Oy vey, it's almost Christmas and I'm too full to move....

What on earth ever possessed me to each so much potato salad? Well, it's my Mama's recipe and for the record, today marks the umpteenth time I've attempted to copy it and I finally got it right!
Oh yeah, it's one of those put a little of this, eyeball this much mayo and mustard, take off all your jewellery and dig in with your hands to mix completely kind of potato salad recipes. WOOT! I SO ROCK!

My Mama makes the best potato salad in the world! Seriously! If you want the recipe, email me and I'll send the list of ingredients, vecause that is all one needs, oh and putting it together in the correct order, I swear that's what makes it taste so good. How does THAT work?

I'm a firm believer in the order of things in life. For instance, when you make a sandwich at home, one layers from bottom to top in this order : meat, cheese (optional), lettuce, tomato, other salad type ingredients. When one goes to a Subway, for instance, they now put all salad type ingredients on the bottom, mayo in the middle, then meat on the top. People tell me to just turn the bread upside down. Have you ever noticed that the seasonings on the Subway bread are on THE TOP? Well, then the meat should go on the farkin BOTTOM!!!! It does NOT taste the same. Trust me. Make 2 sandwiches, one with the way I told you to make as above, then make another as they make in all the sandwich shops now....then taste. See what I mean?

When corporations started years ago to change the way hamburgers, subs, and other sandwiches were made, they changed the order of the universe. Now we are reaping what they have sown. Our Universe is screwed up!!! Global warming happened, polar caps are melting, Hurricanes destroyed our planets most famous city (and my personal favorite, New Orleans), and people wonder why. Well, call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but it all goes back to the upside down sandwich.

Are they (Subway) really putting the salads first now? I haven't been there in ages, but that would make me do a double take too.

Yep, they cut open the roll, turn it around, put the meat and cheese on, then heat it if you like then put the salad on it, then put the mayo or dressing in the middle so its like the new burgers with the meat on top. It's truly weird to an old school sandwich maker like me... I remember having to take classes on how to make a good sub when I worked for Sub Station II.
