Oven Roasted Potatoes

Oven Roasted Potatoes | The Hungry Housewife

I’m all about lazy easy this summer.

I have been super unmotivated and have been super slack-y.

Maybe because it has rained EVERY day since my kids have been out of school.

Maybe it’s because I have to bring my kids with me everyday to work..can you say “Super Productive”??


Orrrrr, maybe because my kids seem to have forgotten their bedtimes this summer and I have had ZERO time to myself, like zero time.

Don’t get me wrong, I am lucky. I love hanging out with my kids and I am lucky we own our own business and I can take them to work with me instead of putting them in a day care, but OMG, I need a two second break.

ehh, it happens every summer. I have a mini mental break down. I’ll get over.

So until then, here are some super simple oven roasted potatoes.

I’ll show you how easy…

Get yourself a 28oz bag of baby red potatoes.

    I so feel you. Jon David thinks that Summer means he needs to stay up allll the night. And of course, I’m with him and bebe alllll day. Sometimes I just say,”please go to bed, I need some quiet time”.

    Mother of the year, over here.
