Turkish potato salad!

I roomed with a girl from Turkey for a bit.
She made this for one of our group meals.
I ate so much ...and then went back for more!

Making it today for a backyard bbq.


Potatoes - boil them unpeeled and let them cool but you will actually peel them while still warm but not hot. There is a reason for this...

Green onions - Sliced include the greens.
Red and yellow and orange bell peppers - Chop these
Cilantro - Chop a whole bunch WITHOUT stems.

Salt, pepper, fresh squeezed lemon juice, EVOO

To assemble:

Chop all the fresh ingredients and juice a lemon or two.

Peel potatoes while still warm. Easy peeling after boiling...
Why warm? The ingredients marinate and infuse the potatoes better while warm!

Mix potatoes and veg well then drizzle in EVOO and lemon juice to taste. It takes a bit of both! Don’t be stingy! Then salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate.

Before serving taste and adjust if needed.
I don’t include amounts because it doesn’t matter. Choose the amount of potatoes and then enough veg for color and the rest is by taste. Enjoy.

For second time Ben Sasse R-NE faces censure for "not bending the knee to tRump"


State party repubs will censure Sasse again Feb 13.

A snippet:
The resolution, posted by News Channel Nebraska Central, finds that Sasse "warrants and shall incur the penalty of CENSURE" to be imposed by the party on February 13. The state party censured Sasse in 2016 for not sufficiently supporting Trump, according to the senator's office.

Taylor Sliva, Sasse campaign spokesman, said Thursday night that the committee hadn't shared the resolution with them but that they had seen it in News Channel Nebraska Central.

"You are welcome to censure me again, but let's be clear about why this is happening: It's because I still believe -- as you used to -- that politics isn't about the weird worship of one dude," Sasse said
in the video. "The party could purge Trump skeptics, but I'd like to convince you that not only is this 'civic cancer' for the nation, it's also terrible for our party."

(Bold is mine).

Weird worship of one dude!

Imperial Breakfast Stout

Enjoying a Great Notion Brewing stout with “an irresponsible amount of maple syrup and aged in coffee”.

11% abv

It’s a sipper and extremely sweet. Probably won’t buy again (one off can) but it’s pretty much what I expected if not a bit heavy on the syrup!
