Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad

8 medium Russet Potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 small onion, chopped
Chives, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Wash and cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Cover with water and boil until fork tender, about 20-25 minutes. Do not overcook!

2. Drain and cool the potatoes. I put them in a separate bowl and once they cooled enough I put them in the fridge to cool all the way. This gave them an excellent texture and prevented the dairy ingredients from getting hot or the cheese from melting. If you are serving this salad hot then you don’t need to cool the potatoes, just skip step 2!

3. Mix the mayo and sour cream together in a bowl. Add to the potatoes, then add the onions, chives, and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste – I use a pepper grinder and a sea salt grinder for EVERYTHING so I never know exactly how much of either I put in. I think the taste is far superior to just use regular table salt and pepper.

4. Top with extra shredded cheese and bacon and serve!

HomeMade Dog Food

So everyone has been asking for this recipe, I know it looks so gross lol but the fur babies love it. It’s easy to make, you can freeze it in individual packages for them too, its a nice balanced diet for them and trust me the LOVE IT 🙂 You can feed it raw or cooked too. You can double this recipe as well.

Homemade Dog Food

What you need

2 lbs lean ground beef 
2 full droppers of CBD oil (I used our 500mg peppermint one) 
1 can salmon with the skin and bones and juice
1 tsp ground ginger
2 eggs
1 eggshell 
1/2 cup broccoli
1/2 of red bell pepper
1/2 cup spinach

In a large bowl add beef, CBD oil, salmon and eggs mix well with a fork, the bones mush well too 🙂 
In a food processor add eggshell, broccoli, red pepper, and spinach, blend well till everything is small. Add this mixture to the meat mixture and mix well together. You can now freeze in individual packages 🙂 As a starting point, feed your dog about two to three percent of his ideal adult weight. So, if he weighs 50 pounds, feed him one pound of food or a bit more. If your dog is very active, you may need to feed a little more and if your dog is more of a couch potato, you may need to feed a little less. Most adult dogs should eat two meals a day so divide into 2 meals 🙂
