Potatoes

David loves potatoes. Doesn’t matter how they are prepared just so long as they are potatoes.  Since it has gotten a little cooler, I don’t mind the oven being on. So roasted potatoes are super easy, and I enjoy them as well.

Three pounds of small yukon gold potatoes, washed, and quartered.  Place in a single layer on a baking sheet.Salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat evenly.  Bake at 350 degrees until golden, and crispy, about 30 minutes (in my oven).I always add some salt after cooking.  I am posting more of the recipes I do a regular basis for our kids.  Simple ones, I know, but for them, a permanent record of what I cook.  Hopefully, you won’t be bored with them, and might even enjoy them as well.

Blessings.

Queen

Being a large woman for the majority of my life, Queen’s “Fat Bottom Girls” is almost an anthem for me.  I feel empowered when I hear this song or I should say when I sing along with this song.

This cartoon caption made me giggle. What song is your anthem or inspiration?

Blessings!

Party Food

I had a Premier Jewelry party on Sunday.  I love having an excuse to get together with girlfriends, and trying on new bling. But I love feeding people. I like to see people happy when eating something I have prepared or made.

Although, I really didn’t make anything major as all I did was put some things together.  Meat and salami tray, pickled okra and kalamata olives.I did make the Million Dollar Dip, and had cheese chunks, grapes, Stacy’s pita chips and Ritz crackers.Also made Buffalo Chicken dip, and tortilla chips.Plated smoked salmon or Lox with cream cheese, sliced purple onions, capers, and fried capers. Oh and some toasted bread, that I had to throw some out due to burning! Ugh. It was a such fun afternoon. Some food, wine, soda, and leftover Halloween chocolate rounded out the afternoon.  I love girlfriend time, plus it gets my house clean!! Bonus!!  What did you do this weekend?

Blessings!
