Stack 'em up

Recently we headed to the fancy downtown library to get our library cards! Yep, we finally went and applied for our Utah driver licenses so it was time to get to the books. Alan has recently taken up being artsy so we got some art books. Frankie could have gotten a card but we decided to wait until he understood what it meant. The big library is quite nice and has shops around the base of it. Tiny guy enjoyed being carried around, he even growled at a few people. When we were checking out he was so excited that the girl checking us out commented that he must really like art books. :)

Another recent food experiment, potato stacks. I love potatoes in any form and these were fun just to build up. And yes, I recommend a mandoline. I love my mandoline!!!

We piggishly ate 3 stacks each but I'm sure 2 stacks a person would suffice.


Serves 6

3 white/yukon gold potatoes
1 large yam/sweet potato
(whichever has orange flesh)
Olive oil
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Slice the potatoes into thin discs.
2. Toss the slices with the rosemary and olive oil in a bowl. Add as much salt and pepper as you see fit.
3. Stack the slices, alternating white with orange, in muffin tins
4. Bake 25 minutes or until tender and browning on the edges.

  1. The potato stacks sound so delicious - and congratulations on your library cards. Kudos to Frankie for sitting up all by himself!
