I had some witty lines, snarky comments and hilarity all wrapped up in this post. Then I accidentally deleted the whole thing. I seriously had a heart attack.
I started over from scratch but I no longer have it in me to be funny, happy or excited. I'm tired and annoyed. So here it is...
The Potato Ho Down Roundup...in all it's bare-bones glory....grrrrrrrrrr....
Are you seeing the crunchy edges? Potato Ho LouLou (Elra's Cooking) from California sent over this amazing Pomme Anna. Isn't it beautiful?
The bacon, OMG the bacon. Sloopy Ann (The Other Side of Fifty) from Buckeye, Indiana sent over Bacon, Leek and Potato Soup. I would eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner! It sounds like an amazing combination.
I love rustic looking dishes. Girly Girly Marie (Spinach Tiger) sent over Dijon Garlic Roasted Potatoes, made with Dijon mustard, garlic, thyme, olive oil and panko breadcrumbs.
The Sporadic Cook, Prince Lynette, has made an amazing, amazing Potato-Crusted Quiche with Smoked Cheddar and Canadian Bacon. This is some serious potato grub. I love it.
Spicy Potato Samosas with Raita Dipping Sauce came to us by way of Peewee Ann (Life's a Feast) all the way from France. These look so light and airy. I'm sure I could eat a hundred. "A Spicy Bollywood-inspired potato Samosa served with a creamy, cool, tangy Raita dipping sauce (and made to celebrate my son's acceptance to Architecture School)." Congratulations!
Here is a beautiful entry from Potato Ho Popcorn Jeanne (The Cooking Photographer) from Moscow, Idaho. A Grilled Potato, Asparagus & Lemony Goat Cheese Pizza. "Purple potatoes on pizza guarantees you get both color and double starches in your diet." I'm in!
Five Star Foodie has graced us with Fleur De Sel Roasted Potatoes with Truffled Aioli. She made these as part of her daughter's "all things French" birthday party. It was quite the food celebration. Madame Kartoshka says, "These French-inspired roasted baby potatoes are seasoned with the delicate Fleur De Sel and served with truffled aioli." Yes, they are.
Potato Ho Frosty Gay (Big Sis Lil Sis) sent over these gorgeous looking Roasted Potato Slices with a Rosemary-Garlic Crust. I love the color and the crust of course.
Trixie Belle's, from California, (Pages, Pucks and Pantry) Twice-Baked Potatoes with Greek Yogurt. This is a Martha Stewart recipe so you just know it's good! "A mashed potato recipe with a tangy kick." Yummy.
Here is something I made, Sparky Marie's (Noble Pig), Lemon-Tatoes. These are delicious, you must try them!
Potato Ho Bob Brent (Cooking Stuff) made this incredible Roast Beef Hash from what he had in the kitchen. "Roast beef hash made with some leftover top round roast, potatoes and onion. Simple and delicious." I want it.
The Potato Ho influence has even reached Italy and Chube Gra (Erbe In Cucina) sent over Potato Pie with Parsley. "It's a salad pie, with a potato slice as the base and three different kinds of cheese for the filling." Wow, three different cheeses, I love it.
Potato Dumplings with Feta Cheese were sent over by Clara Red (Redheaded Kitchen). She had this to say, "This national dish of Slovakia is my one true comfort food." It sounds amazing...the cheese, oh my.
A second entry from the Big Sis Lil Sis crew, this one is from Big Sis, Wolfie Lee, Sun-dried Tomato-Cream Potato Salad. I love the idea of flavoring this with sun-dried tomatoes. It sounds delicious. "This recipe with a twist combines new potatoes with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, chives and low-fat Greek yogurt. How bad could that be?" I don't think it could be bad.
Roasted Potato Leek Soup was sent to us by Bunny Marie (Lisa is Cooking) from Austin, Texas. "Barefoot Contessa's incredible Roasted Potato Leek Soup. I declared this the mac and cheese of soup." Wow.
Potato Ho Wally Marie (Let Them Eat Cake...and all things baked) proclaimed, From Throw Down to Ho Down...Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill Southwestern Potato Salad is a real winner.
Madame Lola Lynde (One Perfect Bite) from Oregon made Potato Gratin a la Flamande. "A gratin of potatoes cooked with onions and beer." Sounds wonderful to me.
The fabulous Lulu Larue (Snooty Primadona's Guide To Cooking Like a Diva) from Texas made Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes. This is an awesome way to use up leftovers for sure.
And here is another one of my entries, Smashed Potatoes with Goat Cheese and Chives, they are fabulous!
Thanks to everyone for participating, it was another great month for the Potato Ho Down.
