Taken anything yummy to a picnic lately?
FEEL FREE TO SKIP THIS PART, IT'S JUST ME THROWING AN E-TANTRUM:
OhmyGOD. Fucking Blogger. Can you BE any slower? Uggggg. I am so over this fucking shit! Someone help - HOW do I put my blog someplace better? Do they all have issues like this? Dude, I'm being taken advantage of for being an e-tard. Just because something is free doesn't mean it has to suck, though. I can't sit for 20 minutes while a page loads. It drivvvveeessss me fucking CRAZY! AHHAHHAHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! Blogger you are some serious suckage right now. Bitchmoanbitchmoan. Wahhhhh.If I could, I would stamp my feet and yell that I hated you, but I don't want you to get mad and lose my stuff. You are driving me FUCKING BATSHIT UP THE WALL!!!! Get your shit together! Get me out of here!!!!!!
(Obviously I will never become a Blogger "blog of note" with this attitude.)
Blogger bitching aside - my blog definitely needs some prettying up. Also, the more "slick and professional and hiply-designed" blogs get more play. People come here and think -oh, it's a BLOGGER TEMPLATE... LATER. Which annoys me to some degree, since I visit of these said "awesome looking" blogs that everyone links to and read them and their 131 comments and am like "what the fuck?" Devoid of anything remotely entertaining. Just a bunch of stupid people leaving vapid comments so they'll get hits. Blogland High....
But still. I want a goddamn pretty blog. And I want it to be fucking FAST and I want to be able to post whenever I fucking want to, damnnit.
(The PMS. Apparently it just spoke.)
OK. YOU CAN COME BACK NOW. E-TANTRUM HAS SUBSIDED.
Alrighty then, before we were so rudely interrupted by the P-MonSter and Blogger's completely sucky performance, I was going to lament my lack of a potluck/cookout go-to dish.
Everytime I am faced with a cookout (either my own or someone else's) I become mildly stressed over what to bring. One of my main worries is that someone else will have already made it. Case in point: last weekend I showed up with homemade pico de gallo and homemade guacamole. What else was also there? Oh, let's see....some store-bought 7-layer dip, more salsa, some mango salsa, and about 37 bags of tortilla chips. I know my choice was probably rather picnic-cliche, but I just really wanted some fucking guacamole.
Now, for tomorrow's BBQ I already have what I am making picked out. But it wasn't without frantically searching Whole Foods and Epicurious for that unique, no-one-else-will-make-this perfect something. And I sure as hell AM NOT the type to pull in to a Safeway and grab a bag of chips or that gross yellow potato salad. No way, Jose. I MAKE. Trust me, you want me at your cookout.
So people. What do you guys bring to cookouts? What's your special go-to picnic dish?
