♬'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' by Amy Winehouse
Another grey and yellow day in London, thunder, rain and sun. Then it starts all over again. Today the rumbling of the sky also made my insides roar and rumble, which meant time to get cooking! First I had to get a good song on; I saw 'Valerie on one of my playlists, and I automatically pumped up the volume and felt even more creative. There is something about this song that just hits the spot, you know the part when Amy sings, 'well sometimes I go out, by myself, and I look across the water'. That's me when I'm gasping for breath on a run, and look across the canal in Hackney, painting a picture in my head of what people are eating on the other side.
Moving forward to my creative shenanigans, I'll keep it short and simple.
I used my cookie cutters on the few potatoes I had left and covered them with olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Slice a potato vertically on its side, and cut out your desired shape. Bake for a minimum of 30 minutes at 200°c, test to see if soft.
Simple. As. That.
Who says potatoes just have to be cut long, wedge shaped, curly or smiley faced? Exactly, find an old school quirky cookie cutter, make some interesting shapes and get herby. Definitely a great activity for kids.
Have a super duper weekend.
I think you know what my favourite song is :)
