Back in the olden days, potato salad was cubed boiled potato (probably left-overs) mixed with Heinz salad cream.
I went to the USA to stay with my friend. The day after I arrived in Washington State, we headed south to her friends to go to a Bob Dylan/Tracy Chapman gig in a vineyard.
I helped with lunch and the friends asked me to make a potato salad, cubed potatoes, mayonnaise and then – what? Chopped hard boiled eggs? Chopped scallions, aka spring onions, cubes of cheese? Herbs? Ham? What? It was a revelation and I’ve made it like that ever since!
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
