Remembering American Heroes On Memorial Day

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men and women that died. Rather we should thank God such Men lived.”

-George S. Patton

They would want you to barbecue.

They would want you to go to the lake.

They would want you to go to the beach.

They would want you to pop your feet up open a cold one and watch your kids play.

They would want you to rock out to some live music.

They would want you to camp.

They would want you to watch a parade.

They would want you to have a picnic in the park.

They would want you to go on a bike ride.

They would want you to go fishing.

They would want you to laugh.

They would want you to sing.

They would want you to be with friends.

They would want you to bake a pie.

They would want you to be with family.

They would want you to fly our flag. They would want you to be free.

I want you to understand the cost.... and never forget it.

Favorite Potato Salad Recipe

As many of you know, Waters Choice is based out of Boise, Idaho. Even though our state is known for many things, most think of the POTATO when talking about Idaho. Memorial Day weekend is full of picnics and BBQ.  So we thought, "what better to go with that, then a great potato salad recipe?"  Here's our favorite one just for you!

Potato Salad

  • 3 cups cubed or sliced cooke potatoes
  • 1 tsp shugar
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery (optional)

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 3/4 cup salad dressing (mayo or Miracle Whip)

Sprinkle potatoes with sugar and vinegar.  Add onion, celery, pickle, seasons and salad dressing.  Toss to blend. Carefully fold in egg slices.  Chill.
