Potato Salad!

Fa caldo! Afoso, appiccicoso, schifoso!

I’m sorry…I’m losing it…
It is sooo hot and humid here that my hair is all rebel and I’ve sweat rolling off my back and my forehead as I write.

I don’t like sweating, unless I’m working out, in which case it makes me feel  like I’m burning more calories than normal….but I don’t like sweating while seated at my desk, after I showered and perfumed myself! That is annoying and not fun!

I’ve no idea how I am going survive other 3 months of this inferno! Shanghai’s summer is a torture! I think it’s the hardest time of the year for me to be here, away from my little, nice, sunbath-friendly town in Italy.

I miss home!


As you know, I am not going to get myself close to the stove until temperature drops back to normal levels, so from now on only salads and raw food! Get used to it!

Today I’m going to share with you this divine potato salad! I loved it!
