November 10, 2008 | By Adam Roberts | 210 Comments You know you’ve done something right with broccoli when the person you made it for describes it to someone else the next day as “better than biting into a steak .” Those were Craig’s words and they were a marked change from the first words he uttered about the broccoli, before he bit in: “You made broccoli for dinner? Broccoli and sweet potatoes?”
How do you like your potatoes? Fried, baked, mashed, au gratin? Everyone in my family likes them different. Everytime I my husband to the grocery store with a list he comes home with the everything on the list plus at least one bag of chips. He can kill a bag of chips in a sitting. I, on the other hand, can take or leave chips.
There are french fries and there are oven-roasted fries , both delicious in their own right. What we’ve been craving is something in between. A potato wedge with the light crispiness of a french fry, but with the creamy sweetness of a slow-baked oven potato. We think we’ve found the perfect recipe.
Another year is gone and we are all set with a new beginning, new dreams and new resolutions! The last few days of every year are a little bittersweet for me. The days are full of celebrations and color and smiles but in the back of your mind you always think that this is going to end very soon and life will be again back to the grind. This time was no different! All the celebrations are over, we are all back to business although still a little hung over! But for us, although the party is over, it is not at all boring around here!
Lately, I’ve been experiencing some seriously debilitating migraines and I’m unsure what to do about it. I have a feeling it might be from sitting at my desk at work all day – my neck and shoulders are really tight and uncomfortable, so I think that might be triggering my migraines. I figured, who better to ask than you good people. I’m sure that everyone has had a problem like this, especially when they first started their “grown up” jobs. What do you do to combat headaches?
