A few days ago, I mentioned that when I bake potatoes, I always do some extra potatoes for a future side dish, lunch, or for Dan's breakfast.  Tonight I used up some of my "stash" and it felt so good just to pull them out of the refrigerator and have a good side dish in no amount of time!

I also used up some onion, red and green bell pepper, and mushrooms that I had left in the fridge too - hey, it's almost time to grocery shop again, and if you waste food, it does not save you money!  I love the feeling you get when you use up all your groceries w/o any waste!

I sauteed the onion, pepper and mushrooms in some olive oil until it was slightly tender, then I added the cooked, cut up potatoes, some seasoning salt, garlic powder, and thyme.  I made sure some of the potatoes were slightly browned because they are soooooo good when they are crispy!

Voila` - a great, easy side dish!


  1. Good idea!

    I sure hope you enjoy cooking-cause it seems like you do a lot of it!!!

  2. I love using up my stuff too instead of wasting-it does make you feel good!

  3. Yes, I do enjoy cooking and yes, I do a lot of it. If I had a job outside the home, I would not enjoy it so much and I definitely would not make all these different dishes! I guess that's a blessing of being a SAHM (stay at home mom) - it saves money because you don't buy premade items or eat out as much, but you do a lot more work! I just love it when they compliment my dishes - it gives me a satisfaction knowing I've made them happy.

  4. The two times I was complimented on my cooking-that made me happy too!

  5. Oh-I know you've been complimented more than that - I've complimented your cooking many times, and I'm sure others have also!

  6. ohhhh yummmy can i come over for supper sometime?
