{specialty produce : fingerling potatoes}

4 Mar

fingerlings-1

tell me you’ve tried these before?!  i’m pretty sure i’ve mentioned them at least once or twice on this here blog of mine… they are definitely a staple in my home!  what’s better than colourful carbohydrates?!

fingerlings-2

i was a little surprised and way excited when i spotted this multi-coloured pack at the market. my favourite way to prepare them is to simply drizzle them with tons of olive oil and S&P and roast them in a 400 degree oven for about a half hour…

fingerlings-3

the finished product is a sheen, tender and sweet potato ready for poppin!

fingerlings-4

they make an excellent side dish, and are also great in soups.

      as silly as it may sound, you choke me up with your comments like that. it makes me feel so validated in sharing my two passions with the world via this platform. as for the HOW?! – i just open my eyes, and turn on my canon 😉 … i just know it’s a gift – and i’m grateful to have an eye that sees beauty in the smallest things in life. 🙂 thank you for appreciating, sweet girl!!!! xxoo

        thank you ashley! it’s a gift, for sure. however, good fotography is also very simple, and it’s really all about two things : composition and lighting. …and, a great little canon lense 😉

    I cut them up into chunks and steam mine, then drizzle with garlic salt, pepper and olive oil, and sautee’ for a bit. Just this morning I cut up the pre-cooked ones into a veggie sautee, with two eggs over easy. Yum!
