Have you ever felt you’ve had one of those days, weeks, months or hey even years that everything seems to go wrong or things seem to just be off a bit? I’m sure you have because I believe we all do from time to time and if we never had those off times then I think the country music industry would be null and void!
It’s no secret if you know me that I have always had the dream to live on a tour bus. There was a popular christian group many years ago that my friends and I would travel to see in concert we followed them everywhere and they even started recognizing us and knowing our names! We weren’t exactly stalkers we just had a great love for their music and enjoyed traveling and having fun with each other. There was one night in particular that sticks out in my memory where we actually had the opportunity to meet and greet with them and they even allowed us on their tour bus to get a glimpse of how they traveled. It was a great night, one we will never forget and in the words of my friend Christy and she prayed to bless our food that night ….”Wow”.
Of course this tour bus in my dreams would not be for me seeing that I don’t sing but I like to pretend I can. I would be the on bus chef or in my biggest of dreams I would be traveling with my talented singing future husband and being his biggest support and cheerleader!
I can look the part but this girl only sings in her car by herself pretending to be Celine Dion or for the audience of my two mini dachshunds who start howling along with me! Just remember looks can be deceiving.
This past weekend I could have written one of those sad country songs which takes you through the scenario of my wife left me, the house burned down and even my dog wouldn’t look at me kind of songs. My rendition looked more like this….
My precious baby dog has minor back issues and was pitiful…. ( On the mend though)
My Blendtec blender died mid nut butter making….. What could be more tragic in the kitchen?
Oh well life does go on and the new blender will be here in a couple of days and I’ll be blending once again as if nothing ever happened.
Since I am talking so much of country how about a little southern concoction? Nothing says the south like good ole potato salad. It’s a staple at any family gathering, church function or picnic and it’s one of my favorites.
You either like it a bit on the sweet side or you are all for the dill. Me? I like it either way but since I’m watching the carb thing I decided to try a little Paleo take on it.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I really don’t have recipes I have concoctions so that being said I’ll share what I threw together in this Potaleo Salad.
Approx about 2 cups Steamed Cauliflower
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/3 chopped onion
1 large dill pickle
1/2 Tbsp Earth Balance Mayo
1 Boiled egg
Dijon mustard to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Happy trails to you and until we meet again!
