Pacanis, you think like me - make the mushrooms the focal point! Love the side dish of ribeye.

I put a pork shoulder in the crock pot for pulled pork before I left for work...
I was going to make buns when I get home but I think I'll cheat and stop for some.

I'll walk you through it, I make it in stages

scrub about 4 pounds potatoes

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 medium onion, chopped

1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup sour cream
2 t. prepared horseradish
1 T. prepared mustard
1 1 /2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
bacon, 1/4 cup crumbled

2 stalks celery
eggs, hard cooked, and diced

paprika

Boil potatoes until just tender, drain, cool briefly and dice into a large bowl. Mix oil and vinegar and stir in cooled potatoes. Stir in diced onion. Cover and refrigerate a few hours.

Mix mayo, sour cream, (I don't have sour cream today so will use 2/3 cup mayo), horseradish, mustard, bacon, salt and pepper. Stir into potatoes. Add chopped eggs and celery. Stir until blended. Dust with paprika (I will use smoked paprika)

If you do not use bacon, increase the salt added to 2 1/2 t..

Any questions? I cook the potatoes with the skins on and leave them on for the salad. Usually use reds or yukon gold potatoes..

Great recipe Beth, I'm looking forward to trying it soon.
Don't know what we'll have tonight. GF's mouth is still very tender from unexpected tooth extractions. Maybe some sort of overcooked pasta dish to make things a bit easier to swallow.

Think I'll do a pork tenderloin with a fresh orange and cranberry glaze. Not sure about sides yet.
