Small Potatoes

I'm not kidding - this post really is about small potatoes.

I had to work late tonight, so Willow and I stopped in at Trader Joe's to look for something quick for dinner, and we found these mini potatoes. How mini?


Um, does the fact that I could put 4 of them in my handy-dandy shot glass tell you anything?! I wasn't sure how long to cook them for - so I put them in a pot, poured in enough water to cover the potaoes and then some and salted it - and let them cook on a high boil for 15 minutes.

I squished them with a fork, put a little butter and some garlic and salt - and they were so yummy! I was a little afraid the skins would be bitter, but they weren't in the slightest.


(The rest of the quick dinner? Broccoli and cauliflower (I had eaten the cauliflower before I thought to take the picture), foccacia (meh.), and breaded fish fillets with mango salsa.)

Those are perfect for salt potatoes too. Now I'm hungry.
