Are you ready for Autumn? I am. I want to wear jeans and boots. I want to watch football. I want to have my morning coffee outside and not be sweating. I want to buy cute fall clothes for the babe. I am sooooo ready.
Now, if you’ve been reading my blog since it’s inception, you’ll know that I love “mini” food. I especially love small potatoes. They are so cute and tasty.
I did tweak this recipe from Cooking Light some. I used rosemary instead of tarragon and chives. Rosemary is one of my favorite herbs, and it screams “Autumn” to me. I love the way rosemary smells – the apartment smelled so delicious while I was roasting the potatoes. This recipe is super easy. Just follow the instructions and you’ll have an incredible side dish. They go with anything (chicken, beef, lamb, fish, cookies, whatever). I even tossed these in a salad the next day – they are great cold too!
I was recently in Alabama visiting my family. The babe, Dan and I all had a wonderful time at Lake Martin. It’s such a beautiful and special place. And this is big news: you can now get a latte in Alex City!!!! Go to Coffee and Cakes Cafe in the Queen’s Attic and you can get a really good latte. It made my whole trip! Additionally, while I was downtown, I shopped at Cloud Nine and Carlisle Drug Store. They both have some really cute baby clothes. If you live in/near Alexander City you should go check it out.
While I was home (2 days longer than I had planned thanks to Irene) my mom and I did some great cooking. So stay tuned for delicious peel and eat shrimp, fruit cobbler, faux banana ice cream and oven baked okra. Have a great Labor Day!!
