It is cold down here.

OK, it’s not COLD like I remember in Wisconsin, where your eyelashes would freeze and your nose would run and then that would freeze too, and school only got canceled once the windchill hit -50. True.

But I’ve gotten used to the weather in Texas the past 4.5 years, and I quite like it. So these windy days with morning temps down in the 20s has gotten me shivering again. I just don’t know how to handle it anymore.

Good thing there is always food to fall back on.

Potato Onion Casserole - Ingredients

One thing I remember having a lot as a kid was potatoes and onions, sauteed with a ton of butter on the stove. Everything would caramelize and it was just the perfect thing to have alongside meatloaf.

Oh, man. Just thinking about it makes me want some. (And now that I think about it, I want some Hot Buttered Crispix too. Anyone else do that?)

Of course, since I’m not eating meatloaf these days, a bigger helping of potatoes and a salad will have to do.

  1. Yeah, while I can’t feel too sorry for you sitting here on a 4 degree day in Chicago, I can say I imagine it’s pretty freakin uncomfortable if you’re used to milder TX weather, for sure. 😉

    Great simple recipe and lovely photos as usual!

  2. Oh I love potatoes and onions. This seems like it would also be great for an easy Sunday brunch – like a hash casserole, great with some eggs!

  3. Love all the spices and the coconut milk. Can’t wait to try this and since I do eat meatloaf (one of hubby’s fav) I may have to try the combo soon, maybe even tonight!
