Nothin' Says Lovin'

Hello Friends!  I love this homemade sign that hangs in my kitchen.  It holds my array of tea strainers so they are handy also.  I love tea, and have started growing some different herbs for tea which is fun. :)  I found this sign at a free store and I'll never be giving it away. :)  Helps me to keep in mind that what I do in the kitchen is loving and caring for my family. 

One thing that my family loves to do is to try new things.  One new thing that we found at the grocery was blue potatoes.  Have you tried them?  We thought that since they were so small that we'd slice them up and bake them like we do our  homemade french fries.  So we put them through our food processor (much faster than slicing them by hand). 

Aren't they so pretty on the inside?

We laid them all out on a cookie sheet, rolled them around in some sunflower oil and tucked them in the oven.  They cooked much faster than the regular Yukon Gold ones we are used to and had a stronger flavour as well.  Very delicious!

I served them with meatball sandwiches on homemade buns and it was a great combination.
Yes, we did eat some more vegetables with our meal...but I forgot to put some on the plate. :)

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope  you have a blessed day and remember that working in your kitchen providing good healthy and delicious foods for  your family is a way of loving them.  The Lord Jesus has given us such a wonderful job in caring for our families!  Let us joy in it and not let it be a chore for us.
