But here it is.
Last night, I wasn't feeling very well. We didn't have any meat in the house. I didn't feel like going out to buy food.
So we ate potatoes.
I had a recipe from a "Gourmet Slowcooker" book for "Irish Champ". It said to cut up 8 russet potatoes and cook them with one cup of chicken broth for two hours. One cup of broth did not seem to come even close to covering them. The recipe didn't say if it was supposed to. I decided, at this point, that I didn't care what the recipe said. I poured the rest of the box of broth in and let it cook for two and a half hours.
When it was done I transferred the potatoes into a bowl with a slotted spoon, added a full bunch of chopped scallions, a cup of half-n-half, and salt and pepper to taste. Oh yeah and SIX TABLESPOONS of butter. The instructions said to, who was I to argue?
I ate it for dinner and thought it was okay but I didn't think it was anything super-duper great. Then I got an email from Mike today saying "I <3 Irish Champ" so I guess I will add it onto the "boy-approved" list.
Happy Hump-Day to all my fellow Sunday-Thursday worker bees.

Alert, alert! I can eat Trader Joe's yogurt and it doesn't suck complete ass. Pardon the strong language, but this calls for it. Every other brand or flavor yogurt I have found that meets my requirements is disgusting. I had the TJ's vanilla today and the cocoa yesterday. They are both fantastic. No ill effects. I'll get more than 4 next time I am Charlotte. It felt good to eat breakfast again!
