I dropped hubby off at the airport today. He's on his way back to Wisconsin for a 2 week trip. He's going to do some hanging with friends, go to the EAA (the Experimental Aircraft Association) Show, the biggest air show in the world and a few other things. He's also planning on spending the first week of August at the day camp for mentally handicapped adults our family volunteered at when we lived up there. We're all jealous - but I think I'm going to be working at the special olympics bocci ball tournament on Aug 1, so I've got that to look forward to.
I made potato salad last Saturday and it turned out really good. For some reason, I'm inordinately proud of that fact. I've never made potato salad before since everytime I've had it I either love it or hate it and I've been afraid to make it in fear that it'll turn out to be the yucky kind and we'll be stuck with this huge bowl of awful tasting potato salad. So when we went to a potluck last Sunday and I was asked to bring a salad, I figured I'd cut loose and try to make it. I found a recipe at allrecipes.com, my favorite recipe site, had to improvise a bunch of ingredients because I thought I had them, then found out I didn't in the middle of making it. But, even with all my substitutions, it turned out really good - Angel #2 even asked me to make it again, which is amazing in itself because she's like Mikey from Life cereal, she hates everything. But Mikey liked it and so did I. I can make great bread, pies and cookies but edible potato salad just thrills the pants off me. It's those little victories in life, ya know?
