Yet more roast potatoes

The boys made roast potatoes for dinner last night. The theme was (clue: stars and stripes in roasting tin) largely American, in honour of their cousins ... a Golden Gate bridge, a Grand Canyon, a few Bart Simpsons, a Micky Mouse, a fabulous hamburger. Alfred tried to make a tractor with moving parts, but it wouldn't reassemble after the potatoes were cooked. They did, however, manage a working chest of drawers. My father was given an Eiffel Tower - much better than the one Horatio made a couple of years ago, this one was edible all the way through (the dogs wouldn't eat the earlier effort).

Once again, I got a flower with a hole in it, and we all know that roast potatoes with holes in taste sweeter .... if you don't believe me, I urge you to conduct your own tasting

I like the airplane! Lovely tomatoes, what a feast, also for us, for the recipes (tartufo!).

Airplane and Eiffel Tower, those are grand.
I know I would love a few nights of these roast potatoes.

The plane was accompanied by a cruise ship ... but the Eiffel Tower was the star of the show!

Labelga - that tartufo is really worth trying ..

Next time you're in Europe, Tanna, make some time for roasties here, and I'll get the carvers to work
