Cucumbers and Cumin Salad
I was going to go grocery shopping tonight but this happened:
I MEAN, LOOK AT THAT! I haven’t been neglecting him or anything but Bacon has these random moments where he’s just really cuddly and quiet, not psychotic and hyper. So for dinner, with the very little produce I had on hand, I ended up throwing together a cumin-seasoned salad.
Some people might not think about using ground cumin for a cold salad, especially with cucumbers, but it’s actually quite tasty. Oh, and it’s vegan friendly too!
Hasselback Fingerling Potatoes
I love the way the way hasselback potatoes look and I love how crunchy they can get too. I had a bunch of fingerling potatoes and was curious to see how they would look and taste when “hasselbacked.” I was hoping that prepping this way would make them a little crunchier too. I was also tempted to shove some cheese or garlic butter in between the cuts but it seemed like too much work. It ended up being very…uh…alien. See?
This is probably one of the more nonsensical things I’ve made this year. They don’t look crispy but believe me, they are.
This recipe is meant to be a side dish for dinner, but I could probably live off of it alone because I love potatoes (I mean, duh — look at the name of this blog). They also taste really amazing the next day re-roasted and reincarnated as mini loaded baked potatoes covered in green onions, cheddar cheese, and bacon.
