Walking Around at Nay Aug Park

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Yesterday I had the opportunity of going to the park with the family, it was such a beautiful and hot day to just be outside. I love going to the park during Summer, I love to walk and seeing the great nature scenery. My daughter Sophia still pretty young but I want her to get used of being outdoors with nature. We decided to go to our local park, Nay Aug. We visited the David Wenzel Treehouse set in the woods overlooking the Gorge. Take a look:

A Different Potato Salad

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

This is one of my favorites dishes to make and it's really delicious too. The apple really adds special crunch to the salad. Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1 pound red potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 gala apple, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper

Directions:
In a medium pot, combine the potatoes and enough salted cold water to cover, do the same with the carrots in another medium pot. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until tender. Drain well, add to a bowl. Add the apples, onion and mayo, mix it well together. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and serve.
