I was supposed to run a 5K yesterday.
And that would, presumably, lead to an inspirational blog post about surprises and goals and crazy things we do as we get older.
Tornado watch trumps 5K. Ten minutes before the start. (I was pretty grumpy. I was already there and all, y'know?)
I did run it anyway. But on the track at my gym. (Nice and dry and tornado-free.) I did quite well. So there.
Since things didn't quite turn out the way I'd planned (anyway you look at it), how about a silver lining?
Last week, I mentioned my Mom's Lemon Cheese Salad, a staple at our Thanksgiving dinners for decades. Because several of you have asked for the recipe, my Mom was happy to oblige!
Here it is: my Mom's tried and true Lemon Cheese Salad!
It is so good.
It's basic and rather plain looking. My Mom recommends that you "jazz it up" a bit if you serve it at an event like a potluck -- otherwise people don't necessarily dig in! (But when they do, they'll usually want more!) (My note: it mixes GREAT with cranberry sauces of all types.)
And there you have it! A silver lining . . . in a tornado watch.
