"Fast Foods" Not the kind you get at a drive through building but things you can fix fast at home. With summer coming on it's time to roll out the BBQ or start fixing summer time foods. Do you have a quick summer recipe that you love to make? Care to share? This needs to be easy, fast and oh-so-yummy!

I love cucumbers in sour cream! But when I make them I also add some sliced Walla Walla onions and often some chunks of tomato. I've never measured the dressing and if you look up recipes the amounts are all over the So here's an approximation.

Cucumbers in Sour Cream

1 cucumber - sliced (I prefer English)
slices of sweet onion to taste (about 1/2 as much as the cucumbers)
tomato chunks (optional)

1/2 cup sour cream
2-3 Tbls. vinegar
1-2 Tbls. sugar or substitute (I use Splenda and it works well)
Dill (optional) I don't use it but some do

Mix dressing in medium bowl. Stir in cucumbers and onions. Chill until serving time. Add tomato chunks before serving. This is how my mom made it but there are hundreds of variations. Make what you like.

What is your Fast Food summer recipe?

Oh, what a great topic!!

My fast and easy summer recipe is Pammi's Perfect Potato Salad:


White potatos (either cut into cubes, or the tiny whole ones) - use as many as you want/need for however many people you are serving.
Celery - cut into small pieces
Green Onions - diced finely
Bacon Ranch Salad dressing


Boil potatos until just tender ( you want them to stay somewhat firm and not mushy)
Drain water
if you haven't already diced your potatos (for larger white ones), do so now.
Put drained potatos into large mixing bowl
Add celery and green onions to mixing bowl, toss to evenly distribute
Start adding Bacon Ranch Salad dressing, a bit at a time, tossing after each addition
Use as much or as little dressing as you want (you can control how creamy the potato salad will be)
When done, either serve warm, or cover tightly and put in fridge to cool off.

Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoralacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily
