebrating in an area that will allow them for three days. Should be fun!
