Best Potato Salad Recipe

Over the past week, my husband have been busy making some tasty barbeque based meals. I am starting out with Dave’s Best Ever Potato Salad!

 I have to say, I think my husband's potato salad has to be the best potato salad I have ever had.  When it comes to potato salad, we usually buy the premade stuff in the store. This home made version if far better.  I could not have enough of this. So tasty.

Here is the recipe for this awesome potato salad.

4 russet potatoes (peeled and diced into bite size chunks)

1 green onion (diced)

3 stalks celery (diced)

½ yellow onion (diced)

3 strips roasted red pepper (diced)


1 ½ cup mayo (or miracle whip)

½ cup yellow mustard

2 tablespoons celery seed

Boil potatoes in seasoned water (salt and pepper) till soft (but not squishy). Drain and cool in refrigerator. While the potatoes are cooling, dice the onion, celery, onion, and red pepper. In separate bowl mix the dressing ingredients. After potatoes are cooled, mix in veggies and dressing. Stir well and refrigerate till ready to serve.

There are many more recipes to come.

Benefits of Tea

 My husband had decided to make some mint tea.  He made it by brewing some mint leaves with black tea. He used 4-5 bags of black tea fresh mint leaves from our little garden-in-a-box.

There are some benefits of drinking tea. Green tea can benefit heart health, like lowering cholesterol and reducing blood pressure. Green tea can also help with certain cancers. Black tea also similar benefits of green tea, except that it has more caffeine in it that green tea. Black and green tea contain flavonoids (which is a new word for me) which I understand it to be high is antioxidant properties.

The benefits of mint tea include helping an upset stomach and could relieve cold and flu symptoms. 
I also made tea using chamomile tea and mint.  Chamomile tea has benefits that including helping to reduce stress and improve sleep.

I knew tea, especially green tea, had some possible heal benefits. I never know how healthy tea could be in prevention medicine.  I usually drink tea as a tasty drink.
