Facebook is the devil and people are strange. I am completely amazed by how people's brains work or don't work as the case may be and I'm left wondering if I'm the weird one. Is my brain the only one that operates in niceties and with thoughtfulness? It doesn't always, but I'd like to think that most of the time I lean in that direction. I don't use facebook often because I am guilty of over revealing details about my life. One of my most recent status updates proved to be a situation where I should have been thrown in jail and the key thrown away. Something simple kind of ran away from me like a freight train with no brakes and I looked on quietly observing the train wreck that became my life with one simple status update. Okay, so it isn't that dramatic, but I was still left pretty bewildered. Maybe this is why my husband refuses to get on the facebook band wagon.
My son played in a USAA baseball tournament in Yakima, WA recently. During the championship game on a Sunday afternoon Domo was pitching and he tweaked his wrist. A pitch or two later we decided to pull him from the game. That Monday he woke up with a still tender wrist and my husband and I made the decision to take him to the doctor that afternoon. Here's where I'm guilty. My status update from the doctor's office read, and I quote: "
My saving grace is the Lemony Red Potato Salad With Herbs that I made. It's a recipe that I came up with because I wanted something that reminded me of spring long before fresh herbs are blooming and readily available at the markets for an affordable price. You can use fresh herbs as well and I've included those measurements for you. It isn't your traditional potato salad, I wanted something a bit different, and this fits the bill nicely. It's a pretty naked salad; not much going on here besides potatoes in a dressing.
Lemony Red Potato Salad With Herbs
1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces (leave the skin on)
1 Tbs rice vinegar
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 medium green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
Bring potatoes to boil in large pot of water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes. Drain; let stand until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients; toss. Season with salt and pepper.
Chill for several hours.
