Dinner is chicken leg quarters (with attached thighs) grilled with a little hickory smoke. Corn on the cob - picked yesterday. And, I finally got off my ass and made potato salad yesterday, and let the flavors meld overnight in the fridge. 

With some minor variations, I used Felaine's recipe that she just posted here. Tried it just a few moments ago.

Felaine, that stuff is damn good!!!! High five!

Randall, I've not thought of that before, but it is a good question.

Made a turkey meat loaf yest. With all the spices, etc., it's hard to tell it's turkey. I wonder why ground turkey is so much cheaper than cow hamburger? You'ld think raising turkeys would be costlier.

I didn't recognize the unicorn poop.  I wondered what wild kind of food that was.  Didn't notice the link.  Doesn't look very tasty to me.

Pat, the shape of the "Unicorn Shit" cookies looks more like rainbow dog-doo to me. 

As a long-time fantasy fan, I know that unicorns are either equines or some blend of equine and goat, and their droppings (if they leave any at all) would look more like Rock Cakes.  (Actually, I don't think I've ever seen a goat turd....they may resemble the "black beans" that deer leave on our lawn sometimes.  Deer, goats, and unicorns ....and some flowers....)

Just sayin'

Back to potato salad....again.  I was SO hungry for some after all the comments;  Found A NEW (TO ME) style called Loaded Potato Salad.... Here's one recipe:

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled

  • 8 slices bacon

  • 8 oz container sour cream

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • dried chives  (fresh would be better...or scallions )

  • salt & pepper to taste


  1.  Bring potatoes to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes, and allow to cool to room temperature. Dice once cooled.
  2. (I cook bacon in the oven...less mess) Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow to cool, and crumble the bacon into a large bowl.
  3. Place the cooled potatoes into the bowl with the bacon, and mix in everything else.  Refrigerate overnight before serving.
    I also added some chopped black olives, and 3 chopped HB eggs...and sprinkled paprika over it all. 
Anyroad....Great with fried chicken.

Off to the local Mexican grocery store. Dried ancho and passillo chiles. I'm hoping they have some dried espazote, since I want to try a Oaxacan recipe for salsa over eggs.

You know Felaine, when I saw the picture, I honestly thought of unicorn shit before I even clicked on the link. Laughed my ass off!
