Blue Potatoes Make the Prettiest Mashed Potatoes
Cameron has been working at a farm close to home. No, he has not become a famer. They are building a bakery and he has been working on that. They are going to be baking organic goods made with ingredients that they are going to grow on their farm. Pretty neat idea and I can't wait to taste the goods. Apparently they grow a lot of different potatoes. Yesterday Cameron came home with a bag full of blue potatoes for me. So today we used them for garlic mashed potatoes. So pretty. It almost looks like frosting. And they taste deeeeelicious! Good for you too, blue potatoes have more antioxidants than any of the other colored potatoes.
Isn't it pretty? One odd thing about these blue potatoes. The potatoes are a deep rich blue color, when you cut them open they are a vibrant or dark purple. The water they are boiled in however, is almost a teal color. Amazing how many colors this one little veggie produces.
In other deeeeelicious food news, this week Rachel and I went over to a friends house to scrapbook. We are swapping yummy dessert/goodie treats each week. This is what she made for us this week:
Oh my! SOOOO deeeeelicious. I couldn't find the nutrition information, but these were very light. 3 pointsplus each for those of you counting Weight Watchers PointsPlus points. Thank you T!!!!!!!
Last week Rachel made these really yummy meringue cookies. But alas, they were so delicious, they were eaten before I could take a picture. Soooo, that means she will just have to make them again. (HINT HINT!!)
Stay tuned for next Monday's goodie. I promise you will not be disappointed!
