To those of you who share a country with me, Happy 4th of July!
(yes, I realize there are some folks elsewhere who view this date a little differently, lol)
I wish you a safe and enjoyable day...celebrate with thoughts of food safety and plenty of sunscreen! Those of you who are in my poor drought-stricken state, please be aware of the fire dangers and the poor frazzled nerves of the nervous doggies and people!
I actually tried making potato salad with microwaved potatoes, and it worked well, although I wonder if it is a little more creamy than usual. I am weird in that I like to actually taste chunks of potato in my salad. I am a no-frills potato salad person...so, I microwaved 5 medium-sized potatoes, boiled 3 eggs, cut up sweet pickles and added mayonnaise, a small squeeze of mustard, pickle relish and stirred. One of my friends is dealing with heart issues, so I set her portion aside before I added salt to the remainder of the salad. Tasted fine to me...although I tend to be pretty light on salt anyway.
I remind those of you who want to support our troops that there are many organizations to help those who serve. They include:
I am always too shy to walk up to those I see in uniform and thank them for their service, but it is definitely appreciated, so be braver than me and greet a soldier!
