Take-out Tuesday, Colby’s Everything Potatoes

We had a fun filled weekend on the coast,

sunny weather in the high 70’s

and special friends at the beach house

It was a great weekend of boat and people watching

HHjr kept us full of wonderful food

One of our guests offered to make his specialty potatoes

Don’t you love guests that pitch in to help?

Uh oh, he is going to do the bowl toss!

He pulled it off, I was very impressed!

Fresh rosemary

Italian seasoning and minced garlic

Diced onion {optional}

Thank you Colby!

I have known Colby since he was 3 years old when he and HHjr became best friends at Mother’s day out! He has grown into an incredible man, and I think of him not only as a very good friend, but as an adopted son.  He has always been there for our family, good times and bad…

  3. Jenna, only in Alabama would you see a VW van boat ๐Ÿ˜‚ Colbyโ€™s potatoes look amazing and the recipe is easy. Potatoes are a must for gatherings at our house. Happy Tuesday!

  4. Jodi says:

    LOVE those kind of guests and LOVE roasted potatoes with rosemary too!!!!

  5. Jenna, what a treat to be at your coastal home for the week end and to top it off, someone to cook for you too. You can’t beat that, and when the recipe looks so good (and tastes so good) you are a winner winner chicken dinner. Have a great and wonderful week.

    It sounds like you all are lucky to have Colby in your life. It is nice when guests like to pitch in and those potatoes look great. BTW, I loved the VW pontoon boat…not too practical but fun nonetheless. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Shelia says:

    Yum–those potatoes look good. And that Colby, he’s a great guy, loyal friend, endorsed by you AND he cooks?!!! Oh, if only I weren’t a little old lady. Seriously–you are lucky to have another son like Colby.

  10. Tell Colby I am saving his recipe. They look wonderful. I’m envisioning these up at the lake this summer but I don’t think I’ll wait that long to give it a try!

  11. Benita says:

    Jenna, those potatoes look amazing! Love this recipe and will definitely be giving it a try! Also love that VW bus…you just never know what you will find on the water!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs!

  12. thefrenchhutch says:

    Yes, it’s great when our guests enjoy pitching in to help the host. This is a great recipe. I make basically the same and everyone always enjoys it. If we are grilling we sometimes throw it on the grill, that’s tasty as well. I think I’ll pick up potatoes on my next list to the supermarket. This makes me hungry for this! Enjoyed your pics……..

  13. Nancy says:

    Now that VW van on the boat..
    Hilarious! Colby made some delicious potatoes!

    But whatโ€™s best is he is a good friend to you and the family!

  14. Jill Kuhn says:

    These potatoes look melt-in-your mouth delish! ๐Ÿ˜ So nice to have him help out in the kitchen too! I roasted red potatoes in the oven on Sunday. I sliced mine super thin, mixed in olive oil and added grated Parmesan cheese. The cheese browns and is crunchy! I only cooked them for about 10 minutes. Forgot to add the garlic…๐Ÿ˜‰ I like your recipe with fresh Rosemary too. ๐ŸŒฟ

  15. Cyndi Raines says:
