Homemade Tartar Sauce

So, I can't find tartar sauce at the store to save my life.  I suppose I could have asked somebody.....   Then it occurred to me,  I probably have all the ingredients at home to make it myself!  AND I did!  I decided to look at a few recipes and then create my own.   I'll tell you right now that there have been no food poisoning issues. :):)  In fact it's delicious!  Since it's my own recipe I'm going to name it...

Tartar Sauce Merrill
(because I created it - Merrill is my last name lol )

1 c light mayo
2 T sweet relish
2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 chopped onion (I used dried)
1/2 T chives
salt & pepper to taste

mix it altogether and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  It's better after 3 hours.
will last in refrigerator for 3 days so don't make a ton. :)

I have to say that sometimes in a pinch, I just use Miracle Whip, cut up some pickles, add a little pickle juice into my miracle whip, stir it up til creamy, and serve that instead. My kids and husband love it and its quite tasty! I'll keep this recipe on file as well. Thank you! :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
