FroBunni | Garlic Roasted Potatoes

I love roasted potatoes, and on an easy Sunday like this, roasted potatoes are the perfect breakfast. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of taking a day trip to Annapolis, MD and discovered the store The Spice and Tea Exchange. Being a die-hard foodie, if I have a vice it's anything culinary, so I had to buy some of their spice blends. I was going to buy 6 one-ounce bags, but signed up for their mailing list and was gifted an extra bag plus 10% off my entire order!

Fast forward to this morning, and I knew the Vik's Garlic Fix! Seasoning would be perfect with my red potatoes. I washed and cut the potatoes into slices, placed them on a roasting pan, added some olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, and about 4 tables spoons of the garlic seasoning. I roasted the potatoes for 20 minutes, took them out of the oven, and sprinkled the potatoes with cheddar cheese. I added a banana and blueberries, and it was the perfect breakfast for an easy Sunday morning.

I guess this blog marks my life as an adult fully in control of her life. Living alone, I must pay for my own rent, buy my own clothes, and cook my own food. While this may scare some people, I find it completely freeing - I am no longer influenced by friends' opinions, my parents cannot leverage my decisions with their money, and I have the ability to travel anywhere and at any time.

So here I am to finally stretch my wings and be free.
