I am starting to think about Thanksgiving Dinner. I know, most people have long since planned out what they’re cooking, but because it’s just the two of us, I really haven’t given it much thought. I’m not making a turkey, that’s too much food for 2 people and I don’t want all that leftover stuff.
So, time to start ruminating… Any suggestions?

Who Doesn’t Like Potatoes?

It’s been awhile since I did a recipe, so even though it’s Handmade Monday (yes again–and go check them out by clicking on the link, you will be amazed!) I’m going to do a food thing today, because it’s handmade, and I have discovered those other crafters like food too. 🙂

I made this up after we ate what was supposed to be potato skins at a restaurant one afternoon. They were good, but I didn’t think they were potato skins, and I thought, I could make something like this, but better! So, This recipe is my version, which is more like a baked and then roasted potato. I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it’s easy or quick. It’s not really either of those. But it’s really GOOD! And, twice we’ve had it and made a whole meal of it.

I think it could be a side dish though. And good enough for company. And it just begs to be jazzed up with additions. My neighbor suggested rosemary, and I can think of a few more things right off the top of my head. So, pop over to Cook It and let’s make Baked and Roasted Potatoes! I think they’re worth the effort, and more important, Jeff has asked me to make them again! And again! 🙂
