We made it through January! Oh, it wasn't easy by any means, and I know I have been a bit absent here on the Spoons lately, but y'all that flu took me down for weeks and there wasn't much 'food talk' around here, I tell you! But, February is here, and it arrived with a bit of snow and gloomy days, and when it gets so outside, I want to compensate that with sunny and colorful plates, food that will cheer me up, is tasty, and all kinds of good.
This particular side dish might not be the healthiest, with cream and cheese and potatoes in it. But I served it on the side of a herb crusted roasted turkey breast, so that gave it some balance, or so I told myself since I really had been craving carbs the whole time I was sick and I finally had the energy to do something about it.
The recipe is really simple, and if you have a mandoline to cut the veggies with, the preparation of the dish could take even less time. Just remember, safety first!
MY GRADING SCALE:
5 Spoons - Amazing, memorable story that I loved and want to read again. The best of the best and not given lightly
4 Spoons - Fantastic, entertaining story that I enjoyed and connected with and will gladly recommend to readers
3 Spoons - A good story, not much that stood out but I was engaged enough to spend the time to read it through
2 Spoons - A story with some issues, that were a problem to me
1 Spoon - Not for me
