Monday Evening November 5th…
The Table is set ~
The Candles are lit ~
Our dear friends Dave and Jody arrive from Washington for the night ~
We are truly blessed ~
For an extra treat here’s a great recipe from the Barefoot Contessa for Mustard-Roasted Potatoes ~
2-1/2 lbs. small red potatoes (I used gold), 2 Yellow onions, 3 Tblsps. good olive oil, 2 Tblsps. whole-grain mustard, 2 tsps. kosher salt, 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, 1/4 C. chopped fresh parsley ~
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut the potatoes in halves or quarters, depending on their size, and place them on sheet pan. Remove the ends of the onions, peel them, and cut them in half. Slice them crosswise in 1/4 inch-thick slices to make half-rounds. Toss the onions and potatoes together on the sheet pan. Add the olive oil, mustard, 2tsp. salt, and the pepper and toss them together. (I mixed these ingredients all together before I tossed them with the potatoe/onion mix) Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the potatoes are lightly brown on the outside and tender on the inside. Toss the potatoes from time to time with metal spatula so they brown evenly.
Duhlicious (I spelled that wrong on purpose!)
Serve hot sprinkled with the chopped parsley and a little extra salt.
For dinner with Dave and Jody we had these Potatoes with Filet Mignon, Mushrooms and Onions sauteed with white wine and cream, and a Fiesta Salad.
For dessert we had Milk Chocolate & Hazelnut filled Brioche Bites.
And Dear mixed up a Kensington Dream for Jody and I.
Good Friends, good food, good conversation, good times….
And with all this fun I’m having you’ll understand why I’m a little slow in getting around blog world today to comment…
As of June 2017 Photobucket has blacked out all my photos that I had stored there and are holding them hostage. Hopefully I can update my photos on all the posts they have ruined, over 4000 of them.
