We’ve officially survived our first day back to school.
I should say I survived. Because the three littles were all happy and without inhibitions about their first day back.
Me, I always spend the first day back to school in a bittersweet state of mind. Because with every new school year, they are so much bigger. Older. Different than the year before.
I’m still scratching my head in disbelief that life is now a whirlwind with two middle-schoolers. We’ve only got one little dude left in elementary school. One will be in high school before I learn how to whistle. Time is crazy quick like that.
Case in point: my lovely sister in law’s family just finished spending a week with us, which was total fun. We just can’t get over how my nephews are like man-boys now. When did that teensy little boy of theirs transform into a collegian? Yikes and wowzers.
And does that mean we the grown-ups are totally old?! You can tell I’m missing those teeny-tiny-little-feet days.
Since we’re on the subject of teeny tiny, I’m just going to move us onto food.
I’m sure you won’t be mad about that 😊
Ever since I found these teeny-tiny new potatoes from TJ’s, we have been hooked. No affiliates; we just 💛 TJ’s to the max.
These teensy potatoes are about the size of big grapes. They’re not always in season, so if you aren’t lucky enough to land upon some adorably cute baby potatoes, just cut your potatoes into 1-inch bite size pieces. Sure, they won’t be all dainty and darling, but they’ll taste amazing.
These Garlic Herb Roasted Baby Potatoes couldn’t be easier. They’re basically a pan sheet deal. Pan sheet recipes are all the rage, so you’re on trend with these potatoes.
Just toss these babies together with herbs, olive oil, and seasoning. Give them a nice roasting for 30 minutes. And you’re done.
Well, you’re kind of done. Because you’ll be asked to keep making these baby potatoes over and over again.
I’m ok with being asked to make these potatoes often. That just means my guys really like them.
No matter what age they are.
