The kids introduced me to a game called 2048. Darn them! I have an addictive personality. I think it’s why I never tried drugs. I didn’t trust myself to stop. The game is like being in Vegas – the clock is hidden so you don’t realize how long you’ve been sitting there playing it. I don’t even really understand how to win nor have I figured out the strategy. It’s a 4x4 grid, the blocks start at 2 and multiply as you make matches and the highest block that I have achieved is 512.
These potatoes are addictive too. Simple to make, rich and creamy to eat. Another Southern Living recipe that is fit to pass along.
- 2 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
- 3 c whipping cream
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 ½ t salt
- ¼ t freshly ground pepper
- ½ c grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400. Layer sliced potatoes in a 13 x 9 in or 3 quart baking dish
Stir together cream, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Pour cream mixture over potatoes.
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes, stirring gently every 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.
