From my last post of a light refreshing salad to these Loaded Smashed Potatoes. Well, life is all about balance I guess. I have been playing around with versions of these for a long time. While I am not a big lover of chips or fries, I couldn’t resist the description of dirty fries on […]
I haven’t posted in almost a month which to be honest isn’t all that unusual at this time of year. I had 2 weeks off work and had no intention of turning on a laptop during this time. We didn’t go anywhere but spent really gorgeous days doing walks and playing tourist near home. […]
