Shana, where are you?
I’m at college, Mom, don’t you remember? I’m in my dorm room!
No wonder I can’t find you! Are you sure college was such a good idea?
Mom! Just put the picture of last night’s dinner in The Quiz so that we can get started?
OK, here it is:
And what do we have this time? I recognize the salad, but what’s the other dish?
Potato salad! I make the world’s best potato salad: first I chop up a potato, I leave the skin on since that’s where all the fiber is, and I drop it in boiling water.
When it’s soft, which only takes a few minutes, I drain out the water, dump the potato into a bowl, add some chopped onion, a chopped hard boiled egg, a chopped up pickle….
Shana, this is the secret ingredient!
I guess that explains why I didn’t know about it!
Oh, and then…did I mention the celery seeds?
No, I don’t think so.
Well, you gotta have celery seeds!
If you gotta, you gotta. S’all right?
S’all right! Then you add the mayonnaise, mix it all up and add a blob of pickle juice.
I didn’t mean for it to be a blob. When I tried to pour a small amount of pickle juice into the bowl a big blob surged out and got all over everything!
Ha-ha! I wish I could have been there for that!
And then, Presto! World’s greatest potato salad! I ate the whole thing!
I believe you, it looks like you ate half of it before you took the picture!
That was unfortunate……
Mom, do we have a quiz?
I’ll say we do!
Who is it this time?
Do you remember…oh geez, I should probably come up with a fictitious name!
Here we go again!
Mom, how can I remember him if it’s a fictitious name?
Good point, Shana; that’s our little college girl, always thinking!
So, this is “Marcello’s” case?
Do you remember “Marcello’s” ADHD son, “Frankie”?
So, this is “Frankie’s” case?
OK, Ok, I’ll explain! I can explain! Oh why won’t someone let me explain???
So, I was trying to help “Marcello” come up with a remedy for “Frankie” who was bouncing off the walls, when “Marcello” informed me that his wife, “Gertrude” was sick and “Frankie” wouldn’t let her sleep! So, I said, “OK, what’s wrong with ‘Gertrude’?” And this was the answer:
Chilliness — my wife is cold. Right now she is wrapped in a comforter. She is not coughing. There is throat irritation and body aches and chilliness. She’s feverish, weak and dull with a headache.
That’s the case?
That’s all I got.
Yeesh! Well, OK….If you know the answer, please write to my mom at: LEWRA@aol.com and let her know what the remedy is. We’ll see you back here in a month with more healthy recipes and this month’s quiz answer. Bye for now!!!
