Our meal this month is:

Crispy Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Prep Time:

10 minutes
Cook Time:
35 minutes for a total time of 45 minutes.

You will need:

750g/1.5 Ib.baby potatoes                                       

Cost $3.27

olive oil 25.5 fluid ounces                                              

Cost  $8.99

250 Grams Kraft Parmesan Cheese

Cost $7.99

Ingredients:

1 bag of   750g/1.5 Ib.baby potatoes, halved
2 tbsp of olive oil plus some for drizzling
1/2 tsp dried oregano or thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black  pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup grated parmesan, the sand like type.

Dipping Sauce…optional
3/4C sour cream
green onions chopped…have lots if you like them!

Sour Cream

                                                 250 ml. for $1.98

Fresh Green Onions                                          

1 bunch $0.99

Directions:

Drizzle oil in 9 X 13″ glass baking dish.  Tilt pan to spread all over the base.
Use a spoon to scatter the Parmesan Mixture over the base. Spread as evenly as you can. Once sprinkled do not touch….don’t try to spread it. You’ll regret it!
Place potatoes cut side down, pressing firmly.
Optional: drizzle the top of potatoes with a touch of oil or spray with oil, then sprinkle with salt. Mom used olive oil Pam from her cupboard of goodies.

Bake potatoes for 35 to 40 minutes or until they are soft and the parmesan crust is a deep golden….no problems, you can check through the glass.

Let them rest for 5 minutes. Then use a spatula to cut between every 4 or so potatoes (cutting through the parmesan crust which bonds between each potato.), then scoop up 4 or so potatoes and flip them upside down so the cheese side is up on the platter.                                              

Mom, this picture doesn’t show the texture very well….how bout a close-up?

Much better…this dish looks pretty good.

Serve with dipping sauce, if using, and sprinkle over extra green onion if desired.  Serve as a side dish or nibbles!

Dad said, “These are surprisingly delicious…watching your mom I had to wonder.” Makes ya feel good, eh mom? mol

 

Serves 4 to 5 peeps                                              

The Stroller Tryouts

Git away from me, mom.  I don’t want to ride in that box on wheels!  Kali doesn’t look very interested either.  What are you doing….throwing Island Paradise into the box?  You can get them Kali.  I have a feeling mom is going to trap one of us in there.

Ok, get out now Kali…run like the wind.  You’re too late…mom’s moving the box.                                                             akzmstrWhoa, Kali is refusing to sit down!  She does not look happy.

aksmAre you ok Kali?  I don’t like this a bit Shoko.  There are nice comfy blankies here but I don’t like the movement.  Let me out!  Mom’s heading for the bed so you can jump off.  Geez if Kali doesn’t like it……I gotta wonder!                                                          ashstrWaiting for it to seem strange …..nothing’s happening.  Kali, this is kinda fun.  I don’t have to walk, I’m just rollin’ along and its comfy.                                                            ashzmcrOh, it looks interesting over this way mom.  C’mom step on the gas…I wanna see what’s happening.                                                     ashcrWell, paint me yellow and call me a cab, I really enjoyed the spin around the inside of the house. No fuss, just a sweet ride with blankies that feel so comfy on my tush.  I must rethink the idea that pet strollers are bad.                                                                              Kali and Shoks
