home sick

Yesterday I was home sick for the day. I woke up with a pounding headache and upset stomach. I still have it.. but its friday and I know I’ll have stuff to do today if I don’t go. And.. my new laptop came in already so I have to get it from work anyway.  I’m pretty excited to have it. I can’t wait to be able to do all my graphic design stuff again, and I know I’ve said it before. I wasn’t expecting the laptop to come in for a couple days yet.

Last night Dan finally came home, he’s been gone since sunday. So I thought I would suprise him, even though I wasn’t feeling good.. I made fried fish, rice and potato salad.. I knew he wouldn’t eat the potato salad but I thought hey why not.. I love potato salad and I had found a new recipe that I was dying to try and its only 100 calories! Its from my new cookbook!

Creamy Potato Salad

4 medium potatoes
1 cup sliced celery (2 stalks)
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup low fat mayonnaise dressing
1/2 cup light dairy sour cream
2 tbsp fat free milk
2 tsp prepared mustard
1/4 tsp dried dill
1/4 tsp salt

Scrub potatoes. In a large covered saucepan cook poatoes in boiling water for 20 to 25 mins or until tender.  Drain well and cool slightly. Cube potatoes ( I left the skins on). Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in celery and green onions.

In a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise dressing, sour cream, milk, mustard, dill and salt.  Pour over potatoes. Carefully fold in the chopped egg.

Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.

Its pretty easy to make, and I actually served it when the potatoes were still warm. It was so good. I always get this hot potato salad when we go to Earl’s restaurant in the city and it really reminded me of that. Anyway.. I am definitely taking left overs for lunch today! The only thing that bothers me about the new cook book is it doesn’t say how big your portions should be it just said this makes 8 servings. Oh well.. I guess I’ll just have to eye ball everything.
