Recipes for Spring for those of you who have asked.....

Side Dish Potatoes with Rosemary -YUM
2 pounds of varied potatoes-red, yellow, finger,whatever
Olive Oil
Black pepper (ground please)
2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
Cut all of the potatoes in half. Next mis them in a bowl with oil, salt, pepper,garlic and rosemary. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. These are great with any barbqued meat or just oevn baked chicken.
Someone wrote to ask for a recipe that isn't so calorie laden. This is a good and simple recipe for anyone and good for you. I have used this for over 35 years.
Mary Lou's quick and easy supper
On a medium piece of foil, place a chicken breast with herbs or barbeque sauce or any sauce in the sauce aisle (lemon, teriyaki,Thai,Mexican,there are loads of good flavors). I just grab a spoon and get it on there nice and sloppy. Next place your favorite vegies on top like broccoli (my favorite),mushrooms, zuchinni, carrots grated, celery, onions, caulifower, or any other vegie you love. I put lots of variety on mine as I like them all. Cut them up small. Next add 2 Tablesppons of water to the bottom of the foil to help steam everything. Seal tightly but leave room for the steam (important). I add a little salt and some pepper to mine when it comes out of the oven.
Bake 450 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Have rice made or bread for a little oomph unless you are watching your calorie/carb intake.
This is delicious and can be done with fish as well.
Hope you enjoy these as they really are quite good.

Mary Lou, some time try making these with mint instead of rosemary, but toss the mint and garlic AFTER you roast the potatoes.

The flower quilt is great. Maybe my new granddaughter needs one :)

I've made these potatoes too. They're even good if you mix in some sweet potatoes and parsnips, and a few peeled chunky chopped carrots. A big hit during the holidays, served with prime rib. Yum!
