Jerry Garcia/Fried Chicken Sandwich Day at the Park

Just got back from Jerry Day in John McLaren Park which is just behind our house. Every year now we've been meeting with our neighbors Ruth & Floyd for a picnic to listen to the various bands. Ruth makes fried chicken fingers and I bring the stuff to make them into sandwiches (good sliced bread, tomatoes, lettuce - grown by Ruth, mayo and mustard) John & Rey joined us and brought chocolate chip cookies - the weather turned out hotter than expected and it's always good people watching at this event - lots of original hippies and wanna be's. I also brought my Pesto Potato Salad serves 6

1 1/2 lbs. small red potatoes
1/2 cup homemade pesto or store bought
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
pine nuts & parmesan to garnish

Boil whole potatoes in salted water about 12-15 min. or until tender. Combine pesto with mayo and sour cream. When potatoes are cool cut into quarters and toss with dressing. Sprinkle with pine nuts & parmesan.
