Let the Food Speak for Itself

I don't have much to say in my post tonight. I could probably come up with some funny or witty little story to throw in here but I won't. This is what we had for dinner tonight and it was great which is why it's in my blog in the first place. ; ) The scalloped potato recipe is my favorite, I haven't made it in a while, so I made it tonight to go with our barbecue chicken and roasted broccoli. So try it, you'll like it. And that's about all I've got to say. ; P

PS: If you're reading this and you have a blog, you know you have posts like this too. And if you don't, you know you want to sometimes. : )

Scalloped Potatoes

5-6 red potatoes, washed and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 a large onion, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream (or whole milk)
1 Tbsp italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or blend of cheeses
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. In a dutch oven or other heavy pan melt 2 Tbsp butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook 3-4 minutes until the onion cooks down a little. Add the garlic and italian seasoning and cook about a minute. Next add the chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper. Place the sliced potatoes into the pan, cover and let simmer about 10 minutes, until the potatoes are slightly tender. Top with the cheese and place the pan into the oven for about 15 minutes. Let sit 10 min before serving.

wow, those potatoes look so good. they definitely speak for themselves! it's funny because i really wanted to do a post like this one last night. i just didn't feel like going into a long, drawn out explanation of my food. but i tried it anyway and now i realize i've left stuff out. maybe i should have just posted pics and the recipe ;-)

anyway! your dinner looks amazing. that bbq chicken is calling my name...
