Sure, it is an easy one.
1 1/2 lb potatoes(your choice, I like red) cubed
1/2 lb green beans snapped into bite size pieces
1/4C chopped onion
1/2 C Mayo Lite
1/4 C minced chives I have garlic chives in the garden so I use them
4 TBL lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Cook potatoes in salted water 10-13 min till almost done and add beans cook 3 more min. Drain and cool a little. Whisk mayo and lemon add onion,chives and S&P toss with potatoes and beans and chill at least 4 hours or over night.
ENJOY, Cin

It's the usual crowd coming for dinner. The weather here is just crazy. Afternoon thunderstorms everyday for the past two weeks. I don't want to plan to grill soooo it's pork tenderloin, sliced potatoes cooked in gravy, coleslaw and baked apples. Cupcakes for dessert.

Decided to make applesauce instead of baked apples. Now why haven't I been making my own applesauce all this time. So easy.

We certainly haven't been having much of a summer, have we Elaine. Same weather where I'm at. Makes it tough to plan anything outside. Fortunately, my grill is undercover, so either grilled chicken thighs tonight or tacos. Tough call. The sell by date on the chicken is tomorrow, but the hamburger is thawed, too. That's what I get for not cooking supper last night. If I go with the chicken, I'll cook the burger nad seasoning and have tacos tomorrow.

We're having sausage and noodles. It's my daughter's birthday, and that's one of her favorite things, so last night, DH and I made 2 pans...one for her and her family, and one for us.
