Don't fall over . . .

I know. It has been such a dry time for posts on this blog and then bam, two posts in the same week? One from each contributor. Careful, grab that chair back to steady yourself and take a deep breath.

I just made something I call "Mama's Mash". Dad is away on business, and we just got our first CSA bag for 2009. Fingerling potatoes, celery root, butternut squash, onions, garlic and brussel sprouts. So for a quick dinner for les filles, I whipped this up.

Toss in large, ideally cast iron, skillet that has been preheated and has about a tablespoon of olive oil shimmering in the bottom.

One onion, chopped
Two cloves of garlic, smashed and chopped
5-7 potatoes, coarsely chopped


Add a bunch of bacon, chopped into one inch wide pieces.


Add small chopped pieces of broccoli


add salt and pepper


Cover with lid. Stir every five minutes or so until everything looks cooked and is slightly caramelized.

Turn off heat.

Grate a nice layer of cheddar cheese on top. Put lid back on so cheese will melt.


Plates were cleaned in a matter of minutes.

Not terribly inventive, but a great mid-week, rainy evening meal
