Try It Tuesday

Guys! Guess what?

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

I debated on whether or not to post anything today, but, I’m going to be out of town next week, seeing my adorable niece and nephews so I figured I should post something.

Last week, I saw this on Pinterest:

PO-TA-TO! Cook 'em, boil 'em, throw 'em in a stew?!

PO-TA-TO! Cook ’em, boil ’em, throw ’em in a stew?!

Evidently, its supposed to be yummier and healthier than French fries because they are not in fact, fried. I was skeptical (I loves my FFs!) but I wanted to give it a go. So, I got my potato, cleaned it (I know you’re just going to peel it, but I feel better if I rinse it first), and then peeled it.

Then I sliced it almost to the very bottom. I put it on a cookie sheet and drizzled it with extra virgin olive oil. Then I sprinkled some sea salt and pepper on it, as well as some spray butter.

Taters, precious.

Taters, precious.

I put it in the oven and 40 minutes later, here it was:

Please ignore the dirty skillet in the background.

It was pretty tasty! Although, I was a little disappointed because as the pieces got bigger (toward the middle) they weren’t as crispy as the ones one the outside. My advice? Make sure that the EVOO gets in between ALL the pieces; that’ll help it taste more like French fries.

So, my mom is awesome, y’all. She makes the cutest owl hats (and other things):

Who, who is cute? YOU.

Who, who is cute?
YOU.

She’s a pro crocheter and I’ve always wanted to be good at that kind of stuff too. This past weekend, I let her try to teach me how to crochet. It wasn’t too difficult. I did do an awesome chain! However, after I mastered that, she tried to teach me how to link the crochets together. Yeeeahhh….

Here’s what its supposed to look like:

Pretty!

Pretty!

And here’s what mine looked like:

Umm...

Umm…

When I showed my sister, she said, “Cool! You made a pickle!” Ha ha! God bless her…

(Also, I wasn’t going to toss this in the disposal. Its just that the light’s better in the kitchen and the bulb is RIGHT over the sink. Darn our dark apartment.)

I’m going to keep trying to get better and I’ll update you on my progress!
