I was feeling a bit in the mood for a meat and potatoes and vegetable type of meal. Just because, I suppose. There were some pork chops in the freezer (a rarity), so they got tagged to be ‘it’. They were marinated overnight in olive oil and a dried herbed salad dressing mix. We cooked those up on the Foreman grill and called it dinner. They were pretty good, even though I’m not a huge pork chop fan. Fairly moist too… I think the olive oil and the cooking method helped with that.
Oh, were those little red potatoes ever delicious though! I had forgotten how wonderful they are. Red potatoes, olive oil, sea salt (definitely a key ingredient!) and some garlic powder. Big yum! I was going to use dried rosemary, but for some odd reason there was none in the cupboard. Gotta fix that soon… The potatoes were roasted in the toaster/convection oven, and they smelled heavenly as they were cooking. So, all in all, a quite simple yet very satisfying meal. I’m definitely going to get more of those red potatoes on my next trip to the grocery store… Just way too good!
