Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog.

My Simple Recipe for Potato Salad
I love potato salad. I usually purchased a quart of the classic dish from a deli store near us. However when I have the time, I will prepare the simplest but tasty potato salad according to the following recipe omitting the vinegar and using sweet relish in its place.
10 medium potatoes, cooked and diced
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar*
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 celery ribs, sliced
1 cup onion, minced
6 hard-boiled eggs
paprika or hot devil sauce
1 .Boil peeled potatoes in salted water until done. Cool to room temperature.
2. Place diced potatoes in large bowl.
3 Mix mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in another bowl.
4 Add to potatoes.
5 Add celery and onions and mix well.
6 Stir in eggs. Reserve one egg slice for decor on top of the dish,
7 Sprinkle a little paprika or hot devil sauce on top if you want it a little bit spicy.
* Omit the cider vinegar if you hate sour potato salad. Use instead sweet relish or sweet pickles (diced) Enjoy!
