My Favorite Roasted Potatoes

I think that since I'm running on three and a half hours of sleep right now (COLLEGE!), I'm going to keep this post short.

I discovered this spice blend during the summer, and I think it's the best way that I have ever personally cooked my own potatoes. This recipe kind of reminds me of fancy restaurant potatoes, so you can pretend you're going out to eat dinner but save lots of money and calories.

Can you tell that I like potatoes? Or maybe that I received a bunch of potatoes in my FARMSHARE this summer? Either way, I'm always #rootveggies4life.

Unfortunately, I thought that I had a photo of this recipe, but apparently I don't (or I fell asleep and this is all a dream). However, take my word for it that these spuds are pretty tasty. Hopefully I'll update this post with a photo later on.

I'll leave you with this picture of some butternut and kabocha squash because those are kind of like potatoes and OMG IT'S ALMOST HARVEST TIME NOW.

 There we go! :D

There we go! :D

Being a candle is not easy: in order to give light one must first burn.
