So this has nothing to do with support-raising and ministry but I thought I’d share anyway. I participated in a multicultural event where we all had to provide a food from another culture and I selected German potato salad because I can remember having it as a child and liking it. I haven’t had it in years but I found a recipe online and hoped that it was like the one I had had when I was younger. I made it (and I am not a  cook) and it was really good. Jay even requested that I make it again the next night because he only had a taste before I had to take it out the door to the multicultural feast.

Here’s the recipe if you want to make it. Make sure to use a good firm potato. I prefer the red-skinned ones.


  • 9 potatoes, peeled
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 30 minutes. Drain, cool and slice thin.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside, reserving drippings.
  3. Saute onions in bacon drippings until they are golden-brown.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, celery seed, and pepper. Add to the sauteed onions and cook and stir until bubbly, then remove from heat.
  5. Stir in water and vinegar, then return to the stove and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for one minute.
  6. Carefully stir bacon and sliced potatoes into the vinegar/water mixture, stirring gently until potatoes are heated through. BEST SERVED WARM!
