Potato Salad with Dill and Capers

Potato Salad with Dill and Capers

It’s summer time, here in the South that means very high temperatures and humidity levels.  It also means our family is busy with swim team practices and meets.  During the week we pack dinner to eat at swim meets Mondays and Thursdays.  Tuesday and Wednesdays we don’t get home from practice until 6 so dinner has to be quick and easy or made ahead.

That’s where this potato salad comes in handy.  I can make it in the morning, because really that’s the best time of day to boil potatoes, and put it in the fridge for dinner later.  We can pack it for a swim meet or have it at home with an entree.

Man Crates Challenge

I have accepted a challenge from the people over at Man Crates. They are a company that makes gifts ideal for men, though I know I wouldn’t mind some of them myself either.

They have a variety of gift packages including themes for the griller, the athlete, the beer enthusiast and so many more options. The best part, the gifts are placed in a crate that the recipient has to pry open. No more boring gifts for the men in your life. The timing is right, my husband turns 40 later this month…a custom over the hill package is tempting!

MAN CRATES MANIFESTO
We say ‘no’ to ugly neckties, cologne samplers and executive trinkets. We don’t save wrapping paper, we don’t do ribbons.

We ship bragworthy gifts for guys. Gifts that you can’t wait to arrive because you know the recipient will love opening them.

Gifts that people gather round at the office, people following the sounds of wood being torn from wood by the included, laser-engraved crowbar.

We are Man Crates, and we deliver awesome gifts for men.
