spudly speaking of course

hen Reeni asked me to host the upcoming BSI (blogger secret ingredient) naturally I was flattered as all get out but I had to play it cool and aloof so as not to come off over excited. Well since no one really saw me 'playing it cool' it looks like the cool was spent only on me and naturally the over excitement has passed so now its time to get down to the business at hand and that is picking an ingredient. I am in wonderful company and the previous ingredients were nothing less than excellent, I wish I could get the easy way out and duplicate one but I wont. Did you check out the blueberry extravaganza? All the links are here so go and see and a big CONGRATULATIONS to Katherine at Smoky Mountan Cafe - she walks away with the blueberry bragging rights!



Can you believe, to my amazement, that no one has picked one of the most well liked ingredients this world has to offer.




Here is the little problem: I will be flying (the whole fam damily) from New York City to Anchorage, Alaska at 8:00 am Sunday morning - I would like to wrap this particular BSI up on Saturday if it is at all possible...normally the secret ingredient is announced on Monday so I am giving a head start as well.




I made a little gratin of some eastern potatoes (skin on - I like it rustic) and sliced onion with shrimp. The beauty of the potato is its versatility - the sky is the limit. Good luck and have fun with Potatoes.

Guess what? I was contemplating choosing potatoes as the BSI too when I ws host! I'm so surprised it hasn't been chosen as a BSI yet, it is SO versatile! I'll try to submit something in!

Love your choice of potato as BSI! I'm expecting guests tomorrow and will be tied up for a week. But I'll try to send something. Happy hosting :)

Reeni♥ said...

Great choice! I was waiting in suspense to see what you would chose. I like my skins on too - this gratin looks extra yummy with shrimp. How lucky your family is - did I tell you I'm up for adoption?

Congrats to Katherine! Her recipes are always extraordinary!

Good choice. That's a fine looking dish of potatoes and shrimp which has succeeded in making me ready for lunch early!

This is a tough one! Pretty much everything and anything has been done to a potato at some point but I like the challenge and know just the recipe! :)

Hi, A couple of people pointed me to your site for BSI. Love the choice of potatoes, they're a favorite vice of mine. I've been known to eat them raw. Anyway, I just posted a recipe that fits with the theme and they recommended I submit it. Here goes:
