Good 54º smokey morning.
Ok, so the smoke was heavy again and covered up my mountain. Yesterday afternoon.....
Don't think it is going to change much, especially with the heat rising this week.
One of my favorite things is Ice Chips Candy. The company was started by 2 grandmas. The candy is really good for you, because it's made with Xylitol (substantiated by my dentist!) . 5 calories per two pieces. No soy, wheat, sugar, gluten, or dairy. I buy the cinnamon ones and they really help when I get a cough or tickle in my throat.
With my recent order they also sent me a sample of the new salted caramel flavor. OMGOSH. SOOOOOOOOOOO Good!!!
If you are interested they are in Olympia Washington https://www.icechips.com
and they have so many flavors. You can order a 3 pack or a 6 pack. You can mix and match them with all the flavors you'd like. Free shipping.

For summer picnics, get-togethers, bbqs, etc. The main course, often grilled meat, gets all of the focus but it is also important to have a few good tasty sides on hand! The potato salad is a classic summer side that is easy to make and always goes over well! One favorite winter side dish is a loaded baked potato or a baked potato with all the fixins including cheese, bacon, sour cream and green onions but it is too hot to have the oven on in the summer so why not make a loaded baked potato salad? This baked potato salad is as easy to make as boiling the potatoes. You really cannot go wrong with creamy potatoes, cheese and plenty of bacon and this loaded baked potato salad is sure to be the first dish to disappear from your summer get-together!

Sunday my Kristen went to the Museum of Illusions in Hollywood....Right on Hollywood Boulevard...
The red circle is where my grandmother and aunt used to live and where I'd go and stay often. That area so changed now, but was fun back then and you did see Hollywood actors out and about!
Anyway, that museum looks interesting....
Apparently these Illusion Museums are a franchise and are in many places in the world...
