Two Potato Moussaka

Well we survived the hurricane but now we are soaking wet. We have had a little over 7 inches since Monday. The wife and I did go out to eat at the Thai House for our anniversary. I must say we were a little disappointed as we both got something different. Mine was supposed to be mild and hers hot. They tasted the same and no way near hot or we have burnt out taste buds. The dish we cooked back in Jan. Thai Shrimp Soup was a lot tastier, especially for the price.

This is a dish we fixed that we thought was pretty good and makes a good bit so if you have more than 4 people to feed. Again thanks to Recipe Zaar.

That looks so yummy and there is something about a potato dish that is comforting in all of this rain. I am so glad that Gustav wasn't any worse, but all this rain needs to move out! My back yard is just floating. I am about to go fight all of the evacuee traffic to try to get my son to his doctor's appointment. NOT looking forward to it.
