Welcome to the September Mega Blogging Marathon that is going to be a cooking carnival! We are beginning our mega marathon with the concept of cooking one ingredient or a category for the whole of this month. Or one could do 5 ingredients or 5 Categories. You can read all about the different options that my Buddies will be doing!
Coming to my chosen theme, I have picked up Potato to be the star and will be cooking subthemes featuring Potato as the star ingredient. I know when I picked up Potato, it will become tough as I have so many potato recipes already.
Having a subtheme helped me be focused and tried my best to pick from different countries. While the list has a list of different countries, how much I will be able to follow the list will have to be seen.
I am known to cook a storm during the weekend. However, with a single ingredient, it is not possible nor can I keep cooking the only potato through the week. It has been quite tough. Still as Hubby dear loves Potato, he doesn't seem to mind.
During Mega BM we post for 26 days, having Sundays off. So that makes the week 1 have 3 days.
For the first 3 days, it's going to be Potato Fries or Wedges.
First on the platter is this Garlic Butter Parmesan Potato Wedges. I was inspired by these
pictures and wanted to bake as well. However, with time shortage, I decided to deep fry and then bake as well for the final effect.
Konda and Peddu enjoyed this so much as they are very fond of garlic butter. In fact, they couldn't wait to attack the platter while I was clicking the pictures. Konda also wanted to click on her own style and all the posts in this series will also showcase her style along with mine.
While I like to click top pictures and from the side, she is very fond of clicking closeup pictures. So enjoy both the styles!
