Exercise Class, Bowling, Mail,

Went to my exercise class on Wednesday afternoon, the first time I have worked with our new instructor. She certainly came up with a few new things we have never done before.

Today is bowling of course, but just for the two of us. I did increase my average for league play on Monday - as I said, we won 5 points but I won't know our standing until this afternoon.

For a while I haven't been able to use Windows Live Mail on my laptop. Suddenly today (Wed) it started working again. I didn't do anything to it so I have no idea why.  Maybe it was something to do with the internet being off for a while, who knows?

In England we have been making roast potatoes for many a long year. It used to be a specialty of Matt's and we have a friend who doesn't eat a lot, but show her some roast potatoes and she devours them. These produced by Kevin Lynch of Closet Cooking look absolutely gorgeous and I would have trouble limiting my intake too. I don't know what the sauce is, he doesn't say.

Crispy Parmesan Roast Potatoes

Potatoes roasted with parmesan cheese that get all sort of nice and golden brown, crispy and good!
Seriously better than french fries!

1 Tbs oil
1 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
1 Tbs oil
1 1/2 lbs small (1 to 1.5 inch diameter) potatoes, cut in half
salt and pepper to taste

1. Brush the oil on the bottom of a baking dish and sprinkle on the parmesan.

2. Toss the potatoes in the oil, salt and pepper and press into the parmesan with the cut side down.

3. Roast in a preheated 400F/200C oven until the parmesan is nice and golden brown and the potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes, before removing from the oven to let cool for 5 minutes and breaking them apart.

Servings: 4

Author Notes
Season the potatoes with your favourite spices or blend instead of just salt and pepper, like cajun seasoning or taco seasoning or Italian seasoning




Have a great day

  6. I just changed my email from Yahoo because the entire of Yahoo has been compromised according to my husband. My Yahoo emails are being redirected though. The Internet and emails are so glitchy. As they say, turning the computer off and on again can fix things a lot of the time.

    1. Let me know you knew email address then Pinky. I guess my email is Rogers (local) Yahoo. You are so right about rebooting the computer fixing many things.
