Shopping and Filling In on Friday!




Time To Shop With Our Pal Bacon!

Actually we need to thank everyone’s pal Da Phenny and his Mom for hosting “Shopping” this month for Bacon and his Mom – and Phenny picked one of my Mom’s favorite things to eat – POTATOES!    Any recipe that has potatoes in it – that was our assignment and while Mom has about a gazillion recipes involving potatoes – THIS is one of the most simple and delish ones!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes!

First up – the shopping part of this post – we actually had butter, salt, pepper, dry mustard and onion already – so we didn’t shop for that stuff but we DID get a pound of red potatoes and some honey!

One pound Red Potatoes:   $1.33

12 oz. Pure Clover Honey:  $2.99

Here’s the full ingredient list:

1 lb. red potatoes – quartered

2 Tablespoons diced onion

1 Teaspoon dry mustard

Pinch of salt and pinch of black pepper

2 Tablespoons of melted butter

1 Tablespoon of HONEY

Preheat your oven to 375.   Lightly coat an 11×7″ baking dish with cooking spray (oil works too but spray is easier!)

Layer in a single layer the potatoes and top with the diced onion.  Combine the other ingredients in a small bowl then drizzle over top of the potatoes.

Bake 35 minutes (or until potatoes are tender) and make sure to STIR it all about half way through the cooking time.

VOILA!   Easy Peasy!

As I said before, my Mom is a potato nut.   She loves potatoes………..she makes family favorite potato salad frequently, and loves “twice-baked” potatoes………..and baked sweet potatoes and – well you get the picture – she does love potatoes.    These honey potatoes are just too easy NOT to make and they really are tasty and NOT too sweet.

Mom says I look a little like a BIG RED POTATO……HUH????!!!!

P.S.   Don’t forget to hook up to Bacon’s blog if you post a recipe!

Second part of my post today is FRIENDLY FRIDAY FILL-INS which is a fun Hop hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15andMeowing………………..every Friday we get FOUR sentences with blanks to fill in.   You can join in this fun by clicking on the badge above and going to McGuffy’s to fill out the link form and VOILA – you will be filling in sentences too!    Thanks to Ellen and Annie for co-hosting this Hop.

Here are this week’s sentences!   I let my Mom fill in today – aren’t I nice to SHARE?????   The spirit of Thanksgiving is still here I guess………anyway, her answers are in RED.

1. I start to decorate for Christmas/Hanukkah THIS WEEKEND!   Always right after Thanksgiving.

2. I prefer a fake/artificial Christmas tree because I don’t have to remember to water it and there’s less mess.
3. The best thing about the holidays is seeing so many people smiling and enjoying themselves – and of course being with family. 

4. The worst thing about the holidays is that they are OVER too soon and I must repack/re-store all my decorations – that is always sad!

I really don’t know what to expect for the holidays this year since I’ve never had a “Christmas” before but I do know that if it makes Mom and Dad happy, then I will be HAPPY TOO!!!!!!

Love, Teddy
