Happy 4th From The Cozy Chicks

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck

American Potato Salad 

5 lb. red potatoes, boiled, cooled, cut into small pieces (with or without skins)
5 green onions, chopped
¾ cup chives, chopped
1 cup+ real mayo
Salt and pepper to taste
6 hard-boiled eggs, shelled, chopped

Combine potatoes, onions, chives, mayo, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Fold in eggs. Refrigerate for several hours until chilled.

Enjoy Your Day and Stay Safe!

Hi Cozies...I own every one of Erma Bombeck's books. Her humorous wisdom is timeless. Thank you so much for sharing her take on July 4th. I'm wondering how many of you also enjoyed her writing (I don't think anyone got killed in her books!) and were influenced in some way by her. She was the best and I miss her.
Thanks and Happy, Safe 4th of July to you all as well. Adrienne in hot MN

Thank you for the words from Erma. No one else is ever able to say it the way she did.

YES! Finally, someone else who doesn't put mustard in there potato salad. Sounds like how my mom makes hers, but hers isn't yellow. I like it this way because it isn't sweet. Oh, she also uses 1/2 mayo and 1/2 Miracle Whip (low fat).
