Hot Dog

That potato salad from last weeks New York Times ...

I'm not so sure about this one.
It was good, but how bad could boiled potatoes and bacon be.
Just not a huge amount of flavor from the " dressing ".

" Fry shallots until crispy " - yeah, that is just not going to happen. Maybe I cut mine to thin, I don't know. Use canned fried onions if you try this

Maybe I did not use enough bacon fat  - but it seemed like a lot to me. If I ever do this again, Ill just mix the mustard and bacon drippings into a little sour cream maybe... but that would defeat the whole Germaness of it. Maybe just a lot more vinegar... Ill work on it and get back to you .



For the first time since 1999, the FIFA Women's World Cup is back in the hands of the U.S. Women's National Team, who defeated Japan 5-2 on Sunday before an estimated crowd of 53,341 in Vancouver, Canada. It is the USWNT's third World Cup title.The U.S. squad set the pace early and continued to dominate throughout what would become the highest scoring final in Women's World Cup history. The match was hardly a repeat of the 2011 World Cup final, when the U.S. lost to Japan in a penalty shootout, as the U.S. shot out of the gate on Sunday, scoring four goals in the first 16 minutes of play.
