Because of work schedules I often find myself cooking for one. As I was driving home last night I remembered I had stocked up on veggies at the grocery store over the weekend. My mouth started watering for my favorite thing- a big bowl of cucumbers in apple cider vinegar with a little pepper and lots of salt. Mmm.
And then I thought about another favorite- simple boiled potatoes with some (okay, lots of) butter. Mmm- again. When you bring these two together is it magic for me. I like a fork full of potatoes and a slice of cucumber all in one bite.
Then I remembered something in my freezer and here is where the real magic happens. Abracadabra!
If you have not tried these you need to head out and stock up. Ten minutes in the microwave and voila, yummy potatoes. No peeling, no chopping, no boiling water. Magic. These could be used for boiled, mashed and even soups I suppose.
I had comfort food in 10 minutes flat. And if you have ever encountered me after an afternoon without food and an hour in the car, you would know that the faster supper appears on the table the better.
Cool as a cucumber...as in happy, full and relaxed. After a calm and comfortable night, I am ready for another busy day.
