The Best Potato Salad

On any given morning, you will find me half awake preparing my husbands lunch. It is something I do for him out of love. He doesn't like to interrupt his work day having to find something to eat. So each day I pack his lunch full of his favorites. It is a small way I show my love for him. Because let's be honest, I would rather be cuddled in bed for just a little more sleep. That is what a healthy relationship is all about. Putting someone else's needs before your own. 

Romantic Tip: Take some extra time and prepare a lunch for your love to take on the road. Put a little love note in there letting them know you love them and just wanted to make them smile. 

My husband gets really excited when he finds potato salad in his lunch. I put them in little jars in the fridge for easy access for lunch or snacks. They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach... I believe them! This recipe makes 4 jars of the best potato salad.
