Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes + Secrets and Discovery of Raw Milk

I have really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really exciting news, but I can't tell. Not yet. I'm absolutely, downright horrible at keeping secrets, the suspense kills me! Never give me your secrets unless you want the secret no longer to be a secret because my excitement over secrets always wins, I'll spill the beans to the very next person I converse with no matter who they are I cannot contain joy! So why am I showing you a picture of a cow? Because this secret I can tell - whew! I thought I would explode at the thought of keeping all my secrets. Here it is: I've converted my family to raw milk and IT. IS. SO. FANTASTIC! Oh, yeah - and I roasted some potatoes that were kinda really fabulously delicious and I want you to have the recipe because it was really ridiculously easy. 

These potatoes are super simple, fast, tasty and easy enough for weeknights. Season up some potatoes  that have been pricked with a fork with olive oil, dried rosemary, grey sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover the dish tightly with tinfoil and bake for about 45 minutes. Remove the tinfoil and allow the potatoes to get a little more crispy and you're done! Easy weeknight side which could be prepped in the morning and popped into the oven when you get home at night. 
Still wondering about the raw milk? Well the kids (and the husband) haven't yet called foul play (super, double, triple, quadruple, hexaruple YAY) which is surprising since the 2.3 times I've tried to pull a coconut milk in the cereal ploy on them I was caught red handed at the first slurp. The weight and texture of the milk is heavier, more like a 2% or whole milk. And the flavor is, like, well - milk! Really, really fresh milk full of enzymes and bacteria that are improving our gut health all while supporting a local farmer's family. Plus, raw milk makes the most drop-dead gorgeous homemade pudding. If you're storing raw milk you'll want an air-tight container, like this pitcher from Amazon.
