I don’t know if you can tell or not but I have been sort of flying by the seat of my pants with recent posts. I can’t seem to get into prewriting subjects. So what I’ve done is find what type of food day is happening and then proceed from there. I’m sure you all have noticed that there is some special day – every day.
Even though we are still on a ketogencic diet, we do enjoy some potatoes every once in a while. I shared a Confetti Roasted Potato Salad recipe earlier this week. We had 2 potatoes left so we decided to make some homemade chips which is really a thinly sliced french fry. I was going to use the slicing blade on my food processor but Mac said he used to always use a box grater to cut thin potato slices.
So he cut these potato chips.
We fried them up and they were delicious.
I think homemade chips/fries are almost always better than store bought or fast food.
Today being Picnic Day, I think of sharing a simple meal in a wonderful location. A picnic can be in a park, at the beach or even on your patio. Fried chicken and potato salad (see recipe below) may be what I would make if I were to plan a picnic. It would also be great to have a little something extra like some cut fruit or in this case some garlicky pickled veggies. Here are just a couple of pictures of our picnic.
For a simple and tasty potato salad try this recipe: Dill Pickle Potato Salad
3 med. Potatoes
3 Tbsp. Diced green onion
1 small stick celery
3 Tbsp. Dill pickles
¼ c. mayonnaise
½ tsp. Mustard
2 ¼ oz. Can diced black olives
Cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces (peeling is optional). Cook the potatoes until barely soft. Place under cold water to cool.
While potatoes are cooking, chop the green onions, celery, and pickles and place in a bowl.
Mix mayonnaise and mustard in a large bowl. Add cooled potatoes and the vegetables, mix well. Gently stir in the olives.
For Fathers’ Day, grilling a steak is an easy and simple way to make a nice meal for Dad. Bake a potato and you are done.
Happy Fathers’ Day!!
