At the Farmer's Market this weekend, we bought some tiny little fingerling potatoes. Have you ever had these?
They are very small and finger-shaped. I took some of the larger ones, par boiled them and then cut them into little slices.
I put a bit of vegetable oil and a couple pats of butter in the pan and fried them until crispy. Then I sprinkled salt, pepper and a few chives on top.
They were quite tasty...sort of like round french fries. DH loved them,so I will have to remember to cook them like this again next year.
I went out after work today and cut the three large hydrangeas flowers I had blooming. I decided to use them inside where I would appreciate them more.
Aren't they just perfect with this vintage tablecloth? The old cloth has pink and purple hydrangeas just like I had blooming.
I also decided today was the day to paint a picture frame that I have had sitting around in the basement for three years. I bought the paint Saturday, but it was raining all weekend. It didn't take long at all to spray paint it.
It should be dry so I am on my way out to see if I need to do any touch ups. My fingers are crossed that I got it right on the first try. It's not likely, but stranger things have happened.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
