I blame you for the ribs and wings!!

Should hold us for a day or so, but not making tons of each, just a little of each so there is variety.

Yeah, nice. A little of each sounds great. So does the potato salad. I've gotta learn how to make that... that and macaroni salad.

Thanks! Should be great fun for the kids, and I thought a movie outside would be neat for them.
Here is the potato salad recipe I am using:
2lbs red potatoes
1c chopped celery
1 medium chopped Vidalia onion
5 eggs
3tsp celery seed
3tsp dill (I am thinking dill seed not the dill weed)
1/4tsp salt
1/4tsp pepper
Then for the salad dressing part:
1c salad dressing (some use mayo I am using Miracle Whip nockoff)
3tbsp Bavarian sweet mustard
2tbsp sugar (I reduced from 3 since I was using salad dressing not mayo)

I hope it turns out as good as it sounds! I am still working on a good macaroni salad recipe, haven't found one I really like yet.

We are going to a potluck tonight and I am taking a warm steak & spinach salad. Don't know what else will be there because we do this twice a year with the same group and make it a true potluck (no assigning of courses or checking what others bring). So far they have all been great with little overlap!

That recipe does sound good, Mav. What does Bavarian mustard taste like? Sweet, spicy?

A movie outside. Cool idea. Kids don't know what they are missing.
Maybe you could set the laptop on the hood of your old Caddy and run the speakers through the windows Tell 'em this is how we used to watch movies.

Oh, so what do you do with the spuds to keep them from turning black? Cook and chill right away? Do they need lemon juice?
