My daughter, Caite, and I decided that we would like to try new recipes this year. Don't you just get so stuck in a food rut. My first attempt was these delicious potato stacks. They are actually quite easy and are a really nice touch instead of baked or even scalloped potatoes with the meat or fish of your choice.
If you have a mandoline for slicing, the potatoes are nicely uniform in slice width. Using the mandoline was new for me also. Just heed the safety guides as I nearly took off the tip of my finger. It's still sore a month later. Here is the recipe link: http://www.recipetineats.com/cheesy-potato-gratin-stacks-muffin-tin/
February 8 and first post of the year...
A new computer and adjusting to Window 10, which is not easy.
Trying to load and work with Photoshop on the Windows 10 platform.
HMM not easy either.
A segue into my word for the year which is drum roll please....
My initial intention was to stretch this aging body on a regular basis as in yoga or some other stretching class. But then I thought, stretching can also be to expand my thinking. I'm going to run with this one.
I love this little flower. It's formal name is Calliandra haematocephala. Easy for you to say. But it is the perfect example of the word "Stretch". It begins life as a little bud that strongly resembles a raspberry. It gradually begins to fatten up and then poof, it throws out all of these thread like petals.
