A few months ago, a friend's daughter became engaged to be married. I told Ruth that I'd be more than happy to help with food. She needed salads and sandwiches made. Since I make a pretty good potato salad, I volunteered to make one. Then I found out that it should be for 35 servings/people. I researched over the internet for recipes that would help me out. I needed 10# of potatoes. Oh my, that's alot of potatoes to peel, which we find is easiest. Some recipes I read didn't have any eggs or very few to the ratio of potatoes that I usually use. So I figured 18 eggs would work.
My neighbor across the street works at an egg farm and he willingly brings me eggs when I ask for them. He was more than happy to oblige on this occasion, bringing me 2-1/2 dozen eggs. He brought them a week before I needed them. The older the egg is makes it easier to peel. So I put 18 eggs in a covered Tupperware container and labeled it "eggs for wedding potato salad. Don't use or else." (Just because.) I've found labeling items in refrigerator keeps them for getting used for the wrong reason.

My husband, Phil, volunteered to peel the potatoes on Friday morning. He doesn't work til later in the day. So he had time to do it. I did peel 10, with the new peeler I'd bought for the project. I love how this project turned into a family project. What would I do without them? Work more, I guess. But done with love for friends!!
