Today is a happy day for me.
I found a recipe on the internet that seemed to closely resemble my mom's recipe for potato salad.
All of our relatives raved about my mom's potato salad. I didn't like it that much as a kid but as
I got older I liked it more and more. I tried it yesterday, you have to put it in the refrigerator overnight
for it to be any good. Today, to my amazement, it was excellent. I only slightly adjusted a few measurements.
I was most worried about getting the boiled potatoes just right. That's key.
For some reason I managed to find my way through the woods and hit everything just right.
It doesn't happen to me often in the kitchen. I wrote down everything including the way I prepared
the potatoes and how long I boiled them.. to the minute.
Sometimes even a blind pig finds an acorn.

Are you Eugenie Grandet or Le Pere Goriot?

The gold in your hand will become night soil very soon.
