Friday was girls' night. My high school girlfriends and I got together for a night of dinner, drinking, crafting, and general catching up. My friend Dana hosted, so she prepared a turkey roast as our main dish, along with steamed broccoli. Jeanne brought salad, Krystal brought bread and wine, Kristy brought red velvet cheesecake brownies (yum!), and I brought these
potatoes, which I found on Cooking During Stolen Moments
. We had a great time catching up, and we got the chance to spend time with Dana's 4 month old son, who was a complete angel the entire night! Next up for our group, the Christmas party, and I am hosting...I better start planning now!
2 pounds Fingerling Potatoes, cleaned
5 tablespoons Butter, softened
6 Garlic Cloves, minced
1/4 cup Parsley, minced
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
Place the potatoes in a large pot filled with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes. While the potatoes cook, combine the butter, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper until well blended. Drain the potatoes and place them in a serving bowl. Immediately dollop the butter mixture on top of the potatoes, stirring a few times to coat evenly.
Just for fun, here is the craft we made. It is a ribbon Christmas tree. It was super easy, but a little tedious. Add wine into the mix and it took us each about 2 hours to complete our tree!
