* Buen Provecho: This is a beautiful saying we learned in Ecuador when we were adopting our son. There’s not a good literal translation from Spanish to English, because the loose translation — “Enjoy your meal” — doesn’t capture the full essence of the Spanish meaning. The verb “aprovechar” means to make the most of, or to receive the full benefit of something. Thus, when we say, “buen provecho,” it is offering our hope that the eater will receive the full benefits and advantages of the food we’ve prepared. And that’s my wish for my friends and family when I cook for them — that they will receive all the goodness the food offers.

 ** You’ll see that I often don’t designate specific quantities and measurements in my recipes. I do this because you know better than I do how much food your family needs and what your tastes are. Cooking isn’t an exact science, anyway — it’s more of an art. (Baking is another story — it actually is science — so I include measurements for my baking recipes.) So use whatever quantity you’d like, make changes to suit your tastes, and substitute ingredients to reflect what’s fresh in the garden and what’s available in your kitchen.

  8. buy zyprexa

    Thanks for the tips about credit repair on this blog. Things i would advice people would be to give up the actual mentality that they’ll buy right now and pay out later. As a society all of us tend to do that for many things. This includes holidays, furniture, as well as items we would like. However, you have to separate your own wants from all the needs. When you are working to improve your credit rating score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you are able to shop online to save money or you can turn to second hand shops instead of costly department stores with regard to clothing.

  10. prescription headache med

    Thanks for your thoughts. One thing I’ve got noticed is that banks and financial institutions know the spending habits of consumers and understand that most people max out their credit cards around the holidays. They wisely take advantage of this fact and start flooding your inbox and snail-mail box with hundreds of 0 APR credit card offers soon after the holiday season ends. Knowing that if you are like 98% of the American public, you’ll jump at the chance to consolidate credit card debt and transfer balances to 0 APR credit cards. bbbbaba https://headachemedi.com – buy Headache pain meds

Garden to Kitchen: Parmesan Oven Fries

This fall I gave my son his first cookbook, and this was one of the first recipes he chose to make — and we’re so glad he did.  These crunchy oven fries are simple, healthy, and so delicious that they make you forget you ever ate fries prepared any other way.  You can make them with any kind of potato — my son chose an assortment of tri-colored mini potatoes, which added some nice color.  I’ll admit that these taters did not grow in my garden;  in fact, I have yet to ever grow any kind of potato in my garden.  But they did come from someone’s garden (or farm), so I’m counting it.
 
[Side note about tonight’s version of this recipe:  I threw some sweet potatoes into the mix this evening, because they were dangerously close to going bad, and I needed to use them up.  I generally love roasted sweet potatoes, but I have to admit that tonight’s combo wasn’t my favorite.  The tri-colored potatoes are excellent on their own — they have a great crunch and are garlicky and salty.  And the sweet potatoes are excellent on their own too — soft, sweet, and great with a little sour cream.  But together, they did not shine.  I think the flavor combinations competed with each other, so neither was the star.  Next time, we’ll keep these as two separate recipes — sweet potatoes one week, tri-coloreds the next.]  
Without further ado, here’s the super-easy, super-delicious Parmesan Oven Fries:

Chop your potatoes, throw them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, garlic, Parmesan, fresh rosemary and a dash of salt.  Give them a good toss with your hands, and roast at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes, turning halfway through.

And voila, Parmesan Oven Fries.  Crispy outside, soft inside, super flavorful. 

 

Buen provecho!*
