So with the Holidays quickly approaching this weekend I had a lot going on. We have two Birthdays starting off the holiday season. We have to start the decorating early. This year Miss J will be turning 9 on Thanksgiving day and we always try to make her birthday special. By doing something special on her special day that has nothing to do with Thanksgiving. So this year Miss J will be celebrating with all of her girlfriends a couple days later with a Gingerbread Decorating Party. So in order to get ready for that special party we either have to decorate early or for go the holiday decorations, when you add all the traveling in.. Plus in between all of that decorating I made this fabulous recipe called Potatoes Au Gratin. So yummy easy and tasty and a perfect addition to your holiday party.

12 Yukon Gold Potatoes peeled and Sliced ( About 3 pounds)
