Well, a lot of people accomplished a lot of things today. Some people accomplished 26.2 things, others, 13.1 . . . miles, that is. Today was marathon/mini day here in Louisville, which meant I had to get up at 6:00 a.m. to take Todd for bike patrol duty.
I briefly had big thoughts of doing grocery shopping, cleaning house, and generally being productive while all those people were being so industrious. But, in the end, I came back home and slept. Even Sam and Penny slept.
Ah, the lazy Saturday. There's not much better. A good book and some bad TV, and that's really all a body needs. I did actually do the grocery shopping, but at a much more humane hour. And, I managed to work in an afternoon nap. I feel so accomplished!
Big Saturday evening plans include two of my dad's steaks, a bottle of wine, and some outdoor knitting (if I'm feeling up to it after the day's strenuous events). Since I hope to post the occasional fun recipe, I thought I'd start with our summertime favorite: garbage potatoes. Not a recipe, really, which is why it's perfect for the laziest of Saturday nights. I think tonight, ours will use some of the blue cheese I bought at Costco . . . yum!
Cut the potatoes into cubes, boil and drain. Add in sour cream to taste and your garbage. Stir together. I recommend stirring rather "vigorously" so the potatoes are sort of "semi-mashed". I always add lots of salt and pepper at the end.
*Garbage includes anything in your fridge you want to get rid of. Shopping specifically for garbage potato ingredients is discouraged and sometimes laughed at, but I confess to doing it to produce the perfect garbage potatoes. Some of the best "garbage" are shredded cheese, green onions, bacon crumbles, salsa, horseradish, garlic, etc., etc., etc.
