Roasted Potatoes

After hand mixing the potatoes with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper I proceed to the kitchen sink. Ever so gently then exfoliating my hands with the reminisce of the olive oil and sea salt. It’s all about multi tasking when you are a mom of two. While having my sons forty eight hour EEG this weekend it’s been all about multi tasking. Keeping a toddler safe while connected to so many wires is defiantly not an easy task. Then add an adorable little baby running around in the walker (Yes! Running and it is adorable) making a recipe for disaster. Despite the high probability for accidents and ciaos everything has gone particularly well the first twenty four hours.

The worst part so far has been hooking Maxwell up to the EEG. It took place in a basement and the actual machine has the most terrifying noise to adhere the leads. He may have panicked, but he didn’t pass out which for that I am very proud. While there another family was also having their child connected for testing. Not knowing this family we started to exchange words and it was surprisingly a very comforting and heart warming conversation. Sometimes you do not want people to understand your struggles, but you also do not want to feel alone. This family was also taking their child home for a forty eight hour EEG and through conversation my heart felt so much for their story. It brought up a lot of emotion I felt while caring for Patryk, reminding me how no one could relate to what we were going through. Here in this moment someone with a different story but similar issues I could relate to, it was comforting.

Roasted Potatoes

Which brings me back to this recipe, its comforting to me. Potatoes are simply a comfort food, other comforting foods include cookies, mac and cheese, meat loaf with gravy-the list can go on and on. These roasted potatoes are loaded with garlic, cheese and crispy deliciousness, and finished off with the perfect amount of fresh green parsley. Hope you enjoy this easy and comforting recipe no matter what struggles you and your family may be facing. Today I choose to be thankful for getting through the first day of an EEG with a three year old, while still seeing my little boy laugh and smile through it all. I’ll pray that tomorrow continues to go well and that the results can help us find answers. My only dream is for Maxwell to be seizure free one day.
