This is a recipe that we love (sorry the picture is so dark). As most of you know, our daughter plays softball. School softball, then she plays travel softball in the Summer. I made a vow last year to do our best not to eat a lot of fast food during these weekend tournaments. This is a great recipe to have in the cooler on those warm Summer days.
1/2 stalk celery, chopped
1/4 cup sweet relish
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/2 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain and chop
Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water; peel and chop.
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, eggs, celery, sweet relish, garlic, mustard, mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Gently mix.

I cracked my tooth about 5 weeks ago. My fear of the dentist had me waiting three weeks before I had it checked out. Last week, my dentist drilled it and the tooth broke off. He was pretty sure he had gotten all the crack, so he refilled it and sent me on my way. Well, after the numbing went away I found out that he DID NOT get the crack. He had drilled, and refilled the tooth, packing the filling into the crack. Next day he told me that he could not guarantee that a root canal would work. I didn't want to spend lots of $$$ and end up loosing the tooth anyway, so I went to an oral surgeon and had the tooth pulled. I'm still not back 100%!! All the work done those two days left my other teeth so sensitive. I'm praying really hard that I have no permanent damage done to those nerves.
Hey, but looking on the bright side......I'VE LOST 8 POUNDS!!!!!
