1. One big bag of potatoes – Three different dishes
We’ve had a bout of stomach bug around here, so I’ve been keeping the food pretty mild. Last Sunday we had baked potato bar for lunch. I baked ten giant potatoes and then four of the people I thought would be here bailed on us.
That meant I had a bunch of potatoes left over. So Tuesday night I turned them into Baked Potato Soup and Loaded Potato Skins. I was hoping to freeze the potato skins for later, but the kids had friends over and I needed to stretch the soup a bit further.
2. Microwave Homemade Chocolate Pudding
My friend Lynn posted this simple homemade Chocolate Pudding the other day and I knew I wanted to make it. Oh my word! This recipe is amazing. It’s easy, uses common ingredients and the flavor is so good. It’s a perfect treat. Click here to see the recipe on Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures.
3. Detox Salad
After all the potato dishes this week, it felt good to fix a big bowl of veggies. I love this Detox Salad. It holds up great in the fridge, goes with nearly any kind of dinner and tastes great for lunch too.
What I’ve been watching:
Last weekend I went to see two different movies in the theater. We don’t go to the movies very often, so it was really unusual to go twice in one weekend.
Hidden Figures – I saw this with Mia, our youngest daughter. We both loved it! I highly recommend seeing this one. I’ve enjoyed listening to the soundtrack on Spotify too.
La La Land – I watched this for the second time last weekend. It’s so much fun! The soundtrack for this movie has seen a lot of play time on my Spotify account too.
White Collar – This TV show is streaming on Netflix. It’s a light hearted heist/FBI/crime show.
