I can't believe it's already Thursday! Whew!
School is wearing me out. I have had a WONDERFUL first week with kids, but I have also been working long hours and coming home worn out!! I'm really going to have to work hard to fulfill my blog goal of posting at least every other day! I obviously failed this week!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Not to toot my own horn, but I really liked my top ten school/office supply post, so I thought I would do one for my favorite kitchen gadgets! So... here are some kitchen tools and utensils that I use ALL. THE. TIME! I wouldn't want to be without them! (In no certain order...)

The Sunday Stills challenge this week was: Clouds
My blog is G rated, so I won't put any caption under this picture. I honestly hope this doesn't offend anyone. I was shopping one day at the avenue and just looked up and there it was - this funny looking cloud! I didn't have my camera with me, so I snapped it on my cell phone. You can interpret the shape of the cloud as you wish - it just makes me laugh. Lily calls it an "elephant trunk" but I see something a little different...

These are THE BEST smashed potatoes on the planet!
2 Medium Garlic Bulbs
1 Tbs Olive Oil
6 Bacon Slices
1/4 c Milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp pepper
16 oz Sour Cream
1 1/2 c Shredded Cheddar
1/3 c Butter
4 lb. Red Potatoes
Cut top off garlic, drizzle with oil, roast in foil at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Coll, Squeeze out garlic (will be paste like), and set aside.
Cook bacon and crumble.
Peel half the potatoes, cut all potatoes into cubes, and boil until fork tender.
Drain potatoes and place in a large bowl. Smash garlic, bacon, sour cream, 1 c cheese, butter, milk, salt, and pepper into the potatoes.
When all is well combined, transfer to a 9x13 greased baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes until cheese melts.
These potatoes fly of the table they're so good! Well worth the extra time!!!

The Sunday Stills challenge this week was: "Graffiti/Street Art"
I have been SICK this week (fever, soar throat, aches... the whole bit!). Going out to take photos was out of the question since I haven't "been out" for anything except for a trip to the doctor and pharmacy. Because of this, I had to use my archives and a very loose interpretation of graffiti/street art. Enjoy!
