Friday potatoes

Friday night Rich and I were exhausted so he came over and we made some delicious potatoes and sausage. We are trying to save money by not eating in restaurants until New Year's. He pointed out that for less than the cost of going out to dinner got a few meals out of this.
Rich sliced onions because I'm a big baby, and he scattered them around on the tray.
Diced potatoes with herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil on top.
While the potatoes and onions started were roasting I sliced chicken sausage and stirred in herbs and olive oil. I grated cheese (fancy schmancy Asiago with rosemary and olive oil from Trader Joe's) and saved some to eat with baguette.
After the potatoes cooked for 20 minutes I added the mushrooms and sausage for another 20. We hung around drinking warm cider with Jameson whiskey and munching on cheese.
Yum, especially with the grated cheese on top! We ate dinner and cuddled on the couch watching Crazy, Stupid Love and The Prestige until late at night. So super relaxing and cozy. Sometimes quiet Friday nights are a million times better than going out.

  1. This looks so delicious and you two are smart because it definitely saves money not eating out. I need to go to the store to get food for dinner, may have to copy your meal :)

  5. Ooh, those potatoes look wonderful! I'm with you - sometimes I just love staying in and being cozy. As much as I'm not crazy about winter, I do love that it gives me a good excuse to wrap up in a big blanket and drink hot tea :)

  8. Seems you guys had a great night :-) You know, I agree with you on "quiet" nights in being more relaxing than nights out. I think staying is sometimes the best way to really talk with eachother and just have a lovely evening :-)
