I came home tonight, took off my shoes and started going through the mail when I remember I was suppose to bring home milk. Dang it. Back out I went. I came home for the second time when my phone rings. I’m chatting away. Then Haillie brings down her laptop to show me her artwork for the school’s upcoming musical. Which turns into us watching “A Christmas Story”. A quarter after five I remember I was suppose to make potato salad for dinner. Duh! I didn’t have the 45 minutes necessary for the potatoes. My microwave and it’s baked potato button saved the day. These were delish but next time I will go lighter with the red wine vinegar.
