Gosh, those brats look mighty tasty.
Is that corn in the salad?..... I'll bet that would add sweet to the salad!

No corn in the salad....it's chopped hard cooked eggs you see. I added more sugar than the recipe called for, wasn't sweet enough for me. I also deleted the celery seed since Dane said his stomach was giving him a bit of a problem lately. No sense in upsetting him, or his system.

German Potato Salad w/Hot Bacon Dressing
(adapted from multiple web-sites and tried & true experimentation)

German potato salad with a bacon and vinegar dressing. This no-mayonnaise recipe is easy to make and good for picnics. Allow the salad to sit for a bit to soak up the sauce.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:
• 2 1/2 lb. waxy potatoes, about 6 medium
• 6 slices of bacon, chopped small
• 3/4 c. chopped onion, chopped
• 2 T. flour
• 2 T. sugar
• 1/2 tsp. salt, adjust according to how salty the bacon is.
• 1 tsp. celery seed
• 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
• 1/2 c. water
• 1/3 c. cider vinegar
• 3 hard cooked eggs, chopped (optional)
• 2 T. chives and/or parsley, chopped (optional)

Preparation:
Cook potatoes in their jackets 20 minutes or until barely done, drain, peel and cube. Set aside.
Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan and set aside. Add onions to bacon drippings and cook until soft.

Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to form a roux (flour/fat paste for thickening sauces). Let it cook for 1 minute, then add the sugar, salt and celery seed. Add water gradually, stirring constantly so that no lumps form. Add vinegar, and bring sauce to a boil for 1-2 minutes. Add pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Add potatoes and crumbled bacon to pan. Stir and heat until potatoes are heated through. Remove from heat and gently stir in chopped eggs (if using). Put potato salad in a bowl and let it marinate until lukewarm. Sprinkle chives/parsley on top to serve.

Gad! It was 95 degrees today! I, too have 2 ripe avocados that are staring at me in the kitchen. DH went to the beach and called saying he is starving, so tonight we will have carne asada, guacamole, salsa and whatever else he wants.

Just had lightening and thunder....rain supposed to mix with snow early morning.
I think Norm sent it this way. Thanks... I cannot take this heat! It was 49º here today.
I had a box fan in the window exhausting the heat in the house.

There was supposed to be a light dusting last night. Nothing to shovel. I don't see any trace of it this morning so it must have missed us. It is 34º but it is supposed to start warming up after today.

Same here... 34 and stopped raining.
Next few days to cool down....but I think I could put the shovels and snow blower away.

Actually... Tina wants me to put the shovels away, and not leave them on the front porch anytime. she says,"It Looks Like Crap!" ... I said,"Then when it's needed that the walkways and porch needs to be cleared of snow...then you can go get me the shovels in the special shed locker marked "S" for shovels, right next to the locker marked "SH _ T!" Mad

It's tank tops, shorts and sandals for us. Unfortunately, I can't wear the tanks and shorts. Too skinny, too old, too self-conscious.

Oh! No! .... We wear those Big Baggie Winter Coats well into May 10..( Mothers Day).
I said to Tina," Uh, Dear, I think it's about time we shed the coats!"

She says,"Oh No! How are we supposed to Hide?" .... Hide? I said. "Hide What?:

Yeah she said...., "Hide the Winter Fat!" hahahahahahaha

Try 1967....

People say,"Oooo! "You put on some weight over the winter huh?"
I say,"Oh Don't worry!" "With the warmer weather coming, I'll swet most of it off!"

Yeah! Right!" ..... While I have a chili dog in each hand, whilst sitting inside with the A/C on set at 70º, and looking out the window watching the grass grow, and waiting for Tina to bring home the pizza and beer!" hahahahaha

I only weigh 87lbs and I have a gut and a roll around my waist. Putting on weight when you are older is a major problem. It all goes to the wrong places. I wish some of it would have gone to my face and rear end. Some on the thighs and arms wouldn't hurt either.

Cheryle brought some chicken wings so I could cook them for our meal this evening. I spooned them around in a bowl of Sweet Baby Ray's after well cooked and then back on the grill for a bit of browning. Crispy pan fried potato crowns and cauliflower/pea salad completed our meal.
