Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Here is a recipe I have been wanting to try for awhile.  I have seen a lot of them that use just sour cream in them but we really like the  creamy mayonnaise based potato salad so I changed things up to include mayonnaise in my version of this popular recipe, and I cheated a bit making it by cooking the cubed potatoes in the microwave like I do with my Microwave Mashed Potatoes!

Sesame Carrot Salad (Yes, spriralized)

I have been having a lot of fun “playing” with my new Spiralizer Dillon bought for me.  There are so many different ways to prepare vegetables with it, this is another one of those recipes!

We had this the other night with BBQed pork chops and Chris’ Favourite Potatoes!

Garlicky Cucumber & Radish “Spiralizer” Salad

I got a Spiralizer for Mother’s Day!!!! I guess all my hints paid off lol.  I have been wanting one for what seems like ages but never remembered to order myself one.  Now I have one! I received beautiful gifts from both of my kids… thank you to both of you… as well as from Chris and not only a wonderful lunch at my “in-laws” home but some beautiful cream coloured roses!  I was spoiled!

Since we were having the Mother’s Day lunch and although I was told I didn’t need to bring anything I couldn’t help myself… especially once I received the Spiralizer!!! I had to find something to make and this won out.  I was going to use the same recipe I use when making my usual Cucumber Salad, but this time I tried a different dressing and other than the cucumber and radish spirals being very long and difficult to serve up ( I will have to remember next time to cut them into smaller pieces lol), everyone enjoyed the salad immensely!

BLT Pasta Salad

As I mentioned in my previous post, this is a really busy week for me between Dr’s appointments and other things so I am really not sure if I will even get any sort of crafts done this week.

I am going to be making 3 kinds of soup this week for someone I know who isn’t feeling well and then a carrot cake for a birthday party this weekend, so I will try to fill up the “dead air” lol, with recipes instead and get back to my crafting next week before I start jonesing for a project!

This post will be the steps and recipe I used to make a BLT Pasta salad for our lunch with family this past Monday!  I hope everyone had a safe and happy Labour Day!
