Potato salad and Memorial Day
Wow. I never realized how unattractive potato salad was until I went look for a photo for it. Actually mine isn't unattractive because I never overcook the potatoes, I use vinaigrette as well as mayonnaise so it doesn't get too mayonnaise-y, and I chop up olives with pimiento and celery in it, which adds color. But I'm sure if I took a photo of it, I would end up with a big white blob. This photo, from the Idaho Potato Commission, isn't too bad. ...
I haven't done anything for food for dinner tonight, and we aren't going anywhere, but I might make some potato salad. I have a craving for it.
One way Dining@Large is helpful to me is that I use it as a personal journal. I went back to see what I ate and what I was doing last Memorial Day. That reminded me that last year people wished me a "happy Memorial Day." Funny. This year people have just said, "Have a good weekend." As though the war part was no longer something anyone was thinking about.
