Okay. I AM a sucker for punishment. I don't enjoy learning things the hard way, but I seem to do it a lot. I like potato salad. I don't know why mine is 'special' but many people have raved about it.
Until the other day, at least.
I had everything set, plans well laid out. Hubby was going to grill us some burgers and I was making potato salad for our friends who were joining us for dinner. The potato salad was part bribe in this case as we needed some help with a project in the house. I was cooking away getting things ready, and got a phone call... that led to checking something on the computer... which led to checking my email, then work email, then working.....
Potato soup, anyone?
I boiled those potatoes until they mashed themselves!! Beyond salvageable. You know how the water gets really starchy if you boil them too long? Well this was a BIG pot of starchy mush. Perhaps if good old grand dad took out his teeth? No, I think he had better taste too...
Lesson learned.... Wendy Can't Cook and work at the same time!
Thankfully, our friends still stayed to help us. I gave up for the day and we just settled on burgers. No sides.
