Crochet & Potatoes

It's been quite blustery in North Idaho lately, Rain, snow, wind, cold, you know the drill. So I've been doing a lot of cooking, cleaning & crocheting.
I decided to do a striped scarf, using this color scheme I found on pinterest.
I'm really loving all the color samples on pinterest, it really is inspiring to make things beautiful.

Besides color schemes on pinterest, I've been loving the new recipe ideas that I'm finding. The new recipes have also inspired me to make different things that I've been wanting to try, like this Scalloped potato recipe....

Microwave scalloped potatoes

1 1/2 pounds Idaho russet potatoes, sliced
Salt & Pepper to taste
6 Tbsps Butter
1 Cup Colby Jack Cheese, shredded
1 Cup Chicken Broth

Arrange 1/2 of the potatoes in an 8x8 inch glass dish, overlapping potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and dot with 3 Tbsps butter, sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheese. Arrange rest of potatoes, season, and dot with rest of butter, reserve other 1/2 of cheese. Pour broth over top and microwave for 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Sprinkle with rest of cheese and broil for 2 to 3 minutes on high broil or until golden brown.

They turned out so yummy, there wasn't any leftovers :)

Don't forget about my Scrapbook Software giveaway! Read my post above for all the details.
