Posts Tagged ‘Yellow 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!!!!!

Freezing cold and windy, that’s my forecast for the day. I woke up with just about every inch of my body aching from my Pilates workout. I didn’t mind, infact, it took my mind off my back pain and made me feel like I’m putting a dent into this body of mine.!

Got out of bed fairly late, later than usually and so we got ready for the day and hung out in the living room. Mike had already made two different types of soups and I ate the Vegetable Rice Soup he made with all the left over Veggies and Rice in the refrigerator. I sprinkled in some Whole Wheat Bread and chowed down. It was very delicious… makes me very jealous that Mike’s able to make food at a drop of a hat like this.:(

Vegetable Rice Soup:

5 Celery

4 Yellow Onions

3 Potatoes

3 Parsnips

2 Cans Diced Tomatoes

1/2 Bag Spinach

1Cup Rice

1Can Kidney Beans Canned (drained)

Vegetable Rice Soup

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Directions:

Put water chopped up vegetables, spinach, beans, diced tomatoes, and rice all into pot and place in crock pot for 1 hour.

 Even thought it was 24 degrees and windy outside, Mike decided to take us ice-skating. I said, lets go! So we took a drive to Reston Town Center and parked near the skating rink set up in the open area of the mall. We went into the information area where they were selling tickets and skates, and sure enough, I took my boots off and told the girl size 9. I was sad Mike didn’t buy a ticket, but that’s to be expected. He’s not much of a sportsy guy. But that’s O.K. his son and I took to the ice until I got my ice skating legs… and by that time, we were icicles from the blasting wind and very chilly temperatures. So, we got off the rink and headed over to Panera Bread for a nice Hot Chocolate.
