You Say Potato, I Say Po-Yum-Oh

I started writing this post twice, with two different topics. This can’t bode well after only doing this Bagwine writing gig for two weeks.

I want to be funny and clever all the time but who the hell can do that?

I know…I know…I am trying too hard. I realize this, but I want to be good at this. Fucking good. Matt-Man good. I will be, but…

It will take time. So bear with me, and in the meantime, with the 4th of July picnics looming, try my recipe below for my easy, most awesome potato salad…


Red Potatoes

Green Onions

Sour Cream

Bacon

Spicy Brown or Dijon Mustard

Cube potatoes, and boil with salt (kosher if you have it, Moses likes it that way). Do NOT let the spuds get mushy. Drain.

Add green onions. The green part only mind you…unless you are one of those freaks that enjoys the white part.

Add a 16 ounce tub of sour cream. Just the sour cream, not the plastic tub itself.

Bacon. Lotsa bacon. I use an entire bag of real bacon pieces. It’s much easier that way.

One squirt (it is a technical term, you amateurs) of mustard. I use only one squirt because I find it overpowering and like the sour cream to stand out.

Mix and refrigerate for a few hours, and then…

Enjoy, Bitches!! (No Mayo, Jay!!)

Don’t forget…Only five more days until Matty-Boy’s big announcement.

Zoooooves!!

That looks delicious. But, if I ever come up there to visit you don't have to make this for me. No, no, no. I don't want you to go to any effort. Really, it's okay. Looks great though. ;-)

There is no other way to make it Schmoop. I like potato salad in general, but yours is aces. Cheers Schmoop!!

'clever all the time'

Give up now. It's impossible. Sometimes you just have to post some boring stuff. Like recipes.

Jay: I will make this for you, and bring my own soap;)

Matt: Thanks babe! I'll make some for the 4th!!

Mike: Ha! Good to know, boring it will be;)

Po-Yum-Oh is actually an Apache term meaning "me like-um spud salad heap good!"...

Beth said...

Phrankie: BWWHHHAAAA! I can always count on you to make me spit my coffee at the screen!!

That sounds yummy but evidently I'm a freak (duh) who likes the white parts of spring onions.

Knight said...

Wait, DON'T put the plastic tub in? Well then what in the hell am I supposed to do with it?

Beth said...

David: I don't think you're a freak, I just think the white parts look like alien heads. Wait...I must be the freak.

Knight: I know, right? Matt makes me throw them away. Asshat.
