Potatoes! Potatoes!

So a brunette, a redhead, and a blonde are robbing a potato farm. The farmer hears a noise and comes out to investigate, so the girls jump into potato sacks. When the farmer pokes the first potato sack, the brunette meows-- so he thinks there is a cat inside. When the farmer pokes the second potato sack, the redhead barks-- so he thinks there is a dog inside. And when the farmer pokes the third potato sack, the blonde hollers, "Potatoes! Potatoes!"

Butter-Roasted Potatoes
(not sure where I originally found this recipe) 

2 medium roasting potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
spices (paprika, thyme, garlic, etc)

1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Meanwhile, scrub and halve potatoes.
2) Once oven is hot, place butter in pan (one just large enough to hold potato halves). Put in hot oven for a few minutes to melt butter.
3) Whisk salt, pepper, and spices to taste into melted butter. Place potato halves cut side down in pan. Roast for 25-30 minutes. Potatoes will have a delicious crisp crust due to the butter and high heat, but inside, will be soft and tender.
