Last Sunday Eatings

This is my post for tomorrow Friday but I can not figure out how to do the delay thing so here you go and you can save it for tomorrow if you want. Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!

Well our plans for last Sunday changed... no company for Clam Chow'da.
So we put that off till another time when all can attend.
DH had already thawed the chix wings out for lil one so decided we would just eat those .
He did a seasoned flour on them and fried them up.
We also had potato salad and roasted up some fresh asparagus in oven with olive oil and salt and pepper.
I made the potato salad.
It is an easy enough recipe to do that can be changed in many ways.
Here is my basic recipe.

Lola's Potato Salad
2 pounds potatoes, new red, white, bakers or Yukon, my fav
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 hard-cooked eggs, peeled, chopped , sometimes I do, sometimes not
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped sweet onion , or reg yellow, just make sure not to strong
1/2 to 1 cup Dukes mayonnaise , depends on how it mixes up
1 to 2 teaspoons prepared mustard ( have also used Dijon which is different but good)
1/2 cup chopped Clausen pickles, you can use sweet too or relish, some also use a lil of the juice in the mayo mix
salt and pepper, to taste
a small shake of celery seed
fresh chopped parsley or dill, optional
paprika or bacon bits
Peel potatoes and cut in 1-inch cubes, sometimes with red ones I don't peel just wash good. Place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and boil potatoes until tender. Drain and let cool. Combine potatoes with salt ,pepper, celery, onion and pickle mix well. In a bowl combine mayonnaise and mustard with celery seed, dill or parsley. Spread on the potatoes mix and toss gently till fully covered. If using, add chopped eggs and gently toss for last time, so you don't break them up too bad.
Sprinkle paprika or bacon bits over top. Serves 6 to 8

DH also decided to go ahead with the Apple Cobbler for dessert.
We had it warm out of oven with Cool Whip. Weekend is soon upon us once more , have no idea what DH may decide we will have to cook up!!
