Not such a good start to 30 in 30...

January 5th, 2010 at 07:54 pm

Husband is doing better than I am! Sortof, he found some memory that might help a friend out and tried to get rid of it - wrong fit. Instead acquired the task of finding the right fit on ebay.

He also managed to reorganize his junk in the garage and get rid of some boxes, mostly just paper recycling that never made it out of the house, but some was reserved for making 'towns' that we have no room for. So I call it a plus. No idea how many points to give him, it was well more than 30 pieces of cardboard, but I don't think it is worth that much.

Worth more than my attempts so far though. I have managed to toss a half a dozen pieces of paper found on my desk while looking for batteries, I really need to actually clean the desk (and that cupboard).

On an unrelated note, I have a LOT of potatoes to get rid of (very nice sale near here), so today we had hashbrowns for lunch, and plans for some baked potato wedges, rosemary? or some other flavor, I dunno yet. And dunno what with either. Oh and no we did not have potatoes for breakfast, I didn't feel like cooking that early.

anyone else have a good use for potatoes?

    I'm not much of a cook but I made a very simple soup with left over potatoes and ham. Throw butter in a pot and simmer some sliced onion. Add a couple cups of cream and a cup or two of water.Mix some water into flour and mix until smooth. When the pot comes to a boil slowly pour in flour and water mix. Bring back to a boil. Throw in left over cubed potatoes and whatever ham you have left over. Add pepper and salt. I threw in left over peas and carrots. Simmer. That's it! My husband said it was better than a good restaurant soup.

    Cook the potatoes, and in the morning, fry them with black pepper, garlic powder and oregeno, then put monteray jack cheese on top. YUM YUM YUM

    i was going to say jacket potatoes (i usually make a mexican bean sauce to go with them).
    also potato and leek soup is always good (I don't use cream with it so it is pretty healthy. I just use a little olive oil, onion, leek, rosemary, potatoes and vegetable stock).

    Thanks for the ideas, missing most interesting ingredients, but I think I can manage potato soup at least.

    I used to make potatoe soup with dried milk powder and onions. First just cook sliced potatoes in crockpot with onions in lots of water. Then when done, take out some of the water and mix with dried milk. Stir till smooth, add back in crockpot and you has inexpensive potatoe soup.
