It’s potato season for me. I. Love. Potatoes. We’re getting them regularly from the CSA, and we’re mostly getting golden or red ones. I like chopping them up, tossing them with oil and salt and roasting them. Then, for breakfast the next day, I’ll fry up any leftover potatoes in bacon grease. Mmm. I’m not the only one who like the potatoes, either; Phoebe loves them. This morning she had 5 or 6 potato chucks, and probably ate about half of what I gave her. With a fork. I preloaded the fork for her, but still. Cute.

Other than that, we’ve mostly been eating leftovers, beans & rice, and clearing out the last of our whole wheat pasta. For protein, we’re slowly chipping away on the huge summer sausage I bought at Costco a week or two ago. Yum!

What have you been eating?
