Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Works-for-Me Wednesday: Home Fries

I'm a potato girl through and through. I love them in any form...at least, any form that's tasty. My weakness? French fries.

I've found a quick way to make some yummy home fries using an apple wedger. Just cut the potato in half, then placing the potato with the flat side on the cutting board use the apple wedger the same way you cut an apple.

It makes for quick home fries. I usually put the cut potatoes in a bowl with 2TBSP of olive oil, salt/pepper, and a bit of garlic powder, then put them in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes (depending on how crispy you like them).

My mom had an apple wedger when I was growing up. I've never gotten one, thinking I'd just slice the apples. This is a cool tip, though, and may just be my excuse to get another kitchen tool!

That sounds good! My husband likes to FRY things, so I'll have to convince him to try your baking method. :)

This sounds yummy! I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for the idea!

I've done something simiilar with a bag of frozen Italian Style veggi's, but hadn't thought of potato slices.
