Is it weird that I suddenly want potato salad for breakfast?
Nope. It sounds like a great breakfast food to me. I just wish we could get bacon in South Dakota. Can't get anything but those packaged paper-thin strips of fat. The nice thick cut stuff disappeared years ago for some reason. I haven't had bacon for breakfast in probably 8 or 10 years. Same thing with bulk breakfast sausage. I used to love to make sausage patties for breakfast, but now I either have to grind my own or buy the links.

I am thinking it's going to be really hard to screw the recipe up if all the ingredients are in there.
Oooooh, CREAM, that would be fabulous. I'm betting the flour was sprinkled on the cooked onions and bacon and stirred in, then the cream added (to make a kind of roux), then add the potatoes and stir it all together. Oh, yeah, that would be VERY good!
It's been a LLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGG winter RACE fans ! Andnow it's to fire them Mothers up for
" The " Great American Race ! Yes my friends ! It's time for the Daytona 500 ! Starts at 2:30 this afternoon and On Fox's - Over the air !
So what happened? Did they ever get going again, or did they cancel it for the day? I haven't watched NASCAR for so long, most of these drivers' FATHERS were still young men. But I decided to watch this one, and ended up only seeing, what, 16 laps? After NINE pace laps? I lost count, I'm not sure. Then a short delay, then the 16 laps of everyone driving in a line, then off the track again because of heavy rain, so I gave up. This driving-in-a-line thing was new to me. I remember when the drivers used to try to move up in position, and would take the whole width of the track to do it. Yesterday was the weirdest snake maneuver I've ever seen, LOL! Is that a new race tactic? (Seriously, I haven't watched NASCAR since Richard Petty was winning on a regular basis.) Maybe it was just boring at the beginning, eh?
I'd like to see one now that I've set my mind to it, so I'll have to keep an eye out for the next NASCAR event and watch that. Oh, you know what else has changed? It seems like all the cars yesterday had cameras in them, whereas before, only one, MAYBE one, would have a camera in it. And that foam bracket thing they stick their heads in. I know that's to keep from breaking their necks if they hit the wall, but I assume it's hard to get used to having that around you as you're trying to do 200mph with only inches between you and the next car. I couldn't do it. Of course, getting old makes you a lot more conservative in your exploits. When I think back on some of the things I did when I was young, it makes me shake in my booties. It's a wonder I lived to be as old as I am! LOL!
