Glad you found the blog! Your humour is always appreciated :)

I just happen to have a stack of change that I found in a pair of Handsome’s pants before I ironed them and there is a South Carolina quarter! So I’ve set it aside and once I can find an envelope I’ll post it off to you :) No need to send the California quarter. Consider it payment for teaching me to cut an onion properly.

Potato Salad and Summer Berry Trifle

On  Saturday we had a housewarming party, starting from 3:30pm and ending about 8pm. The invitations said that if guests were around at 5:30 they would also get a BBQ dinner. Not surprisingly many people came just in time for dinner :)

One recipe that I made was for Classic Potato Salad. Honestly, nothing fancy, but it always gets rave reviews. I’ll post it here on the blog so in case I don’t have my cookbook with me, I can always find it. (edited to add: I’m too lazy to actually type out the recipe, so just click on the link below. Or if you have the red and white cookbook that every American family has, it’s in there.)

And another fantastic recipe that I just tried and people were coming back for seconds was Summer Berry Trifle. I found this at Kraftfoods.com  and will definitely be making it again. Not inexpensive, but definitely a great dessert. A few ways to make it lower calorie, if you wish to do so, would be to use sugar-free gelatin, low fat Cool Whip, and Neufchatel Cheese, in place of the cream cheese.  I used the sugar-free gelatin and it was just fine.
