Once upon a time about 17 years ago, I tasted the best potato salad I had ever tasted in my then 13 years of life. My mother, who had lived longer than I, also tasted said potato salad and thought to herself, “I must have this recipe. I will ask the person that made it!” To which the person who made it replied, “no.” The details after that are a little fuzzy, because the recipe for the potato salad was indeed acquired and I’m about to share it with you. So be profoundly grateful, this could have not been the case…had someone/something not said/happened to change that “no” into a “yes.”
I have always enjoyed cooking! I can remember as a 5 year old I would sit in my grandmother’s yard with her decorative outdoor pots (it’s a thing) and gather anything and everything that resembled “that looks like it could go in soup,” and dump it in with some dirt and water. Mud soup was my specialty. These days I’m making more edible dinners for the fam and this Turkey Chili has become a favorite.
