Are all of your heads still swimming with pie hangover?

I think that’s one thing I didn’t have enough of.

Potatoes? I had plenty. We went to Idaho for Thanksgiving. I think it’s an unwritten Idaho law that a giant pile of (real) mashed potatoes be on every Thanksgiving table.

Something like this….

If it’s not a law, it should be.

Meanwhile, these crispy roasted fingerling potatoes keep me pretty happy the rest of the year.  Even better if you can find the multi-colored ones. My girls got a kick out of eating pink and purple potatoes.

Plus, I love potatoes with lemon and garlic.
