Is this a Hassle?


27/10/2012

Bonjour mes amis!

Living in France has been great for me because...I am unemployed!  When asked what I do here, I say...I Play!!!  (Well, I am still handling the U.S. bills, and cleaning the apartment, and making the meals, and doing the laundry...so I still do a fair amount of work...)  Everyone thought I would be bored, and go crazy after the first week here, but honestly, I can say...

I am not bored!

If I have a few minutes where boredom might set in, I can always look at Pinterest.com for some fun, especially since the weather's getting cooler, and I'm not traipsing around the city like I was.  I hadn't really looked at Pinterest much before we moved to France, but here I am, without my Recipe Box, and all my well-loved cookbooks, and I'm trying to come up with new and unique things to feed my family for dinner.  I don't have to do all French cooking, although now that I've been clued into a French Recipe website, there will be some new things coming...

I'm really not a Foodie!  My love is Decorating and Crafting, but creating with food is fun too...it's just that the creative project is usually...

GONE TEN MINUTES AFTER THE PROJECT IS COMPLETED...

but, that's why we have to take photos, right?


Well, a few weeks ago, I pinned a photo of some Potatoes that sounded easy to make...and my family loves Potatoes...so I tried to make them...and guess what?

I've had repeat requests!


So, I'm sharing my photos...
they are called Hasselback Potatoes,
and they are no hassle at all!


Prepared for the Oven!

...and 40 Minutes Later...

Yum!
Don't they look fancy, elegant and fun to eat?


Would you like to make these yourself? Click HERE, where I'm sharing the link from the Pinterest post.  I omitted the garlic this time.  They could go with almost any meat dish, but the other night, we just each ate a Hasselback Potato and a nice, fresh Garden Salad!!!  (Are there any rules that say we have to have Meat every night?)

Simple and easy dinner...and it looks like I really fussed.  (It's really not as hard as it looks to make those nice, thin slices either, but Dr. J was impressed!  Let's just keep that our little secret, okay?)

Have a "Jewel" of a day!
