The Adventures of Shirley’s Spuds it’s hashbrowns today

I do love a good potato. Baked, fried, hash browned, pancaked, twice baked, curried, boiled, YUM! They all have a place on my plate because they can be crispy and soft, mild flavored or boldly spiced. Would you like to join me as I share my spud secrets? See my first recipe, potato pancakes, here.

It’s hashbrowns for breakfast today or any meal will do.

Recipe:

Peel and grate 1 russet potato per person.

Heat about 2 tablespoons per potato of frying liquid in an appropriately sized pan. One potato fits in an 8 inch skillet or 2 potatoes fit in a 10 inch skillet. I used Ghee today and olive oil works too.

The oil needs to sizzle before adding the grated potato. Add all the potatoes at once. Flatten to a patty shape to fill the pan to about 1/2 inch depth.

Fry 3-4 minutes per side. Flip when the edges are brown. Do a peek under to ensure the entire patty is brown before flipping. We want a nice, crispy patty!

I top with Penzey’s Seasoned Salt. And that’s the recipe! There are no leftovers because I make just what we can eat in one meal. Because, you know, the crispy patty turns to mushy patty in the frig.

Hope you enjoyed today’s installment of  The Adventures of Shirley’s Spuds!

Today is last day of Sale-a-bration promotion

Good Morning! As I enter my third week of Staying Safer at Home, I can tell you the dust bunnies are definitely not safer at home. Two rooms are spring cleaned and awaiting a sunny day to clean the carpets. I am slowly working on organizing my stamp room: straightening piles, creating greeting cards to send and peering into shelf corners with an eye to share supplies with those that may need a little pick me up.

As you have worked on your to do list as I have, you may not have noticed that the end of Sale-a-bration quickly approached. And today it is here. The last day to take advantage of earning free products through either placing an order at my online store or signing up to be a demonstrator on my team. Doing either action will infuse some creativity to your life. Products are shipped directly to your front door from Utah where most of our products are made. When you place an order or sign up to be demonstrator, please make sure my name is in the upper corner of the screen so I get credit for your order or so that you are signing up with me. Please select me as your demonstrator if you don’t see my name.

Now here are some pretty photo of projects made using some of the Sale-a-bration free products with purchase.

The embossed vellum paper is particularly nice and comes in an assorted, three color pack.

Paper Crafting Porch Pick Up Kits

3 20porchpickup-001

I am slowing going through my stamp room and organizing. This means I am placing similar items next to each other and not just tucked in where there might be an empty space:) It’s become evident that I am paper hoarder crafter. However, I have been a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator for over 16 years so am allowed to keep a few items on hand (wink wink on “a few”). I use my supplies through in person events which have been delayed.

As I was organizing, I have been pondering the dilemma of what to do with my paper stash now that my in person events have been delayed. I have come up with Porch Pick Up Kits! Read below for details.

Select either the greeting card making kit or the mixed media kit. Both will share similar supplies as shown in the photo: ink pads, ribbons, self adhesive embellishments and cardstock sniblets, full sheets of cardstock, full sheets of designer series paper and lots of assorted image wood mounted stamps.

The greeting card kit will include scored and cut cardstock ready to make 20 greeting cards with envelopes. The mixed media kit substitutes the scored cardstock and envelopes with 12×12 cardstock and designer series papers.

Either kit option is $25 per kit. Add $5 for inclusion of a tombo liquid glue. I am happy to add-on more consumable supplies to your kit in $10 increments so you are set for a bit:) Just let me know what you want more of: solid colored papers, patterned papers, embellishments or ribbons. I also have glue dots in stock for $6 per box.

Porch Pick Up and payment left under the pallet tree on my front step at my house in Sun Prairie. Click the Contact button to message me to set up a pick up time. Let me know which kit you are ordering and if there are any add-ons. Thank you for allowing me to share my stash with you and helping to keep your family entertained while we stay safer at home.

If you feel like ordering, there are more products to Sale-A-Brate.

Home office business decisions are made months and even years in advance. That is what happened with the timing of the third release of Sale-A-Bration products that are available now. I know this is a difficult time with the ever changing landscape of the covid-19 situation. In case your coping mechanism is to hibernate in your stamp space, this is a gentle reminder that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st. The third release of Sale-A-Bration products added a few more annual catalog items as free options with purchase.

The additional options are shown below. I think the Butterfly Duet punch is a super option for springtime designs. My next pick is the Dinoroar designer series paper package because of the vibrant colors. Gotta love the self adhesive red rhinestone basic jewels for ease of use.
