the (mis)adventures of an aussie girl in a kitchen somewhere in europe

You know what we did this summer

Summer 2006, a horror movie. First it's too damn hot. Then it's too damn cold. And worst of all, there is no opportunity to make use of Mr. B's brand new grillin' machine. But as luck would have it, Wednesday was a ripper, 27 fantastic degrees, not a cloud in the sky. It's time to smoke meat.

As residents of a garden-less, terrace-less and balcony-less apartment, Mr. Big and I are keen BBQ fans. And Mr. and Mrs. B's garden is the perfect barbie setting - shady trees, sunny spots, beautiful flowers- really dreamy. Complete with veggie patch. Every side dish accompanying our meat this summery eve was home-grown, home-cooked and elegantly served by Mrs. B. All straight from the garden. Potatoes and chives, tomatoes, beans ... This must be the equivalent of writing, producing and directing your own movie! You are Woody Allen. You invented the word "multi-tasking". Not only is this super impressive, it just tastes so damn good.

Mrs B's Potatoes
500g late-harvest potatoes
canola oil
salt and pepper
onion, finely diced

Leave skins on the potatoes and slice into bite-sized pieces (or leave them whole if they are small enough and you are a patient cook). Fry in a pan over a moderately high heat with the oil for about 15 minutes or until they are cooked through. Throw into a serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss through the chives and the onion.

    Photos remind me of a great garden party I went to. Must try the recipe - looks scrumptious
