If there isn't much to eat in the house, or if I'm feeling particularly lazy, or if I forget to take something out of the freezer... I can never seem to figure out what to make for supper. On these occasions (at least once a week) we'll have leftovers, pizza or take-out, or we may even just have popcorn and junk. Real healthy, I know.
Last night was one of those nights. I was low on veggies, hadn't taken any meat out of the freezer, and the leftovers were scarce. So I challenged some of my Etsy friends (those awesome folk that frequent the wonderful MMG thread) - I told them I had baby potatoes, tortilla wraps and roma tomatoes. What should I make?
Nikid, who has incredible sweets in her shop, suggested I make potato wraps. Honestly, I was skeptical... potatoes in a wrap? With salsa, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese? I don't know... Then asiasi suggested I just fry the potatoes up. Mmmm, fried potatoes. But, I didn't have onions, so they would be meager fried potatoes. I couldn't decide between these two different ideas.
Almost at the same time, they both suggested I fry the potatoes, and use that in the wraps. That way, if I (or Pat) didn't like the wraps, there would still be delicious fried potatoes. Genius! Why didn't I think of that???
So I fried up my potatoes. Salt, pepper, garlic salt and lots of onion powder to make up for the lack of onions (some cook I am... no onion!). Oh, and some chili-infused oil (the red flecks): Of course, I only took the one picture, well before the potatoes had even started cooking. They turned a lovely crisp brown, and were delicious. And the wraps? Oh my goodness they were delicious! Salsa for a little kick, lots of cheese to melt around the potatoes (mmmmm, cheesy potatoes) and chopped tomato and lettuce to add some juiciness and crispness. I'm looking forward to my lunch of leftovers!
