Posts Tagged ‘Potatoes & Onions’

For dinner, I made Mike’s son Roasted Potatoes and Onions with some Paprika, Parsley and other Seasonings. I have to say, it was really good for no other dinner preparations. I thought I’d pour some Olive Oil into a Sauté Pan and threw in the cut up Potatoes with their skin still on. I did the Potatoes first, because it takes them longer to cook. Then I added the Onions. But the Potatoes were falling apart and kind of burning to the bottom of the pan. So I turned down the heat and added some more Olive Oil and then I added the Seasonings and let the Onions cook. 

Potatoes & Onions:

Ingredients:

6 Medium Potatoes

1 Medium Yellow Onion

3Tbls. Olive Oil

1/4 Cup Parsley

1/4 Cup Paprika

1 Tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Sea Salt

Directions:

Wash and cut Potatoes into 1/4-inch cubes then slice Onions into thin slices. Heat Olive Oil in Sauté Pan and add Potatoes, sliced Onions, then seasonings. Let ingredients soften and meld together. 

While I was making the Potatoes and Onions, I decided to have the left over Fresh Vegetable Salad I made the night before. I also had some Whole Grain Rigatoni from the day before. BUT much to my surprise, the Fresh Vegetable Salad didn’t keep very well. The Vinegar in it became too overpowering, making it too sour and tart to eat. So I had some of the Potatoes & Onions.

For dessert, I drank some Carrot Juice with a couple more pieces of Danish! I can’t believe it… just because this food is in the house I feel I need to eat it. This is not right!!!!!

Christmas Day… with no one in the house but Mike and I, and all the presents already opened(the one he bought me!), we decided to brave the freezing temps(totally my suggestion).

It really didn’t feel like Christmas to me, so we left the house and went to go find someplace that was open serving food. We found a local place called Silver Dollar Cafe. It looks like a silver 50’s mobile home… and the food is about that same timeframe. I had a Vegetable Chili Soup and a Turkey Sandwich with Cheese. I forgot to take the Cheese off. I also drank some HOT TEA… because it was sooo cold out.

Then we made our way over to the movie theatre and bought our tickets for “It’s Complicated”. Such a great movie. It seems that’s all Mike’s willing to do when we are hear…. everything else is such a battle to do:(

Then on our way home, we thought we’d see if Safeway Grocery Store was still open for some food. Well it wasn’t:( so we went home.

Where I had the left over Garden Green Salad and Potatoes & Onions for dinner. Then for dessert, I remembered we had Berries in the frig, so I made a Berry Parfait with Flaxseed and Whipped Topping.

The whipped topping followed by a piece of Hershey’s Chocolate Bar with Nuts & Peanut Butter were my absolute downfalls. And my stomach reminded me later of what I’d done!
