Roasted rosemary garlic potatoes

Roasted potatoes are one of my favorite things to make for Sunday dinner. You only need a few ingredients: potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, rosemary leaves, salt, and pepper. Wash and quarter the potatoes, throw them in a large ziploc bag, then season. Seal the top and mix everything around to make sure that all the potatoes are coated.

Bake in a pre-heated oven. Higher temps will crispify (that's my made-up word for today) the outside of  the potatoes. I had mine in the oven yesterday at 350 for about 40 minutes, and then boosted the temperature to 450 for about 15 minutes, but I like them really crisp.

(I forgot to take a picture until we had devoured most of the potatoes.) Yesterday, we ate them with baked pork chops, applesauce, steamed broccoli, and a green salad.

What do you like for Sunday dinner? Leave me a comment and tell me all about it.

Man, I'm loving this new blog!! The pitas and hummus look delicious on the previous post, and your pictures of the roasted potatoes made my mouth water, especially when I thought of pairing them with pork chops and applesauce!! In fact, I bought some pork chops so I can do just that ;)

Keep the posts coming!
