It’s Friday time and that means two great events today.
Be sure to visit each of these great sites and link up.
Of course leave me some blogging love first, then link up!
Ahr Valley Wine Pictures: Some of you were curious about the pictures I posted so here are some of the Valley at harvest time. It. Is. Gorgeous. If you’re ever in the area let me know. We’ll go touring together.
(I’ve got more pictures somewhere but these will do for now. I did add effects to the two up close grape shots using Picnik.)

Friday’s Feast (F2) with Cajoh! I’ve been scouring for good recipes for this week. Last week I made my sausage jambalaya recipe I posted. But in a fit of exuberance to clean off my photo card, I deleted the finished product picture. So I just have a during the cooking picture. This is pre rice and broth being added.
This week I’m posting something I haven’t made in awhile:
Lemony Oven Fries (recipe from BH&G Annual Recipes 2002)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 large lemon, thinly sliced
1 20 oz package frozen french-fried shoestring potatoes (we like Ore Ida Golden Longs)
In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Carefully add lemon slices. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until lemon begins to brown. Use tongs to turn lemon slices. Remove lemon slices with slotted spoon, drain on paper towels. Reserve lemon-flavored oil.
In a large bowl toss frozen potatoes with the reserved oil until well coated. Place in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet. Bake according to packages directions or until fries are browned and crisp, stirring occasionally.
To serve you can toss with lemon wedges (or leave out). Sprinkle generously with sea salt. Squeeze additional lemon wedges over fries. Serve immediately.
This is great with brats, hamburgers and pretty much anything! Enjoy!
Be sure to visit CaJoh and see what great recipes are waiting to be discovered this week!
