What--has everybody quit eating? (little activity here)

Eating off a rhubarb/blueberry pie. Good, but I burnt the graham cracker crust in my little convection oven. Vanilla yogurt makes a good topping. In fact, yogurt is used for all my fruit dishes. I alternate between plain, Greek, and the aformentioned vanilla. Yummy--and good for you.

Randall, glad you liked the casserole. I previously used small red potatoes in making P.S., but now I use Yukon Gold. They're firmer and I think give a better texture to the dish.

I have some "new" potatoes coming on, so I may have to turn them into P.S. It takes a lot of work, however, and I'm a lazy chef (I use the term loosely).

Pat, the brocolli casserole turned out wonderful. I used chicken soup. Thanks for the idea. And I'm with Patricia on the carrot infused jello salad. So gross!

You're absolutely correct James. The best potato salad I ever had in my life was in a restaurant in a small German village named Mutlangen. Boiled potatoes sliced thin as American potato chips with vinegar and a few herbs. Having come back to the US, I've had several versions of "German Potato Salad." Not a one has ever come close.

I made some deviled eggs for breakfast--the easy way.  Just put all the ingredients in one bowl and cooked them.

I was thinking of throwing in some potatoes and making a potato salad, but I'll try that another day.  A good potato salad is a favorite of mine also.

Actually, Pat, potato salad is one of those "wide open" recipes you can experiment with and make just any old way until you find the one you like best. I prefer mine with lots of mustard in it. But my favorite recipe comes from the Cotton Country Collection published by the Junior League of Monroe, La. It contains, in addition to the boiled potatoes, mustard seed, celery seed, vinegar, salt, diced hard boiled eggs, lots of green onions, mayo, and chopped pickles. Taragon vinegar works best, and instead of putting the whole seeds in, I pulverize them in a spice grinder. Potato salad is a favorite thing.

Daniel, you've inspired me to make potato salad this weekend. Pretty simple with eggs, bacon, a little mustard powder, onions, celery and bell pepper.

Like Randall, I' don't recall the Jello songs either, but I certainly do recall Jello, and the horrid Jello salads my step-mother used to make. As good a woman as she was, in the kitchen, she could burn water. Reminded me of the jello salad in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Randy, the "bathtub full of lime Jell-O" song is a very inside-type joke in Science Fiction fandom.  Pre-Star Warts....  It was never widely known outside the small world of filk-fans within SF fandom. 

Comment by Randall Smith on July 11, 2014 at 6:58am

I don't recall those old jello songs, and I'm old enough. I do remember the jello commercial: "This week is National Jello Week, tell everybody you know. And don't, don't, don't let the week go by, without J-E-L-L-O!

I forgot to mention that one reason "The Ballad of Lime Jell-O" has stuck in my mind all these years is that my father LOVED anything by Gilbert & Sullivan.  H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado were his favorites, but he had ALL of them...78 rpm albums. 1943-44.

Some of my earliest memories are of standing on a footstool, watching the records spin on the turntable...singing along with the ones I knew the words to.  I was about 3 or 4. 

The Nutcracker was one of my faves, too.  Odd thing...my first year in Holiday, that was one of our biggest production numbers.  I was a Sugar Plum Angel, and some kind of flower (I forget which one...I'm a semi-shortie, and the tall girls were the roses, the next tallest were calla lilies, and the very shortest were violets. I may have been something tacky, like a geranium.  FEH!)  We called that particular number "The Pansy Patch"...it went on and on forever.  Bloody long number!
