Another Elvis Sighting? In Iowa of all places!

Willy Sears and his Great Dane, Elvis going for a ride!

An Iowa motorcyclist is drawing a lot of attention on Des Moines roads for his unusual sidecar passenger — a 150-pound Great Dane named Elvis.

Des Moines resident Willy Sears said Elvis keeps watch over him each day when he spends several hours working to repair and restore his classic motorcycles, and the canine will inevitably grow impatient.

“He badgers me to go for rides every day,” Sears said.

He said the dog’s passion for motorcycle riding started when Willy was working on restoring a sidecar. “Last year, it just kind of happened. I had bought a side car that needed to be refurbished and when I had it taken apart, off the bike he was very interested in it,” Sears said. “I had him sit in it and I’d give him a treat he enjoyed it.”

Move over Mashed Potatoes (try this for a change!)

thumbnail_crispy-potato-roast

Amazing Crispy Potato Roast Thanksgiving Side Dish!

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
10 – 12 russet potatoes, peeled
Kosher salt
1 small onion or 4 shallots, peeled and sliced very thin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
4 – 6 fresh thyme sprigs
About 3 ounces pancetta or bacon, cubed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the oil and melted butter in a small dish. Set aside.

Brush a round baking dish (around 9 – 10 inches) with a little of the butter and oil mixture.

Slice the potatoes as thin as possible crosswise. Arrange potatoes vertically in the baking dish. Wedge onion or shallot slices throughout potato slices – in about 3 or 4 sections of each potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper flakes (use some black pepper if not using red pepper flakes). Brush with the remaining butter and oil mixture.

Bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes uncovered. If you find at anytime throughout baking that the potatoes are too dry, a little of the olive oil/butter from the bottom of the baking dish can be brushed on the slices. Also, a butter knife can be used to separate some of the slices if there are some sticking together too much.

While potatoes are baking, brown the pancetta or bacon in a small pan. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Set aside.

Remove potatoes from oven.

Add pancetta or bacon by scattering around throughout the potatoes. Lay the thyme sprigs on top of potatoes.

Bake for an additional 35 minutes. Remove from oven.

Sprinkle on a little more kosher salt. Serve immediately. Sour cream is a great accompaniment to the potatoes.
