Working Night Dinner

I needed to make dinner AND work until 8:45PM. Luckily, I see my clients footsteps from my kitchen, so I could prep everything before 5:00, preheat the oven as my 5:30 client drove up, and run in the house before my 7 PM client to put the pork roast in the oven.

Brad got home at 8, and put in the prepared potatoes and carrots. I was done with clients at 8:45, and we ate at 8:50.

We had pork roast, Cheddar-Sage potatoes, and Jerry's Honey Roasted Carrots.

Cheddar-Sage Potatoes:

3 large russet potatoes, sliced thinly and boiled until tender, drained
1 T. butter
8-10 sage leaves, chopped
1 c. cream (I used half and half)
3 oz. cheddar cheese
3 oz. white cheddar
salt and pepper to taste

Cook sliced potatoes until tender. Saute sage leaves in butter. Layer half the potatoes, half the cheese in a greased 3 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with half the sage, salt and pepper. Repeat with remaining potatoes, cheese, sage, salt and pepper. Pour cream over top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

This is just one of the examples of why Brad must appreciate and adore you so much. You definitely deserve those lovely daffodils. I love the sense of juggling and management of time that you describe. The potatoes look oh so good!

Those potatoes stopped me in my tracks haha!


Wow, Palma I am even more impressed with how you can multi-task! As Barb mentioned above, you have some awesome sense of time management and juggling work and cooking / prep time. Someone like me would have gone to the closest take out place. You are one amazing woman!!!
