I have a very important question for you this Monday morning: What does your family do around the holiday season to give back? Heavy right? Grab a cup of coffee so we can talk about it and I will wait.
I said to my husband last night, “Our kids are basically having life handed to them on a silver platter.” I am not upset that they have a great life. I am so incredibly grateful for all the amazing opportunities that they have handed to them. However, I want them to understand that not everyone has that, and also I want to instill in them a sense of wanting to give back.
I think that these lessons need to happen all year round, but it feels especially apparent right now as I watch the news and see families in California who have lost everything and as we head into the holiday season, which always feels like a time of reflection.
Our family does a few little things, but I definitely think we could do more. And I also want to be creative in how we give back and spread love. So, I legitimately would LOVE to hear what you do. Or just your thoughts on this in general.
And if you just want a recipe for garlic roasted baby potatoes, I mean that’s cool too.
This roasted baby potatoes recipe was a happy little accident! I was making a main dish (coming soon!) and I needed something to photograph with it as a side dish, so I grabbed a bag of baby potatoes at the store. When it came time to shoot, I tossed together a few ingredients and threw them in the oven. Ummm, YUMMY! Those are really the best kinds of recipes and the ones I love sharing with you the most.

Do you remember last week when I made you Baked Potato Wedges? You guys. I actually have several more potato recipes coming your way . . . . I don’t know what my deal is. But I feel like those potato wedges are great for a casual weeknight meal and these are good for that but could also be used for holiday entertaining. So I wanted to make sure you had them before Thanksgiving and Christmas. I will try and space out the rest of my potato madness. Try.
I hope you love these as much as I did!
