Nutrisystem- Potato Salad

Here is another easy and fun recipe for those who enjoy Nutrisystem.
Nutrisystem has over 100 different food choices but they do not have potato salad!

So I made my own and it did not add to the calories or take away any nutrition. It simply just adds another flavor to the Nutrisystem Loaded Potato found on the menu HERE

My mom makes the best potato salad. Hers is always glowing a bright yellow will specks of red and green. Its just a little chunky but mostly the consistency of mash potatoes and always booming with flavor. 

Though I could never beat it, I made this potato salad with my mom's in mind. 

  • Prepare the Nutrisystem Loaded Potato as directed.
  • Add a spoon of each: Green Peppers, Onion, Celery and Pimentos. 
  • Mustard to taste
  • Sprinkle in some salt and pepper.
  • Mix well and place in the refrigerator until cool. 
While the Nutrisystem Loaded Potato is a meal in itself, you can also add this tasty potato salad as a side next to an added protein such as chicken or fish. 
This is another way to get in your veggies.

Mighty Dollar Finds

Being a bargain shopper I can’t find any place cheaper than Mighty Dollar. You know, those dollar stores where everything is only $1.00? You still have to be careful though because you can easily pay a dollar for an item that you can get a Walmart for less than a dollar.

I like to stop in the dollar store about once every couple of weeks to grab small bags of candy to fill my candy dish. I usually grab the creamy chocolaty goodness of Hersey Kisses. Nick will grab a few types of cookies or chips he likes that he can’t seem to find anywhere else. So, the other day we stopped in Mighty Dollar so Nick could grab some unsalted pork skins. He loves those things and this is the only place he can find the unsalted ones. 

That's when I came across some berry boxes.....BINGO!

I have actually been looking for a reusable berry box since I seen them at Krogers while I was at the beach this Summer. Nick always has blueberries in the refrigerator for his oatmeal. He will usually keep them in the thin little berry container they come in, which results in leaking after he rinses the berries off. 

This has worked perfect to keep his blue berries fresh and leak proof. I’m tickled with this find for only a dollar. I may go back for more.

Next, I found these damask pillow covers, so I grabbed two. I have a set of pillows that came with my sofa years ago and I am tired of the dark print that is on them.

I chose the cream color to match the curtains that are hanging nearby. These pillow cases zip on and off for easy cleaning. They are not the best quality, but they will get us by until we find some new furniture, which I hope is soon. Not bad for a dollar.

Before leaving the store I looked over at the kitchen isle and noticed these cute little wine bags hanging on the wall. I dug around in my purse for another dollar and grabbed one of these too. 

Not sure why, but I thought it was darling. It’s made of cotton canvas with a little drawstring. These little sacks would be perfect to use when giving wine as a gift. A bottle of wine is a great “thank you gift” when your invited to a gathering with friends.
