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!
