Have you tried a potato bar lately?…and Karen's salad dressing

Potato Bar was name of the day for our family gathering last night.
Amy requested it and it's so easy.

green onions
yellow and red peppers
chinese noodles
sour cream

For Amy's favorite punch recipe go here.

 I like a meal where everyone can make it the way they want.  

And maybe even come back for some more Chinese Noodles.

Karen made a salad dressing I LOVE and want to make it again.

Karens Balsamic Vinegarette from Food Network

1/2 c olive oil
1/4 c balsamic
1 T chopped garlic
1/2 salt
1/2 t black pepper
1/8 t dijon mustard

Laurynn had water polo, and Austin had to work, but we did get to have Kylie and Macie with us.
They are seriously such sweet hearts. If you know them at all, you know this.

Chandler found his own way to party. I'll tell you something about Chandler. No matter what is going
on, now matter who is there, he is happy and helpful and never complains about anything. 
Now wouldn't you think he would make a great husband someday?

I heard Richie, age 3, tell his cousin Jonas, age 5, "Squirrels run up trees." 
and Jonas responded, "I know that." 

Leo's thinking seriously about something. He does lots of thinking.

 Richie meant to call my Dad "Great Grandpa" but he said "Big Grandpa" instead. 
Richie LOVES him.

Just 45 minutes before our party, Logan was having this done.
(some sort of growth removed from his head.

So he came with a headache, but he still came. And we were happy to have him.
Nice how they didn't have to shave his head for the surgery.
Our family has become so big that we will have part 2 of this party 
next week with the rest of our local family.

I love a potato bar…but then, I just love potatoes in an form. The salad dressing sounds good, easy, and h healthy!

Looks like another fun time with the family. Hope Logan's headache was short-lived.
