About this project

Basically I'm just making potato salad. I haven't decided what kind yet. 

UPDATE: BEHIND THE SCENES

UPDATE: THE HOMAGE SHIRT

UPDATE: THANKS INTERNET!

UPDATE: WE DID IT

Stretch Goals:

$35 - I will make 4x as much Potato Salad. I know $40 isn't 4x $10, but you guys have earned it.

$75 - Pizza Party!

$100 - I will try two different Potato Salad recipes.

UPDATE #2: ALL THE POTATO THAT'S FIT TO PRINT

We made the news. Let's keep up the good work! New stretch goals coming soon!

UPDATE #3: WOW YOU GUYS

We're making a lot of great progress. I think it's time for us to think about getting hats made. I added a new donor level for people who want hats. For those who are interested the hats could look like this: http://www.zazzle.com/i_love_potato_salad_mesh_hat-148005376484063142

Stretch goals: 

$250 - Better mayonnaise (from the natural foods section)

$300 - Call a chef to get a better recipe 

$350 - Make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe. 

WE MADE THE NEWS!

NEW STRETCH GOALS: 

$1000: I'll do a live stream of the potato salad making

$1200: I'll pay someone to film a thank-you video for all of my backers!

A BIG STRETCH GOAL: 

We're really tearing through these stretch goals. I honestly don't know what is realistic anymore. So, I thought maybe we try to double the current number? 

$3000: My kitchen is too small! I will rent out a party hall and invite the whole internet to the potato salad party (only $10 and above will be allowed in the kitchen)! The internet loves potato salad! Let's show them that potato salad loves the internet!!

Risks and challenges

It might not be that good. It's my first potato salad.
