Weeknight dinners :)

Doesn't that look appetizing? Yeah it was just that good.

So a lot of my friends wonder how I can cook myself dinner. Dinners for one are never really fun. A lot of work for just eating alone and then mounds on pots and pans to clean up.

This is what I pretty much make when I'm too tired to cook and don't want to clean a sink full of pots.

Potatoes & Onions
  • 2 small-medium potatoes (depending on how hungry I am)
  • 1/4 white onion
  • garlic
  • Seasonings I vary between (I only use one): Paprika, chives, rosemary
  • Salt & Peppa (:P)

Pretty much throw in a pan with a little bit of oil. Add potatoes first. When the potatoes are almost done, add the onions. If you add everything at the same time onions will burn. Season to taste. If you want some hot potatoes use cayenne, red pepper flakes, and/or chili powder.

Honestly, I throw this together in about 15 minutes. And I only have one pot to clean. It's fab. Yeah, I know it's starchy. Add what you want to make you feel better about eating it. More veggies & leftover meats would allow you to cut back on using so many potatoes. You can add in bacon, top with cheese & sour cream, whatever. I'll eat about half and then store the rest for another night.

That looks really great - how do you think it would be with maybe sweet potatoes?

Either way, I can't wait to make it!
