FFwD: Broth braised potatoes
It's been a while since I blogged my last post. It has been such a busy time. My seeds must be ordered and I must know for sure which ones I'll choose. It's not that easy. And I want to grow without pesticides. So I have to look for solutions for pests and sometimes I have to find the companion plant which has to go with the vegetable I would like to grow in order to avoid a pest. And they have to be ordered as well. Can you get the picture?
And worst of it. I've just done February, March and April, the busiest months have to be done. But I'm not going to complain much more. I do love it, but it is a lot of work to seek everything out. It is possible though that my blogging level is a bit low for some time.
I've grown my first crop (for this year) though: My own cup of cress. That was an easy one. Nice to eat with a sandwich of cheese.
But that's not why I was blogging today. For French Fridays with Dorie we made broth braised potatoes. It tasted so delicious. You should try it out. Something else with an ordinary potato.
I can't help wondering how it would taste with my own potatoes though. So I'm certainly going to try this one out another time. The rest of my family loved it to, although my husband (a real potato lover) also likes normally cooked potatoes.
It's definitely a real festive potato recipe, and full of taste.
If you want to see what the other cooks made of it, you can look on:
Have a nice weekend!
