West Texas Style Potato Salad

Jul 1, 2011 by

Most families seems to have potato salad recipes that are passed along from generation to generation. This is my mom’s recipe that’s a family favorite. It’s quick and easy to fix . The pickles give it a nice crunch and combined with mustard a little sweet/tart taste.  In fact, it’s on my Fourth of July menu.  Enjoy!

Making Dreams Come True

My Dad Carl will turn 88 years young this year and he is my biggest fan and supporter. He is the father of four girls with no sons. With five women in the household including my Mom, a strong and powerful women in her own right,  was 100% behind all of us women pursuing our dreams and goals professionally. He was an enlightened man on equality for women way before it became popular for men to do so. I am so grateful to my Dad for this fact as he was way ahead of the times on supporting non-traditional professional careers and roles for women. Thank you Dad, I love you most for ALWAYS supporting me on pursuing my dreams!...

While visiting Billings Montana, to speak to a group of Tire Dealers, I had a spare 2 hours and decided to venture out to visit the Western Heritage Center two short blocks from my hotel.

Dear Lisa, This is the first time I have ever written to an author..so here I go ….I picked up your book serendipitously while traveling yet again on one of my many speaking tours this week about “What Women Want”...and was astounded by your book “Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog”. My personal theme song BTW. I was also born in 1955, am divorced twice and have too many dogs…Your stories made me laugh , cry and I felt like we were 1955 year old soul sisters throughout the book.  We have so many crazy traits in common: 1. I too work at home and write a ton 2. No bras except for public appearances and they never fit right. Was rolling on the floor over Spanks references…I had a trial pair...
