Recommended with Oven Roasted Potatoes

This recipe from My Adventures in the Country.  You need to try it.

Cheesey bacon oven roasted potatoes
I love potatoes.  I love-love-love them.  Homemade chips, baked potatoes, Five Guys fried, mashed potatoes, it's all good.  I'll tell you, though, Caleb and I have had a heck of a hard time preparing oven roasted potato sides that don't turn out burnt or flappy.  (I seriously don't get it.  We even recently bought a mandolin so we could be sure to have evenly cut potatoes, but even that hasn't really helped yet.)

Coming to the rescue, we have these cheesy bacon roasted potatoes!  Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and large enough that they don't burn like our failed attempts!  These things are so very tasty, and definitely work a recommendation.  Let me know if you try them!

It's a few weeks old, but if you haven't see John Oliver's dissection of the Miss America Pageant, you need to see it.  Hilarious and informative.

I've never been to NYC, and when I go, Odd Fellows ice cream shop will be on my list of things to do.  Just look at those amazing flavors!  I'd like to try the Brown Butter, Cornbread, or Pretzel first.  (I've been wanting to try savory/salty ice creams this past week.  I actually thought about a chicken flavored ice cream.  Too weird?)

This connection made me laugh sadly.

A little extra insight into the intelligence of elephants

This week I learned that if you pair dairy with blueberries, you don't get the full benefit of the antioxidants.  And if you want to get the antioxidant benefit of turmeric, add pepper to activate the curcumin.  This stuff is super interesting and helpful, and you can learn a few more tricks here at Darling Mag.

"Where in Scripture does it ever show Jesus saying, 'Oh, I'll just go wherever you're headed?' Never." A friend of mine shared excellent and powerful writing on His plans vs. our plans.  Worth a read.

  1. My family loves potatoes, so every year we create about 5 potato dishes for Thanksgiving. I'll definitely have mix it up and try this one this year!

      I'd love to see a Thanksgiving table with 5 potato dishes! They are one of my favorite (thought often forgotten) foods.
