Foodie Extravaganza Potato

foodieextravaganza-300

Foodie Extravaganza is where bloggers come together and celebrate food holidays. Did you know there is at least one food assigned to each day of the year to celebrate that food? Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas is our host this month and since she is from Idaho, she picked potatoes. All of the recipes will feature potatoes in one form or another.

 

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of the month. If you are a blogger and you’re interested in joining in the fun, visit us at our Facebook Foodie Extravaganza page. You can also visit our past party submissions on our Pinterest Foodie Extravaganza board .

I was so suprised to see all the creative recipes we bloggers have created. Not one of them is a duplicate.  How fun!

My Copy Cat Chicken with Gnocchi is soo good. Since fall is coming Soup is a wonderful way to warm the chill away.  Check it out here. Foodie Extravaganza Potato is a great way to expand your recipe file with a few more potato recipes.  There is more to just  mashing, frying and baking a potato.

      It is one of those things that make the soup so yummy. Like home made noodles it just adds a bit more.
