anybody else got a weakness for ticking?

just can't resist ticking - it has that old fashioned grandma-ish appeal to it

you know, like in "Grandma's featherbed"

for this runner i used red ticking rather than the traditional blue

it just seemed right for the fall and Christmas season

i love the way the ends fray

rosemary potatoes - who loves fall comfort food??

have you noticed how much we all start to think about food in the fall!!

my go-to fall comfort food is potato

pretty much in any shape or form...

so, i thought i'd share with you the rosemary potatoes i made for dinner last night



don't they look yummy

here's how, super simple:

wash potatoes and cut into quaters
drizzle with evoo (be generous), garlic seasoning and rosemary

i use this evoo

and this garlic seasoning

this is the dried rosemary, very fragrant

lay potatoes out on a lined baking sheet

bake at 375F till crispy and done


do you have a favorite fall comfort food??
