What a perfectly dark and rainy day here in Los Angeles. Perfect for my moodiness, my anxiety to accomplish much in the New Year, and for the bowl of warmth sitting in front of me.
Ah, Southern Cali. We might not have the turning of the leaves or a first frost, but I swear, we do have Fall. The seasonal shift is ever so slight, but it is there. We get it right at the end of September.
You might be thinking, well this is a little late. Wasn’t Thanksgiving last week? Why didn’t I know about this recipe like 10 days ago? That way I could’ve skipped mashing all those damn potatoes.
Don’t fret. I’m cooking Christmas dinner for our entire family this year, and this scalloped potato dish will reign. I still have three weeks to plan the menu, but there is no way I’d leave this recipe out.
