#belowtheline, jackpot

while walking our pup yesterday, i noticed a familiar looking shrub near the park. i bent down to get a whiff of the bush and sure enough, it smelled like my catholic, portuguese, grandmother's kitchen after she'd burned the sprigs of green (to ward off evil spirits, of course.)

mmm... rosemary.

one of tyler's favorite dishes that i make is rosemary potatoes.  praise the lord, we saved the potatoes for the end of the week so today, i diced a whole 38 cent spud, sprinkled bits of rosemary on top and threw it in a pan on the stove.  we can't afford oil on $1.50 a day so i improvised with a bit of water and covered the pan, adding more water when it would evaporate.

the end result: bliss in seasoned starch form.

  1. Those look awesome! I love how there is rosemary all over Seattle. I used to work at Macrina at the top of Queen Anne, and a few times we ran out of rosemary. We would just run across the street and steal some from the front yard of an office building. :)
