Easy Potatoes
So, I was in a hurry making dinner one night a few months ago and, rather than just toss potatoes in the microwave to bake, I experimented. I know... dangerous. But it came out great and is now a favorite side for us.

Red potatoes (2-3 per person depending on size)
Olive oil
Italian herbs (fresh is best, followed by the stuff in the tube, followed by dry)
Salt to taste

Cut potatoes into 1/2 inch pieces, Place in large, microwave-safe bowl. Dress with olive oil and herbs. Sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat potato pieces. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on "potato" setting in microwave. Allow the plastic wrap to "vacuum" down onto potatoes and let rest for about 5 minutes. This works like those vacuum seal things on those fancy cooking shows and forces the flavor into the potatoes.

Serve with broiled chicken breast (what we do) or whatever.

... in a world where I feel so small I can't stop thinking big!
