Fried Smashed Potatoes with Lemon

Fried Smashed Potatoes with Lemon

As I mentioned yesterday, I made an entirely yellowish meal and served it on a yellow plate.  Not my finest plating moment.  But just pretend that it was bright and colorful, because it tasted bright and colorful.  Served with a salad, which of course I didn’t take a picture of because it was green and that would have added a bit of interested to my photo, it was a perfect meal.

Speaking of pictures, Android FINALLY got Instagram and I am beside myself with happiness.  Of course, then Facebook goes and buys it, so I don’t know what that means.  But anyway, come follow me and I’ll follow you and we’ll all be one happy Instagram bunch.  My instagram ID is @pamgreer. 

Alright.  Back to these potatoes.  They came from my new favorite cookbook, Weeknights with Giada: Quick and Simple Recipes to Revamp DinnerI’m sorry to keep harping on it, but really, she put “Quick and Simple” in the title – my two favorite words when it comes to cooking.  These were wonderful.  I had them for dinner and then leftovers for lunch.  I could eat them every day.  Really.

And guess what?  I found them online, Fried Smashed Potatoes with Lemon – so I don’t have to type it all in here!!!  Yay.  Go check it out.  Make them.  Come back and thank me.

 

 

This will be my entry for Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!

Yellow is the new black this season, so you're all set. :-) I'm going to check out that Giada book, too.

I long for the day my kids embrace potatoes. I miss them. Waaaaaaa.

I could go for these! My husband is not a big potato fan..but I think it might just be from having bland boiled potatoes as a child. Maybe I'll use this to convert him.

I don't even know what Instagram is. But then, I'm a techno-dope. I don't even facebook.

Your potatoes sound good, even if they did contribute to a monochrome dinner. Those were in vogue around 1900, so maybe you're reviving an old style of plating? Just don't do beef and beets. That would be too red.

I will. Make them and thank you. :)
Always playing catch-up with you. Must tell you about my first visit to Paris many years ago when my daughter was living there. I walked into her apt on the west bank, and there in the middle of her table was a HUGE glass bowl filed with peonies. I'll never forget how beautiful it was and how enchanted I was with Paris. Peonies now always remind me of that day.

These potatoes have potential addictive qualities. And I don't mind the yellow plate at all!

I think this potato recipe sounds really good Pam and I'm liking your yellow meal. And by the way, when I went to the link to find the recipe, your photo is times better that Giada's.
