EwE - pesto potatoes

The theme  this week in my Ellie group was Savvy Salads.  Instead of a green salad or a fruit salad I chose to make this potato salad.  If you follow my blog you know that we are potato lovers at this house!   I made hamburger sliders to go along with these.  Potato salad can be a really nice complement to a hamburger occasionally instead of chips or fries the traditional sides!

We just got back from traveling to Waco Texas where we checked out Chip and Joanna's Magnolia Place.  It was fun to actually be there, but the prices are a little high!  Anyway after I travel it takes me a couple days to get back in the mood to cook.  Are you like that too?

EwE Guiltless Potatoes Au Gratin

This week in my Ellie Kreiger group the theme was "one potato two potato."   We are big potato fans at this house so it was right up my alley. I checked online and found these scalloped potatoes. Ellie always tries to make everything a little bit healthier so I enjoy her recipes and feel better about eating this delicious food!  This was a simple recipe.  You simply cook the potatoes in boiling water. While you're cooking those you make a paste of flour and milk and garlic. I got my paste a little thick but it was fine anyway.   And of course cheese makes everything better!   So this recipe is a win-win.
