|Pan fried potatoes, garlic wedges, radish and grilled chicken
On Friday nights we often have a relaxing dinner with wine, simple food, a movie (from Netflix) or guitar music (from the Husband). Tonight wasn't exception. The theme was college, not intentionally, it just came out that way.
We went to different colleges, lived in different dorms, but the student atmosphere was the same: a daily dose of happiness with a little money, a very little time, and a little food. And we made sure to take it all in.
|Pan fried potatoes - favorite student's food!
Most desirable food for most college students was pan fried potatoes in which my husband would have a PhD. It's not just a simple process of frying in a cast iron pan some sliced potatoes, no.
It's rather a student's ritual of gathering with friends, peeling a couple of kilograms of potatoes, cutting it into long strips, while chatting (or gossiping) and sipping some wine.
When potatoes go into the skillet it's important when to turn it: not too early to prevent it from mushing, and not too late (burned potatoes don't taste good, you know that, right?).
How do you know when it's the right time? One guitar song - time to turn, another song - turn again. Third song - turn, season and cover. And the forth song - set the table, pour the wine, and grab your fork!
Have a daily little dose of fun, my friends!
|Music, especially guitar music, makes everything better. Add some good wine and enjoy!
