The girls and I spent the weekend in the pool. It was hot and miserable, and it’s only May! I can’t imagine how hot it’s going to feel once August rolls around. Well, I can imagine; it’s gonna be the type of hot that when you open your door to go outside, it’s going to take your breath away. Living in Florida has it’s perks like a longer swim season, and gardening almost year round, but that heat is awful.
While we spent the days in the pool, Zack was spending the time painting his moms house. Poor guy. He still has to finish up, but he decided that he was taking Memorial Day to himself. Lucky for him, I planned on grilling out and making a delicious dinner! This loaded baked potato salad was one of the biggest hits! I don’t even like potato salad. I got the idea from Pinterest, and thought, “well if I don’t like it, I know that Zack and Kayla will.” I am so glad that we all liked it though. Kayla ask me if I would make up a big bowl for her birthday party next weekend…we shall see! 🙂
If you love baked potatoes, this is the potato salad for you! It tastes nothing like a traditional potato salad at all, and I guess that’s why I like it so much. I love baked potatoes, and this tastes just like one, only better!
