We had computer trouble yesterday, so I didn't get to blog. It was after midnight by the time it was up and running. By then sleep was more important.
Saturday night my husband and I went to a going away party for some friends. Our host grilled chicken breasts outdoors. They were fabulous. The host said he would be fixing pinto beans. Everyone else was asked to bring another side dish that would go with grilled chicken.
Pinto beans are beneficial for my Type A husband, but I needed to make sure there would be a vegetable for me to eat. I decided to do cottage fries. I made two batches: one with white potatoes and one with sweet potatoes. They were a big hit. At the end of the party, the white potato bowl was empty (hurray, no avoid leftovers) and there were only a few sweet potato fries left.
I was glad I had looked out for myself. Except for the host's pinto beans and my potatoes, there were no vegetables! Everyone else brought bread or dessert. I have grumbled before in my blog that vegetables seem to be out of favor right now. That's not a good trend for health, and is somewhat ironic given all the news articles about an epidemic of obesity.
