Red, White & Blue Potato Salad

Red-White-Blue-Potato-Salad-1b.jpg

“Campfire Potatoes” with @LandOLakesKtchn Olive Oil & Sea Salt Butter

Campfire-Potatoes-in-Foil.jpg

Fruity-Summer-Shrimp-Salad-10.jpg

Have you ever taken a Zumba class?  Oh my goodness!  SO.MUCH.FUN. I used to take jazz dance classes when I was a kid.  I was totally the chubbiest little girl in class, but whatever, I loved it.  I wasn’t a dancer, per se.  I just took dance classes.  Well, class.  Once a week.  And sadly…
