It was totally worth it. I didn't have to cook for the rest of the week. And there were leftovers for other people. LOTS of other people. At multiple organizations.
And, more importantly, I finally got to try out my great-uncle's potato salad recipe from the family cook book.
TILLERY'S POTATO SALAD
Cook 5 to 6 potatoes in boiling, salted water, til tender when pierced.
Boil 4 to 5 boiled eggs in salted water.
