We invited a few friends over and cooked out last night. Tony grilled some veggie burgers and corn, and I made a couple of yummy contributions -- the PPK's Creamy Avocado Potato Salad and a rhubarb crisp.
The instructions say not to let the potato salad sit for more than a couple of hours. I would add, don't let it sit at all, if you can help it! I did, and the tomatoes released their juice, and the whole thing got a little soggy. Fortunately, it still tasted delicious -- like guacamole studded with chunks of potato. If you love avocados as much as I do, don't let anything stop you from trying this recipe!
I want to make some modifications to my rhubarb crisp before posting a recipe. The crust was lacking something -- I will add oats next time to make it more substantial. I love rhubarb so much. Baked in a crisp, it tastes like a mix between a very tart apple and a strawberry. I toss it with lime zest, which enhances the tartness.
This morning, I went to Target and looked for some clothes, but I couldn't find anything I liked. Driving home, I decided that if I wasn't going to have a new outfit, I would have new hair instead.
I was going for a Scarlett Johansson-type jagged bob. One of these days, I might get around to having it cleaned up by a hair stylist. I would like it shorter in the back. Or I might just leave it as is. I've never been a spend-hours-in-the-hair salon, mani-pedi type of girl at all. There was only one period in my life that I regularly got my hair cut at a salon, and then they closed down and I didn't try to find another one. I would rather chop it myself when the inspiration strikes. If it doesn't turn out perfect, I guess that's OK because I always seem to wear it up anyway!
How do you take care of your hair? Do you go to a stylist, cut it yourself, or just let it groooow?
Is everyone else having the same problem with Blogger that I've been having for the past few days? It won't let me sign in to post comments or reply to comments. Today I figured out a way around it -- post anonymous comments and identify myself in the comment box itself -- but it's still kinda annoying. I hope they get it figured out soon. P.S. I just realized that if you are having this problem, you won't be able to tell me because you can't comment! Ha.
Right now I am headed out to enjoy a walk with my little ones. Hope you're having a great weekend!
