I was feeling a bit off today, so I snuggled down to watch re-runs of "The Wire", but eventually had to head out to get food, and discovered that tzatziki was just right there on the shelf. A few quick greek potatoes later, I was cheerfully dining while Stringer Bell had to deal with the two baddest mofos in all of Baltimore.
Not the most exciting day in history, gentle reader, but I feel good and comfy, and sleepy, and so I will bid you a fair evening.
GREEK POTATOES, THE SIMPLE VERSION
A handful of red potatoes
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 tbsp oregano (be generous, oregano is delicious!)
2 cloves of garlic, minced fine
salt and pepper to taste (about a tsp of each is good for me, but I prefer heavy seasoning during prep rather than at the table)
1/2 tsp good smoked paprika
Cut the potatoes into wedges, wash, and spread evenly on a baking sheet.
Mix all of the other ingredients together, and drizzle heavily over potatoes.
Bake at 420 for 40 minutes, or until the water evaporates; then turn, add another cup of water, and bake for another 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven.
Slather with tzatziki.
Shove in face.
Enjoy being fat but happy. :)
