This is the last of my posts related to C’s second birthday party 🙁 Now to start planning her third, right? I knew that things were going to be rush rush that weekend, so I decided to cut a few corners when it came to the barbeque sides. Is that a ’tisk tisk’ I just heard? Well I never claimed to be Super Mom… you just assumed. Ha!
It turned out to be a fantastic decision because hubby was offered some last minute overtime; 12 hours the day before the party and 6 hours the day of. Since turning into a one-income family, OT is always a good thing, and as busy as I knew that it would make me prepping for the party while entertaining the Princess, I had a trick or two up my sleeve.
No purchased potato salad would ever be as good as homemade, but this Stonemill Kitchens Red Potato Salad that we bought at Costco was pretty darn good in a pinch. We’ve noticed it being sold there for quite a while and generally if they keep selling something at Costco it’s of decent quality. The initial bite was a tangy one, like most store-bought salads, but the bite ended on a sweet note, which was quite nice. The potatoes themselves were tasty as well, they had a good sized dice, they weren’t too soft or too hard, and their red skins remained intact.
I doctored it up with some quartered hard boiled eggs, some chopped green onions and a sprinkle of paprika on top and… Voila! Mommy Cheats!
I wish that Costco would sell some of their other products; I was browsing their website and they have some yummy sounding dips as well. Time to get email writing I guess 🙂
I received no free product or compensation for this review, it was done out of the kindness of my heart and the curiosity of my stomach.
