Makin Taters.

Most nights Tim cooks dinner. He's better at it (seriously) and finds it relaxing and enjoyable whereas I tend to find it stressful probably because I always insist on trying a new recipe. Sometimes, like tonight, I get all domestic and homemakery and map out a whole meal plan. On today's menu it was

Balsamic Broccolini

That's like, straight out of a Jamie Oliver's School Dinners episode. Except put together by me. BAM! And it was delicious! And healthy! Here is a grainy picture that you probably already saw on Facebook. If you want to see fancy photos, click the links above for the recipes. Also, some tips:

  1. To keep the burgers from drying out, I put white cooking wine in the pan (you could probably just use water as well)
  2. I doubled the Tator Tot recipe and left them in the oven probably 5-10 mins longer so they were really crispy on the outside.
  3. I would use half the sugar recommended for the Blueberry Pie. I also cheated and used an organic whole wheat pastry crust for my base, because who has time for all those confusing directions on how to make your own. Not this gal.
  4. Most importantly, make sure you haven't started heating up the skillet before STICKING YOUR FINGERS IN IT to spread the oil around. Brutal. I don't have any feeling in my finger tips except stinging.
