Since my kitchen is nice and clean and I have great fresh groceries in the house what's a gal to do? Well, cook, of course. So that is what I did.
There is no question about it, I really dislike the frozen prepared foods from the grocery store but I have to succumb to them more often than I would like to admit. My forays into the kitchen lately have not always resulted in finished products to my full liking. Hopefully, I can get my mojo back. And, this may just be the beginning of that journey.
I decided to keep it simple and not try any new recipes, just solid good home cooked food. I have been wanting to make some oven roasted potatoes and I have some fresh Yukon potatoes. So-so easy. This is what I did. First, coat the potatoes with olive oil. And then season them with garlic ( prepared chopped garlic from a jar works fine), kosher salt, black pepper, dried thyme, dried oregano, dried basil and some grated Parmesan cheese (from recently purchased 3 oz. Kraft grated parmesan). Even though I usually avoid this product I bought it because of the small container which to me meant that it probably would not get old and then wasted. It was perfect for this quick little adventure of mine into the kitchen. No fuss, no mess!
Lovely white fresh mushrooms were for sale at a price that was so low that I can't remember ever seeing it that low. And, since I like sauted mushrooms it was going to happen.
Now some steamed very fresh Broccoli Florets.
