Best Ever Baked Beans and Potato Salad

Best Ever Baked Beans 

These are awesome because they are good both hot and cold. I make them the night before and my family each makes their way to the fridge and helps themselves. These will be the talk of the picnic. 
3 large cans of Bush's original baked beans 
1 8oz. can of pineapple tidbits drained
1 cup molasses 

2 TBSP mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar

Stir all of the ingredients and bake at 300 degree for two hours. Cool down and put in the fridge or serve hot. 

Potato Salad

8 medium sized potatoes
1 cup Hellman's mayo 
3 stalks celery diced
1 small onion diced
3 eggs sliced 
1 TBSP salt and  1/4 tsp pepper

Boil the potatoes with the skin on for 25-30 minutes with enough water to cover them. They are done when a fork goes into them but not all the way through. The potatoes should have some give to them. Cool them down and remove the skins. Slice the boiled eggs, dice the celery, onion, and potatoes and add to a large bowl. Add the mayo, salt, and pepper. Stir and check for seasoning. The potatoes will soak up the mayo and you may need to add more before serving. 

If going to a picnic keep it on ice until ready to serve or you may substitute sour cream for the mayo.
