Okay, ladies and gents, it’s time for an easy new dish AND time to give away a little prize!
Have you ever stopped to ponder just how marvelous is a potato? I mean, they come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. And in the old days, they could be kept for months in a dark shed, root cellar, or basement. Of course, with today’s refrigerators, it’s easy enough to stick them in there to prolong their lives, but I don’t recommend it, because the starches too quickly turn to sugar that way and change the flavor of the potato. You might argue that point. It’s okay. You may.
Potatoes are just so versatile. They can be cooked so many ways as their own side dish, as in today’s recipe, or they can be added to soups and stews to make them thick and hardy. What’s not to like about a potato?
Recently, a resourceful lady named Shermona contacted me through my blog about her Creole Soul seasoning mix. She shared with me how she grew up in Baton Rouge, moved to Pennsylvania, and just might make her way back to Louisiana. Well, I’d like to give her a big bayou welcome by sharing one of her potato recipes with you today. I cooked it for supper tonight, and they family LOVED it. So please offer her a warm bayou welcome below. And I offer her a big thanks for contacting me and sending me the seasonings. She has more recipes on YouTube, so please check her out!
Also, she’s giving away a packet of her Creole Soul Seasoning to one lucky reader who leaves a comment below. So, please bring on those comments, and in a few days, I will do a random drawing.
