Or you could add a bit of balsamic or cider vinegar to it. I find that adds a nice zip.

I tried the Miracle Whip mixed with the Mayo for the potato salad. Didn't care for that combo at all. Thank goodness I bought a small jar of MW. Will have to look for a small jar of Hellman's new product. Hopefully it can be found in a small jar also. I hate to buy a new product in the large size and find I don't like it in the end.

Now the Hidden Valley new line of products starting with their Farmhouse Dressings to their new sandwich spreads, those are winners in my book. I always go for the ones that have garlic and Parmesan Cheese. And HV has never let me down yet. I wish their Farmhouse Parmesan Dressing came in gallon size jugs. I could make a meal out of that.

I have to go out and water the plants and gardens. Everything is dry and droopy, and our heat index continues into triple digits. I'm dragging my feet....

I was out for ten minutes. That was enough.
I noticed that when the AC kicks on I get a power flicker. I've never had that before. Definitely a lot of power usage on the grid.
All this talk of refreshing drinks has me hankering for a horchata.

I haven't been outside since last week and I intend to keep it that way until this heat wave breaks. I am no dummy! I am so glad my mailbox is inside the building.

I volunteered at the master gardener helpline today from 10 am-2 pm, then ran a couple errands. Now I'm relaxing in the a/c with the doggie at my feet.

I did some mowing again today. I have guests coming in tomorrow, and I don't want to have to mow when they are here. Now I need to shower and run to the store before time to fix supper.

I mentioned in the dinner thread that we were almost in a serious accident - a car behind us was speeding while we were stopped at a light and just before he hit he swerved, pulling on his emergency brake (which probably saved his life) and rammed into the back of a flatbed tow-truck. The driver was shaken up but only minor injuries and the tow truck driver ended up towing the car away. I am singing praises for sure.

This has thrown my timetable off and I just found out that the function I have been providing baked goods for this week needs extra for Friday on top of the 200 mini castle cakes I am making for the children that day. So I am thankful the air-conditioner is working!

It also means I need a trip to the store in there for more ingredients so I better get off the computer and get to work!

Yup, we have Loblaw's and Maxi. I noticed at a bar that had gone cheap and bought the PC tomato-clam instead of the Clamato. I had a quick look at the ingredients, and woohoo, no MSG (or even yeast extract).
