Golden

11 Nov

Hello Glamourites,

First of all an apology for being very MIA and not constant lately, right now school is at that max and I just feel like I’m on the go all the time! Only a month now until Christmas holidays so yay! I found this recipe for roasted smashed potatoes which looks absolutely delicious. Being a student I am always looking for meals or recipe that are simple, minimal ingredients and taste good {of course}. Getting a bag of baby potatoes is not very expensive and keeps really well in the fridge for awhile. Credit to Deliciously Declassified blog for the recipe! Check it out xx Glamour Planner

Smashed-potato-ariel-730x1024

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lb. baby red bliss or yukon gold potatoes (you want them to be small – like, golfball size – about 18 potatoes)
  • 6 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped (feel free to substitute with rosemary, basil, garlic, parmesan)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Preheat the oven to 500°F
  • Wash and scrub the potatoes and place them on a rimmed baking sheet pan
  • Fill the pan with 3/4 cup water and cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil
  • Place the potatoes on the bottom rack for 25-30 minutes or until they are tender (check by piercing through the foil with a knife)
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven and blot the remaining water with a paper towel
  • Allow the potatoes to cool for 10 minutes before coating them with 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Once the potatoes are coated in oil, smash each one with a potato masher (you could also use a fork or even the back of another sheet pan); you want them 1/3″ – 1/2″ thick
  • Drizzle the smashed potatoes with the remaining 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sprinkle your herbs on the potatoes and season generously with salt and pepper
  • Place back in the oven on the top rack for 15 minutes and then lower to the bottom rack for an additional 20-25 minutes or until well browned

DELICIOUS HEELS~

Sweater season is more than upon us now as winter has slowly creeped into our lives. The only things I look forward too in this cold blizzard season is, sweaters, hot chocolate and CHRISTMAS. But lets just focus on one of those topics today. The amount of sweaters to choose from is in the thousands of thousands, it can be just a tad overwhelming.
