Maw Maw’s Potato Salad is a Southern savory side dish that I wanted to share with y’all! It’s soooo good.
My best friend, Carol Ray, her folks, our 2 fishermen-boy’s, and I just spent a relaxing couple of days in Star Valley, Wy. It was kick-back-country living to the this city girl…
Have you been to Afton, Wyoming? It’s breath taking- just SO beautiful! I tried to capture some of it to bring home and share 🙂
Let me introduce you to Maw Maw- she’s the sweetest little southern lady you ever will meet! (AND she makes a prettty mean potato salad too). Maw Maw and Paw Paw are visiting from Texas for a few weeks, they are Carol Ray’s (center in photo) parents.
We were chillaxing most of the time but I wanted to share some of our outings with you…
Come along with me on my morning photography-run (or walk/run/stop/take pictures and not get much excercise, was a little more like it)…
If you’re ever in the neighborhood, you gotta hit Main Street and maybe give a couple of these restaurants a try…
Don’t cha dare miss the Chowder in a Sour Dough Bread Bowl at Rocky Mountain Sea Food either- YUMMO!!
Oh… and you just might be lucky enough to snap a photo with an awesome classic car like Carol and I, this is a Crosley Metropolitian. (so says Paw Paw who knows every make, model, and year of automobile out there!)
You’ll also enjoy a beautiful little 1 1/2 mile round-trip hike with gentle terrain that the whole family will absolutley LOVE, it’s just up one of the canyons in town called Swift Creek.
This is my fisherman son, Jake…
