First, I zap them in the microwave ...
6 minutes in the microwave. Then I open the bag and place each potato on a greased baking sheet.
Then I take a heavy glass and make each potato go splat!
Then either brush with olive oil, or put a small pat of butter on top each potato, sprinkle on some spices (I used Italian Seasoning). Add a little cheese, if you like, and broil until crispy around the edges. (I modified Caramel Potatoes' recipe, Crispy Smashed Potatoes, to suit our family's taste.)
Have you ever felt like you have been zapped and knocked flat splat by life? I think we've all been there. What's worse is when we have no one to blame but ourselves for the mess we are in.
You can repent and turn from all the dumb stuff you found yourself doing. You can find hope in Jesus Christ. He came to redeem us - buy us back from the punishment we so richly deserved.
He gives us a new heart. Instead of being zapped by foolishness we can now be zealous (or eager) to do the right thing..
I believe family dinner is important and I also believe food for the soul is just as important. I've shared with you a recipe to feed your family each day as well as a devotional thought to feed your spirit.
