Hey Ice Warriors!

Welcome to your Summary Sunday article! We are going to summarize important announcements and events from this week that happened throughout the Ice Warriors! As well, we want to share an awesome recipe for you that you can cook up on this lovely Sunday! Let’s go to the IW Kitchen with Rein to see what’s cooking up!

Let’s look at some of the amazing Ice warriors announcements and events we had this week!

This week was a super fun week with tons of events and more. We started off the week with an Easter Egg Hunt around our Discord and the IW Website, where troops enjoyed their day off. Many of our troops got promoted during our promo party and even our lovely Trusted Staff Subster, got promoted to 2IC!!!

On Monday, we had a Celebration Party for our March Madness Victory l, this event also had a very special promotion for DrQueen, in which she obtained Leader In Training. Congrats again, DrQueen!

Later in the week, there was an AUSIA U LEAD where all our AUSIA troops got to lead us. During this event, both Chevy and Five got promoted! At the end of the week, we had a Practice Battle with Water Vikings, an AUSIA Training Event, lastly a Practice Battle with Templars!

We also want to congratulate Steph, Levelz, Archie, and Grace for getting promoted this week as well!! Congrats to all!

Hey, it’s Rein in the Ice Warrior Kitchen. Can you smell something? This stunning potato side dish is an updated classic that’s guaranteed to steal the show at your next gathering! Pommes Anna, or Anna potatoes, is a classic French dish of thinly sliced potatoes that are layered with garlic-and-thyme butter and a sprinkle of Parmesan for an extra boost of flavor that can’t be beaten. I can’t wait to share this with DrQueen, lets get started.

Prep: 40 MIN
Total: 1 HR 20 MIN
Servings: 8

Ingredients:
2 lb Yukon Gold potatoes (6 medium), peeled, thinly sliced
5 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Ready? Set? Go!
1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place potatoes in a large bowl of cold water. Grease bottom and sides of 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Spray 12×12-inch piece of foil with cooking spray.
2. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons butter, the thyme, and garlic over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly until butter is melted but garlic has not browned. Remove from heat; set aside. In a custard cup, combine salt and pepper.
3. Drain potato slices; pat dry between paper towels. Starting in the center of the pan, arrange 1/4 of potato slices, slightly overlapping in a circular pattern, covering the bottom of the pan. Brush with 1/4 of butter mixture; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt mixture. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
4. Repeat layers two more times, ending with cheese. Top with one more layer of potatoes, brush with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining salt mixture. Press top of potatoes firmly with a metal spatula. Cook uncovered over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, gently shaking pan occasionally to prevent potatoes from sticking. Cover with foil sprayed side down.
5. Bake 15 minutes. Remove foil; bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown. Remove from oven. Run small spatula around edge of potatoes; gently shake the pan to loosen potatoes from the bottom of the pan. Carefully invert potatoes onto the serving plate To serve, cut into wedges.

Extra Tips:
If your potatoes seem to be stuck on the bottom of the pan when you shake it after baking, slide a large spatula under potatoes to loosen any stubborn potato slices.
If you prefer extra-crispy potatoes, invert the potatoes onto a cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 7 minutes before cutting.

End Result
