The Papa Spud’s Experiment - Weeks 4

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:

  1. Wash
  2. Chop
  3. Cover in olive oil, garlic and salt & pepper
  4. Roast for 15-20 min

If you haven’t ever tried it, I highly recommend it.

A Party Must Have
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:
  1. Add fresh lemon and lime flavor
  2. Make your margarita look extra festive
  3. 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:
·      Spice up the ordinary
·      Turn your favorites extra yummy
·      Master the margarita trifecta

Happy Papa Spud’s-ing :-)

Until next time,
