I just got home from Presanctified Liturgy and the Lenten potluck that follows, and I thought I would post a little something now instead of saving it all for tomorrow. Tonight I brought potato cakes, gluten free peanut butter cookies, and some leftover spice cake from my grandma (we froze it after my mom’s birthday party). Here’s what I did for the potato cakes:
I’m not sure how I long I baked them, at least 30 minutes, maybe closer to 45. I just keep an eye on them and give them a little squeeze (with an oven mitt on) to see if they’re done. Once they’re cool enough to handle, the skin practically peels right off in your hands – it’s okay if you don’t get all of it. At least I think so.
I covered mine in foil and threw them in the huge convection oven at church during the Liturgy for not quite an hour at 275. Then I rushed over to the kitchen, took the foil off and turned the heat up to 350 and baked for another 5 to 10 minutes.
Now, would you like to see the rest of the potluck food? Good. Because I actually remembered to take pictures this time.
Yep, you can see the label on it : ) It’s one of the staple items at the potlucks. And this is Nadira’s soup, it was REALLY good! I don’t know how she made it so creamy, and there were big chunks of potato and carrot.
I tried, though. The chili with avocado was excellent, and I’m always a fan of the classic Ants on a Log. I went back and got another soup with beans, chickpeas and mushrooms that was really good. I wanted to try all the rest, but I was full and did not want to commit one of the Seven Deadly Sins while at a Lenten potluck. Looking forward to next week, though!
