Close up of Parsley Buttered Potatoes
I know it's been a few days since I've posted, and I will try to do as much of a recap as possible. I've been grading like crazy, and I'll have much more time after Tuesday because I will be on Christmas break. I'm so ready for it. I've been having a ton of leftovers, but I made a few new things as well. The Parsley Buttered Potatoes shown above are from the leftover category, but when I was going through pictures I noticed this really cool picture, so I thought I would do a quick recipe for them to make up for my lack of posts this week.
Parsley Buttered Potatoes are a dish my grandma would make often in the summer when she had a lot of parsley to get rid of from the garden. It's very easy and inexpensive to make even if you don't have garden-fresh parsley. I often make it when I need a little bit of parsley for another recipe because it's a nice way to use up the entire bunch.
Parsley Buttered Potatoes (Once again more of a method than an actual recipe)
2 lbs red potatoes cut into bite-sized pieces
1 bunch parsley either Italian or curly, washed and minced
1 stick butter or margarine cut into about 8 pieces
Salt and pepper
1. Steam potatoes until they can be pierced with a fork, between 10 and 15 minutes. Don't overcook; you don't want the potatoes to fall apart when your mixing them.
2. Place in a bowl and mix with butter while still hot, so it melts.
3. Mix in chopped parsley.
4. Salt and pepper to taste
Note: I've also melted the butter with garlic and then added to the potatoes. It's an extra step, so I didn't do it this time, but it's delicious.
Now pictures from other things I've been eating:
Leftover Chicken pilliard, parsley buttered potatoes, and brussel sprouts
Eggs and cheese on toast
Steaming green beans.
These tacos were amazing! I need to try and make them one more time, but I think I've perfected the seasoning! It's similar, but much better than store-bought.
