Ok, so my attempt to blog at least once a day for November failed. It was an interesting weekend and I had things to blog about, but just never found the time. Oh well. Back to the grind!
Tonight, JJ is coming over for dinner and I'm excited to cook for him. Ryan is in charge of the protein for the meal, but I'm going to make steamed spinach with lemon and roasted redskin potatoes with green pepper and onion and fresh herbs. The potato dish is so good and so easy, my mom made up the recipe. You start with small redskin potatoes, watshed and the eyes scraped out. Chop the potatoes in to medium-small pieces (I usually quarter the potato) but make sure they are all about the same size so they all cook evenly. Chop the onion and green pepper evenly as well and you can use as much or as little of these ingredients as you want. In a large bowl, add the potatoes, onion and green pepper and add olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper. I also like to add fresh herbs like parsley, basil and anything else you want. I sprinkling of crushed red pepper is also good, but a little goes a long way.
