Thanks Pacanis for reminding me I have to peel and cut a few potatoes and put them in water for FF tonight. The Pirate is coming over to spend a couple of hours and eat while he is watching TV with me.

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods, I love them cooked any which way. I have also eaten a few slices raw with a little salt (in my younger days).

Working on a new version of hash browns with Andouille sausage. Everything is diced and ready, but I'm not hungry yet.

I love potatoes, too, and still remember my mother giving me a piece or two when cutting fries.

I'm spending way too much time exploring Pinterest. Excuses: Need to help design a garden for master gardener class, need to design a plan for our backyard redo, need to decorate a bathroom, need to finish decorating the sitting/guest room upstairs. So much to think about doing!

Trying to figure out who took my brain while I was sleeping last night. Made bread dough this morning. It's cold today and in the kitchen it's not as warm as it needs to be to help that bread dough rise. So the sensible thing is to warm the oven, turn it off, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise - I always do it this way. Fast forward to 4 hours later. I'm thinking baked potatoes would be nice with dinner ... go to oven and crank that baby up to 400. A few minutes later I'm wondering what that smell is ... OMG it's the plastic wrap melding with my bread dough that I left in the oven I ALWAYS open the oven and check for gremlins or whatever before I turn it on .. first time I've done this .. hope it's the last !

They may have taken your brains, but they left your nose to smell your disasters. How kind of them.
