The Divine Miss M and her husband have been updating their outdoor living space. Jay rebuilt the deck by designing it and pretty much rebuilding the entire structure all by himself. I believe this project was completed right before Thanksgiving of last year. The guy amazes me! So, this summer has been the time to decorate in style!
Every Saturday night is the time to enjoy summer evenings and throw something on the grill. This was the night for a delicious grilled steak. I sent Miss M my recipe for the most delicious cottage fries and the manner in which to make them come out perfect every time!
Drain all of the water from the potatoes, put the lid back on to the pan and give it a really good shake so that the outside of each potato looks very fluffy.
In a large fry pan/skillet pour about a 1/2 inch of the olive oil, set over a medium to high heat.
When the oil is hot enough arrange some of the slices in the pan, don't try to cook too many at a time, make sure you have room to turn them over.
Place the potatoes in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside….absolutely delicious!
