BBQ Potatoes

BBQ Potatoes
This is so simple it doesn’t even qualify as a recipe. But I don’t care, sharing it anyway! When I whipped up an indecent amount of Sunshine BBQ Chicken, I needed an easy side dish that wouldn’t overrule the flavor of the chicken and could also be prepped in an oven as well… since I know not every one has a Big Green Egg. Yes, I know, you can stop glaring at me now! I’m letting you live vicariously through me, what else can I do?!? These were so very good. Ingredients: 1 1/2 pound potatoes (equal sized) 1 grated garlic clove or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder chicken or vegetable broth tiny cubes butter minced parsley pepper and salt Optional: lime or lemon juice Directions: Get your BGE (or oven) going and keep it steady at 350Fº (175Cº). Use an ovenproof dish. Add the grated garlic or powder to the broth and heat it for a minute to get the flavors going. Place a tiny slice of butter on top of each potato. Maybe I should have called them BBQ Butter Potatoes?

Monday- black beans over rice Tuesday- southwest soup with black beans Wednesday- black bean burgers Thursday- quinoa and black beans Friday- salad topped with black beans I realize that this probably seems a bit repetitive to most, but when you have to care for young children by yourself, you are doing well just to get food on the table. Sunday prep night Probably the best tip I can offer for doing this meal thing alone is my Sunday prep night. This is what I have prepared for the upcoming week. Mix together all ingredients.

Roasted Ranch Potatoes with Bacon and Cheese Okay. I realize that several of my recent posts have included bacon in some form or another. On one hand, I think it is partly due to the fact that a couple of weeks ago my grocery store had a killer deal (half off!) on thick, center cut bacon. Of course, I stocked up. On the other hand, I'm wondering if all the recent talk in the news about a pending bacon shortage has me scrambling to enjoy this salty, porky food as much as possible.
