TV To Table

Just the other day, I was watching Chef at Home and the guy on the tv started frying up some potatoes. Princess and I looked at the tv for a while and then at each other.

Princess: "Mommy, I wish I can have some of that fried potatoes."

Me: "Yeah, I wish for some too."

Then after a while of staring at the tv, the chef, Michael Smith, poured some garlicky dressing over the pan-roasted potatoes.

Princess: "Noooooooo ... That is yucky!"

Me: "Yeah, way too much garlic for me." I am no vampire, but one whole head of it??!!

Princess: "Mommy, can you make the potatoes for me without the yucky sauce (referring to the dressing)?"

Me: "Well, I do have a bag of baby potatoes ... "

20 minutes and many splatters of oil later, we were happily munching on the crispy potatoes. Princess ate hers with her favourite mayonnaise and we ate ours with the reduced garlic version of the dressing.


  1. Is that potatoes? The sauce is so black I can't tell what it is haha!

  2. Haha, I was wondering to post that picture or not initially. It is potato (new potatoes to be exact) but they were deep brownish colour which is not visible under the poor lightings. -.-'

  3. new potatoes??? Hmm i'm very ignorant, don't know there's such.

  4. This is what I found: New potatoes have thin, wispy skins and a crisp, waxy texture. They are young potatoes and unlike their fully grown counterparts, they keep their shape once cooked and cut. They are also sweeter because their sugar has not yet converted into starch, and are therefore particularly suited to salads.

    The ones I used are not longer than my little finger.
