Sometimes some of the best dishes are just plain and simple. That’s the case with this recipe for roasted fingerling potatoes. No need for a lot of fuss, just a little seasoning and the delicious natural taste of tiny fingerlings.
Start with one pound of fresh fingerling potatoes. I got these at the local Marietta Farmers Market. They were just too cute not to pick up a little bundle.
Poor guy, I know he was just trying to agree with me and make me feel better. You have to kind of feel sorry for them, women are uberly complex and complicated creatures. I am a woman, and I don’t even understand myself half of the time. It’s funny, I do want his honest opinion, but when he gives it to me I then decide that I didn’t want it in the first place. Ha! He deserves a bit of a reprieve for those comments. I am pretty sure he was acting in a moment of desperation. Who would want to see their wife cry over a hair cut. I am pretty sure Shakespeare himself could not have crafted words to make me feel better in that moment. It was just something I had to work through on my own.
I’m over the crying. Don’t get me wrong, I am still mad about all the hair she whacked off, but it will grow back. And don’t worry, me and Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder made up over a double waffle at the Waffle House. Nothing like syrup and butter to smooth things over.
So tell me, do you have any hair disasters or funny “men” stories? I know you’ve got ‘em, let me hear ‘em sisters!
If there is one thing more fun than giving a gift, it’s giving a handmade gift! I know in this day and age, it is much quicker to run up to Wally World, grab something off the shelf, speed through the check out and throw it in a gift bag. But I like to hope that there are others out there, like myself, that appreciate the time, effort and love put into handmade items.
I’ve seen several different nursing covers out there in babyland, however I decided they were all just a little too plain for my taste. I love ruffles, I love frills, I love buttons! So I set out to make Shea’s little Butterbean something unique: a nursing cover that fits the bill for all the practical purposes, yet with a good dousing of hand-crafted charm.
A delicate polka-dotted ruffle lines the hem of the cover, while a bright hand-stitched zinnia dances in the corner. Each petal was hand-cut and a load of little buttons brighten up the flower’s center. Perfect!
I can’t wait to meet Miss Butterbean. Ok, I guess I have to stop calling her that. She actually has a name now – Colleen. Hmmm… Colleen the Butterbean. I like the sound of that.
Best wishes to the happy family!
