Potato planks!

I got this delicious recipe this summer from a magazine and we loved them!
Preheat oven to 425*
Slice 4-5 russet potatoes length wise in 1/4" slices (like planks)
Toss potato slices in bowl with 2 Tb. Oil (I used Veg.)
Sprinkle with 1 ts. seasoning salt and pepper to taste
Spread evenly on baking sheet, use two if needed so they are flat on the pan. Bake 35-45 mins. until golden and soft to a fork. I thought these would also be so good with dried Rosemary sprinkled over as well in place of the seasoning salt and use reg. salt instead! These are so good with burgers and I imagine even better with a steak! ha Enjoy!

Lemon pudding cake!

Lemon Pudding Cake
Bake a boxed lemon cake in a bundt pan according to directions
Chill snack packs of lemon pudding (you want one snack pack per two servings, so a 4 pack would serve 8)
Sliced and sugared strawberries
Whipped topping
Slice cooled cake and place thin slice on a plate, spoon half a snack pack of pudding over cake, sprinkle with berries, place a second slice of cake on top of that and spool whipped topping over the top!
You could easily make these plates up 1/2 hr. ahead if you wanted to! This is a quick and refreshing dessert! The cake is great to stand alone for a summer snack too....Try grilling the slices of cake on the grill or on top of the stove until toasty brown! That is delicious too! ENJOY!
