Believe it or not, it’s time for Week 4 of my fabulously fun Papa Spud’s Experiment. I’ve got to tell you, this has been more fun than I expected. From the excitement of fresh fruits and veggies sitting on the doorstep every Wednesday afternoon to the fun food experiments and general yumminess.
I only wish I had more time to cook. If there were more hours in the day or days in the week I would have tried 50 new recipes! One day…. For now I will just have to share with you the fun that was had this week – a yummy fresh favorite and a party must have.
Yummy Fresh Favorite
Roasted red potatoes are one of my favorite easy side dishes for an easy weeknight dinner. It doesn’t get much easier than:
- Cover in olive oil, garlic and salt & pepper
- Roast for 15-20 min
If you haven’t ever tried it, I highly recommend it.
This week I again planned ahead (woo hoo!) and ordered a few extra items for a party over the weekend. I was planning to make margaritas and you can’t have an awesome margaritas without fresh lemons and limes so I stocked up!
BUT, it did not simply squeeze these beautiful fruits into my margaritas, I had them do double duty, well triple duty really. The night before the party I sliced all of the lemons and limes:
Once they were sliced, I put them all into a freezer bag and popped them into the freezer:
Why would I freeze them? I’m so glad you asked! Frozen lemons and limes are the party trifecta:
- Add fresh lemon and lime flavor
- Make your margarita look extra festive
- Keep your margarita cold without watering it down
Does it get any better?
So, over the past few weeks we have learned that having a Papa Spud’s box delivered to your door can:
· Turn your favorites extra yummy
· Master the margarita trifecta
Happy Papa Spud’s-ing :-)
Until next time,
