Taste of Home: Kartoffelsalat (German Potato Salad)

There is nothing quite like discovering - at 12:45 am - that you forgot to make the potato salad you need for a pot-luck right after work the next day today.

But let's look at what I accomplished with my "the-glass-is-half-full" mind set:

I need your help decorating my living room!

I can't believe that it's been over 2 weeks since I posted anything.  I started a few posts, but never managed to finish anything.

I'll catch up to my life eventually.....

In the meantime, I was wondering, if I could ask a favor of you:
