roasted baked potatoes


The other day as my daughter Britta and I were spending our last day by the pool on our vacation, she mentioned that Thanksgiving was just two weeks away! I about had a heart attack! How in the world did THAT happen??? Well, it could have something to do with the fact that I’ve been gone most of November, or it could have something to do with the fact that we’ve been doing some pretty major home remodeling projects for the last couple of months. Whatever it is that allowed this holiday to sneak up so sneakily…I have some quick-thinking to do!
