It’s hard to believe the world is suppose to end today. Do we have an official time? Okay okay… I know that’s what everyone and their mother are talking about. Silly Mayans. Honestly, that’s the one and only time you’ll hear me talk about it. Promise.

In other news… New Year’s is just over one week away. How on earth has another year gone by already? I know we say that every year. But the older you get and even the more kids you have, the faster time really does seem to fly by. I remember time absolutely dragging  when I was a kid and now, most days I have no idea where any of the time went. Wake up, do a bunch of stuff in the middle, go to bed and repeat.

So even though it’ll be another year before we know it, you still need munchies to ring in the new year… right? And these are ones you’ll absolutely want to make. They’re fun, easy and totally tasty. Bonus, you could easily serve these as an appetizer for just about any dinner or party because who doesn’t love potatoes? Oh wait yeah… my oldest. I’m still completely baffled by that.
