Southwestern Potato Salad

Do you ever think about curious things? Look at something and think, What a curious thing.

I was sitting in my room yesterday, waaaaiting for Wells Fargo to work (seriously??), and I looked outside at the uber gross, sleeting rainy mess outside. And there was a bird. Just.. sitting on a branch. In the freezing rain. And I thought, What a curious thing.

Do birds not mind the rain? Or the cold, for that matter? At signs of rain and/or cold, I dart inside. Get me away from that grossness. But no, this bird was just enjoying the weather.

Aside from thinking random, curious, and totally irrelevant things, I apparently make awesome potato salad. This potato salad is banging. Everyone likes it except my boyfriend. Hmph. But I took this to a dinner thing and people were either being really polite because I was the new girl or seriously loved it. This thang has a kick and says, “Bring on summer, baby!” Which is also what my heart is screaming.
