This year I have decided to start an herb garden! I have seen and helped my parents and grandparents working in the garden growing up. I never thought I would get into it because I never cared for getting very close to the bugs that come with a fresh garden, so it surprised me when I got the bug to start my own little herb garden! Here is what I've gotten started so far...I know that it doesn't look like much but big things are happening in these little dirt pods. I am growing cilantro, basil, oregano, and green onions! Depending on how this works out I may get a little more adventurous and try some tomatoes and lettuce next year! I'll keep you posted on how these little guys do this year!
My herb garden isn't the only thing growing in North Dakota! As you can see things are changing here at Lil' Slice of Health and I couldn't be more excited! Not only have I revamped my blog, I also have some exciting new things in the works for you. So stay tuned for more information on what's cooking in the up coming months!!
I do have a recipe for you this week! This recipe is a little more old fashioned and is something I personally haven't made in quite some time. I made mashed potatoes last week to go with our meatloaf and, as always, I had way too many mashed potatoes left over once the meatloaf was gone. Instead of making something else to go with my mashed potatoes, I decided to repurpose my mashed potatoes and made potato cakes! My mom made these a few times growing up and I was feeling a little nostalgic so why not! Here is my recipe for potato cakes. I hope you enjoy!
2 cups of left over mashed potatoes
1/4-1/3 cup of flour
Cheese if desired
1. Preheat griddle or skillet. *If using skillet be sure to spray with cooking spray. Mix all of the ingredients together and spoon onto griddle or skillet, making sure to flatten into a circle about a half an inch thick.
2. Cook about 5-7 minutes and flip onto other side. Cook another 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy!
