Mike, You’re So Refreshing
Monday morning – we meet again.
Let’s back up – I had some pretty good eats yesterday. I did quite a bit of snacking, but I enjoyed a delicious breakfast that included poached eggs on toast, turkey bacon, and some watermelon and sliced banana on the side.
We ended up spending pretty much all afternoon at the pool in the sun and it was hot-hot-hot. Hot means refreshing drinks were needed. Including this:
I’m not really into a lot of girly drinks (though I love a good Cosmo) but these things are the absolute most refreshing thing during the summer.
I’m just happy to see that “Mike” finally listened to my 500 letters that I sent the last 4 summers of my life requesting they put this stuff in a huge ass can instead of just a small glass bottle. It is just so convenient, ya know?
Anyway, after all that – it was time for dinner. We grilled some steaks, steamed some asparagus, baked some crescent rolls (per Torrance’s request), and I made some crashed potatoes.
If you havent experienced some crashed potatoes, I highly recommend it…
Now, I’m going to be honest here. I had all intentions of taking pictures of the process and sharing the super easy recipe with you, but after spending lots of quality time all afternoon long with Mike, it was a miracle I even cooked dinner and didn’t burn myself, slice my finger open, drop a whole carton of eggs on the floor, or forget to turn the oven on and not realize until 30 minutes later when the timer went off when my food was “done” (yes all of those things have happened). I mean really, it resembled an episode of Andrea’s My Drunk Kitchen.
So, I promise next time, I will take some pictures to show ya how it’s done. I would share the recipe without it, but it is actually somewhat hard to explain – pictures always help right?
