Potato Bake + Movie night

Sometimes, you can really take things for granted. The quiet stillness you get when you have the house all to yourself. Being able to wander around in the middle of the night, to nip and grab a drink at any hour (without fear of waking anyone up!). Snuggling up on the sofa with your loved one, watching a film together. Under a duvet perhaps if it’s cold, with delicious food and maybe popcorn. These are things that happen all of the time, yet you never really stop to think about them.

In less than two weeks, we’ll be moving house. Going from being just me and my partner (and his daughter the weeks that we have her) to a rather fuller house, with his brother, brother’s wife and their two small children. Now don’t get me wrong, this is going to be a wonderful time. And I’m sure we’re all going to enjoy living together. But it’s also something we’re going to all have to get used to πŸ™‚

I’m also certain that me and my partner will still be able to have our movie nights. But since the next two weeks (at least!) will be filled with packing boxes, cleaning the house and then, the stress of actually moving! Not to mention the unpacking of boxes once we get there… Well, let’s just say I doubt we’ll be able to have the luxury of just relaxing on the sofa for quite some time.

To make the most of our last semi-relaxed weekend together (we still spent a lot of time packing!) we decided to spend Saturday evening making pizza together, and then snuggle down and watch films at night. It was perfect. Lots giggles, good food, good (well some good!) films, and fantastic company <3.

Since I was a kid, movie nights would always include pizza, and some sort of potato side. Me and my partner normally have potato wedges, but we didn’t quite fancy them this time. Instead, I decided to try experimenting with something a little bit different.

Layers of potato, sweet potatoes and onions, scattered with garlic and rosemary, and a drizzle of olive oil…

These were good.

The pizza we served this with was phenomenal… But more on that another time πŸ˜‰

Go try this potato bake. It’s ridiculously easy, and very tasty. Simply slice up your ingredients, layer them in your baking tin, and cook until tender and crispy.

Because really, how can you go wrong with potatoes, garlic and rosemary?

It even works well with carrots too!

Enjoy <3

      Good luck on packing and your move! That can be daunting and stressful. I hope that you’ll be really happy in your new living situation.

      Your potato bake sounds so delicious, especially with the garlic and rosemary! I like the mixture of regular potatoes and sweet potatoes.
