Potatoes Gratin

I made this for lunch today. I'm sure this isn't the "real" way to make potatoes gratin, but whatever. It's super easy and it tastes great.




-some potatoes I use the small yellow ones with thin skin - not really sure what they're called.

-heavy cream I use about 1/2-1 cup, depending on how many potatoes I use

-grated Parmesan cheese use however much you want

-salt and pepper

-herbs whatever you have is fine

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Clean and slice the potatoes very thinly (leave the skin... or take it off if you want). Put a layer of potatoes in the baking dish, season with salt and pepper, drizzle some cream and then sprinkle some herbs. Repeat this until the dish is filled. On the very top, sprinkle Parmesan cheese so that it will brown. Bake for about 35-45 minutes or however long it takes to cook and make sure not to burn it. Let it cool for about 10-15 minutes or don't wait and burn your mouth and regret not being patient. Enjoy!

Sorry these are really shitty cooking directions.

That looks delicious and like a picture out of one of Martha's cookbooks, perfectly crisped and everything.

Also I found this link that shows a pattern of how to make a dachshund plush toy, but it's in Japanese. Maybe you can decipher it to make one when you're bored!
