rosemary potatoes...

These are the potatoes and onions I received in my CSA box last week.
As you can see, they're not perfect. And you know, I like that about them. Perfect produce usually means some sort of genetic alterations are involved. So imperfect? Yes. Did it matter? Nope.
I finally had a chance to cook 'em all up last night. I left the skins on the potatoes, halved them and tossed them into a baking dish. Then I cut the onions into small chunks and added them to the potatoes. I drizzled it all with olive oil and added a few pats of butter.
Then I seasoned them with garlic powder, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, a smidgen of thyme and last but not least, rosemary. Ahhh...rosemary. It blends with potatoes like no other seasoning. It's one of my favorites.
I tossed the potatoes in the oven set at 375' and left them alone for about 45 minutes. They were delicious. I served them with grilled chicken and a tossed salad. And it was GOOD. I even made some extra chicken to use in tonight's dinner...creamy pasta with grilled chicken and broccoli. I'm hungry already! I may have to cook a little early!

Hi Michelle,
I have a bag of red potatoes on my counter & red onion to spare, & rosemary in my yard... I can taste it now. Beautiful pict. I'm envious of their imperfections :)
btw, come over and see my 'chicken whisperer'.. I know you'll appreciate her. Just a little 'chicken love' I thought you'd enjoy.

You know Michelle. SOME people don't get home cooking on a regular basis and these postings in particular make SOME people very homesick. It looks DELICIOUS and I wish I could have SOME.

Love you!

I'm sorry Jenna!

I heard James Taylor on the radio today and thought of you.

Watch your mailbox...it's not rosemary potatoes...but I think you'll still like it nonetheless!

Now you are talking my language Michelle! Rosemary potatoes and a Roasted Herbed Chicken has to be one of my favorite homecooked meals.

Looks like you are really enjoying your CSA.

Oh yummy!! I so wasn't into my chicken last night. Wish I had seen this first! We try to eat our reds before the others because they don't seem to keep as long.

Looks absolutely divine. I love potatoes made this way. Simple yet oh so good. The chicken pasta dish sounds yummy too...maybe you could share?
