How To Make Perfect Fried Potatoes Every Time



It's that time of year. Things are getting colder earlier and earlier since Mother Nature seems to be on crack so many of us are stuck inside weeks ahead of Winter.  I find myself wanting to make foods that will fill my family's belly's and keep them warm.  My hubby's favorite breakfast always includes Fried Potatoes.  

Now when you live in the country every cafe, school, and social gathering seems to include everyone's own twist on Fried Potatoes but many of them are left with the potatoes being over cooked on the outside and not done on the inside. Not wanting to risk my hubby's potential hmmm review of my fried potatoes I usually see on his face when we eat them out, I have my own way of mastering cooking them and I'm going to share it with you.

Organizing a Large Medicine Cabinet



My husband found our computer cord this morning. I couldn't believe it. It was in a large trash bag with a heating pad and who knows what else I won't get too until late next week after I finish painting. I want to share with you some of what I have started working on between waiting on temps to come up to paint. Our heat isn't hooked up yet and we are expecting the arctic freeze tomorrow. Doesn't look like it's going to happen for the next few days.

We're Moved and Painting




Leave it to me to wait until the very last minute before Winter arrives 6 weeks early to be painting (there just wasn't time before.) 

 I also lost my computer charger and I'm awaiting for a new one to arrive. Don't you know the moment it arrives I will find the old one. Saturday we will have our blog party Simple Saturdays and I will be back next week posting in time for the arctic blast.

 What have you been up to this week?
