Virtual Picnic – Nanny’s Potato Salad

Earth Day is about celebrating the planet that we live on. The Nature Conservancy came up with the idea of having a Picnic for the Planet. They’re encouraging communities around the globe to come together and enjoy the great outdoors, good food, and each other and celebrate the beauty that is Nature this Earth Day.

Getting together with a bunch of your favorite blogging friends, however, might not be very green. We live all over the world, and flying is not a very green way to travel. So instead, we’re having a Virtual Picnic for the Planet.

What would I take to our picnic? My Nanny’s Potato Salad.

My Nanny’s potato salad is legendary. People all over San Antonio know her, and lately, my sister, for it. It’s always been their go-to barbecue, picnic, or potluck side dish.

Chellee, my sister, will tell you that it’s the poppy seeds that make it special. I’ll tell you I think it’s the poppy seeds and the love. My grandmother has made this potato salad more times than I can remember, usually to go along side cold fried chicken, slow smoked brisket, and delicious borracho beans. That right there, folks, is a Texan picnic.

Today is Earth Day. I for one want the Earth to be as healthy as it possibly can be, so that the lives of Chellee’s children, David and Ava, are long and prosperous.
