If you want potatoes but not just salad, you could always go the easy route and buy potato chips. I also like to do a bean dish. Here's a fairly easy one.
1 pound of bacon, fried, crumbled
1 pound of ground meat, I used turkey, unless I'm really craving beef
1 can of Ranch Style Beans
1 can of your favorite Chili
1 can of Tomatoes with Green Chilies
2 cans of Butter Beans
1 can of Great Northern Beans
1 can of pork and beans
dash of tabasco, more if you like it hot
1 cup brown sugar
1 T red wine vinegar
3 T liquid smoke
1 cup catsup
1 onion chopped
Dump it all in the crock pot for 2 hours on high.
