I've got herb club this evening and am truly excited about going. It's the herb exchange. Each one of us brings an extra herb we have dug up from our gardens and exchange it for something that someone else has brought. I've come home many an evening with something I've never had in my garden. It's a lovely idea that you might try for some of your clubs, be it herbs, flowers or vegetables. We always have an herb exchange every year early in the Spring in order to give the plants their best shot at life.
That being said I'm going to have to fix supper a little earlier so I can get out of here to be on time for the meeting. I think we're just going to have meatloaf and Scored Potatoes. Have you ever eaten Scored Potatoes? So-o-o easy and delicious all at the same time. I think I picked the actual recipe up from Taste of Home. You just take your baking potatoes, slice them in half lengthwise, then slice each half widthwise about 6 times but don't slice them all the way through. This will enable you to barely fan the potatoes. Put them in a shallow greased dish, brush the potatoes with about a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle with paprika, freshly minced parsley, salt and pepper. I also like to chop up some chives too and mix them in with the parsley. Then bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until tender. Then drizzle a little more butter over them before serving. They are simply WONDERFUL!!!! This really works for Hubby, especially because he gets so tired of baked potatoes (I never get tired of baked potatoes), plus it eliminates the need for sour cream. You can use some but it's good as is. It's also the perfect dish for we smaller families. Try them sometime. You won't regret it.
I'm all dressed, the meatloaf and Scored Potatoes are in the oven. The salad is prepared and I already baked an Apple Crisp for dessert. That ought to fix 'em up!! As soon as I get it on the table I'll be off for herb club with my Sweet Marjoram and Sweet Basil for the exchange. Have a nice evening.
