Good 44º super foggy Thanksgiving Morning.
I checked the downtown cam in Grants Pass yesterday morning about 9am and it was raining there already......
So then I went outside and it was just starting to rain here...
2 minutes later it had stopped and Dude wanted out to lay in the grass!
During the morning it started up again... and stopped, by 1pm it started again, and after a day of on and off rain we ended up with 1/2".
We stayed at 47º all day.
Throw Back Thursday...........

Picture of the Day... LOL
Interesting about the dime...
The front (obverse) of the dime pictures a left-facing profile of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the only four-term President of the United States of America. The reverse boasts an olive branch, a torch, and an oak branch, from left to right respectively. According to the U.S. Mint, the torch is a symbol of liberty, the olive branch is a symbol of peace, and the oak branch is a symbol of strength and independence. The Roosevelt dime has been minted since 1946, when it replaced the Liberty Head dime. As of 2014, the dime coin cost 3.91 cents to produce.
Crispy Parmesan Roast Potatoes
You know when you are making a grilled cheese sandwich and some cheese oozes out of the sandwich, cooks in the pan and gets all nice and crispy and all sorts of good? You know, the best part of the grilled cheese sandwich! Well that’s what these roasted potatoes are all about! Parmesan cheese is sprinkled into a baking pan and topped with the potatoes before roasting and the cheese cooks on the bottom of the baking dish just like on the bottom of the grilled cheese sandwiches pan and it gets golden brown and after letting it cool/set for a few minutes after pulling it out, it gets crispy! These roast potatoes are melt in your mouth soft and tender on the inside and crispy n the outside and just pack with melted cheese flavor! Yum! Step aside French fries, there a new king of potatoes in town!
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 cup Parmesan, grated
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 1/2 pounds small (1 to 1.5 inch diameter) potatoes, cut in half
- salt and pepper to taste
- Brush the oil on the bottom of a baking dish and sprinkle on the parmesan.
- Toss the potatoes in the oil, salt and pepper and press into the parmesan with the cut side down.
- Roast in a preheated 400º oven until the Parmesan is nice and golden brown and the potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes, before removing from the oven to let cool for 5 minutes and breaking them apart.
Option: Season the potatoes with your favorite spices or blend instead of just salt and pepper, like Cajun seasoning or taco seasoning or Italian seasoning.
Also, you can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
