We’re officially in Money Saving Mode now that we’re building a new house and planning a move in about six months. Eating out is where most of our money goes, by far… and even though cooking at home and bringing lunch to work is the obvious solution, it’s a hard habit to break! Since this blog is the way I keep track of what’s going on life-wise and tends to reflect whatever is on my mind, don’t be surprised if a few more super-easy-super-frugal recipes start popping up. You’ve been warned!
My little rosemary plant has been holding its own, so I decided it was high time for a small harvest. But what to make for dinner? Pinterest to the rescue!
Here’s my own version:
Roasted Red Potatoes
- 1 bag of baby red potatoes
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary (I didn’t use a chef knife, but otherwise found this video helpful)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, then cut the potatoes into quarters. In a big bowl, coat the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary, then mix together.
Put foil on a rimmed baking sheet and add the potatoes in one layer. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Donezo!
The first night we ate these on the side with tilapia and broccoli, then as leftovers for two more meals – for lunch the next day, then again for dinner a couple nights later as mashed potatoes with vegetables and cheese toast for a super-lazy vegetarian meal.
It was fun to cook something with my little rosemary plant helping out, hopefully I can keep it alive for more recipes!
