These potatoes are creamy and dreamy!! You know what else is dreamy? Seeing my 8 year old get to meet her favorite Disney Channel stars! We had the chance to go to the Tween Stars Live event in our town on Sunday. Can I just say that I am so glad I bought those tickets for her? It was a surprise, and she was completely ecstatic to meet these kids! I posted a few pics on Instagram. Her favorites were meeting the kids from the show Jessie. I thought it was pretty fun too. After all, I’ve had these shows on in my house all the time for the past 4 years. I’ve kind of watched them grow up too.
And I really know what it feels like to be star struck. Kind of like the time I met Paula Deen and Ree Drummond.
Those were both very fun moments that I will never forget! I’m so glad I got to share in that experience with my little girl!
So onto these creamy dreamy potatoes…they are a perfect side dish to go along with all your holiday foods. The first time I made these, I made Pioneer Woman’s rosemary version. That was on Christmas Eve last year, and they were so good! We served them along side a fantastic beef tenderloin. It was definitely a great dinner! The other day I made this Cheesy Caramelized Onion version to go with our steaks. And I’ll probably be taking them with me to Thanksgiving dinner as well 🙂
