Potato Gratin with Caramelized Shallots; interior decorating — 11 Comments

  1. I’m like you when it comes to decorating–minimalism is the best, because there is less cleaning. However, I’m notorious and fussy about ingredients in my recipes. With this recipe, this is the best time of year to compare varieties of potatoes.

  2. Me too, I’m a deco minimalist. I just want things done and then basta. The less the better. I do have one indoor plant that I can’t seem to kill and some curtains that I hate so I guess I’ll do something about them, but my black leather couch was a great idea, it has survived kids and dog 🙂

  3. “I’m much more particular when it comes to our food.” — I am liking this position more and more, every year I get older.

  4. No curtains pretty much describes my decorating style, too. Why close out the best thing about my house, the stunning view. We even took out the fireplace to open up more of the view (it was in the middle of the expanse). I still get lots of dust but who cares?

  5. Sanura, I loath cleaning – and we get so much dust heating with wood!
    Meredith, leather is the only way to go – wash it when it gets dirty and done! We have one room with fussy stuff in it – I keep the door closed and never use it – no sense to that!
    Tanna, time to enjoy wine and food always takes precedence over housework!
    Potatoes, ours too… and your welcome!
    Dan, food gives pleasure; dusting does not!
    Christine, I do too, but our variety here is somewhat limited. We make do.
    Zoomie, as long as no one disturbs the dust…. Hate it when people who shall remain nameless, write in it!
    manningroad, lots and lots of dust and fur….. Wood fires are terrible!
    Emily, gooey cheese and potatoes are made for each other.
