Comfortable Outfit for Running Errands and Last Minute Shopping

I don’t know about you, but I still have to run some last minute errands before the stores are closed for a day. Since I expected that many other people are also running their errands I wanted to be dressed comfy and casually chic. I put my slim cut boyfriend jeans on. I wore them with the oversize cable knit sweater and my Hunter rubber boots. To not get cold I wore a thick T-shirt under the sweater and two pair of socks in the boots plus tights under the jeans. I added my little collar for style. The Camel bag is a gift my husband gave me in the late 90s.

Our Traditional Christmas Eve Dinner

Why am I running errands when stores are full? Usually, I avoid it because long lines, and meeting so many people at the store takes a lot of time. Not actually, what I want when I still have a long to-do list as today. Unfortunately, I had no time to go to the grocery store yesterday. But I wanted to make a Rhineland potato salad with Wieners tonight, and there were also some other things I wanted/needed to do in town.

Despite the original recipe asks for yellow potatoes (there were no other potatoes in Germany) I make the potato salad with black potatoes since we are in Alaska. These black potatoes are Alaska grown, actually we grew them ourselves in our yard this summer. They have a purple skin and are even purple inside. They are the best potato salad potatoes you can imagine.

Rhineland Potato Salad Recipe

Here is my Rhineland potato salad recipe:

Cook 2 lb of potatoes, cool them and slice. Stir 1 large diced yellow onion, two tablespoons Dijon mustard, and white vinegar together. Add the sliced potatoes. Cut 6 slices of bacon into small pieces and fry them until crisp. Then add the bacon pieces plus the hot oil into the potato salad. Add white pepper and salt to taste, and serve with hot Wieners.



Do you have a traditional Christmas Eve dinner in your family? What is it? Let me know, I am curious.

I wish you and your loved ones a peaceful holiday season!
