The First Meal
I'm not sure why it is, but the harder you work at making a delicious meal, the less likely you are to get to enjoy it together. As is the most likely the case with busy families anyways.
Now that I am back to work, I've realized that I have to actually start planning meals. I guess you could say, working is making me more efficient at time management. For instance, instead of having all day to do the never ending chores, I only have half the time to get it all done. And amazingly, it gets done.
But back to the meal! I had this wonderful meal planned out, and of course, it took me a bit of time. Adam had to leave to a meeting the second it was ready. So much for me becoming more efficient at time management! It's only the first of many meals, though, so hopefully I get better at planning.
Then I started with the potatoes. I had bought a mixture of baby potatoes, just to add a little more colour to the meal. I boiled them until they were sort of soft, and then threw them into a mixture of rosemary and those fresh green onions. I smashed them, not mashed, smashed, and then fried them in olive oil with some garlic until they were crispy. Of course, I added sea salt and pepper. I don't usually use salt on my food, except potatoes and corn on the cob. How can you not? It's like peanut butter without jam. Or whatever you think goes best.
