Recipe Request

At the request of a fellow Wednesday night church cook, I’m sharing the recipes for the potato casserole and the cherry salad that we’re having for dinner this week. We’ve been making these potatoes for 8 years, so we fondly call it “Cheesy Church Potatoes.” The Cherry Salad is a family favorite from Karla that will be a new addition to our menu this year. Her recipe for 10 servings will be multiplied many times for dinner on Wednesday night.
