Potato Salad

  Every once in awhile there comes a time when we completely take leave of our senses. . . . . or perhaps it is because our senses run, screaming, from us to preserve their own sanity. . . . . . . .

  We were asked by a friend to make some potato salad for a reception.  Okay, doesn't sound too bad does it? Cut up a few potatoes, some celery and onions and mix it all up with mayonnaise and mustard.  Right?
   Just to give you an idea of the few potatoes we had to cut up -

Now imagine the number of potatoes needed to even out this ratio.  
Take a guess and let us know how much you think we ended up having to make and how many people we were making for. :)


  1. 100 potatoes.It is for 60 people. Don't get too tired doing all that work:) Elizabeth M.

  2. Oh, I just noticed I forgot to clarify something - the ratio that needs to be figured out are the boiled eggs (pictured) to the potatoes we had to do.

  3. My MIL made the rehearsal dinners for both our wedding and my brother in law's....potato salad was one of the things she made. I think in both cases she peeled about 100 lbs of potatoes..... :\

  4. Anymore guesses? If not I'll be posting the answer and a detailed post about this venture sometime next week.
