You say "Po-ta-to", I say "Let's Eat!"

Check out these beautiful organic babies!!!

The 4th graders were so excited about our harvest!

Pam Laborde tries some of our freshly roasted potatoes~

Well, we had a surprise harvest today! We were getting a bit discouraged battling the potato beetles and decided to pull up a few decimated plants to see if there were any potatoes formed. Well, we filled up a full tray full of gorgeous, organic potatoes! Being that our "Family Appreciation Night" was this evening, we decided to serve them to our children, parents & faculty.

I have to give a HUGE thank you to John Ed Laborde for helping me clean and cook these potatoes at Panaroma Foods in Marksville. I would have never been able to cook this amount of potatoes in time in my tiny oven!

Everyone that sampled the potatoes loved them. For those that asked, they were simply washed, cubed, drizzled in olive oil, sprinkled with pepper, garlic seasoning, a bit of tony's, some fresh rosemary & oregano from the garden...then baked for about 35 min. Voila!
