9/11 the memories remain

This is my story of that day.

I can't forget what happened.  Every minute is etched into my soul.

I will never forget.  I can never forget.

Garlic rosemary potato chips

Today turned out to be a rainy, pretty generally yucky Labor Day. Total bummer. On the flip side I spent most of the day in my PJ's flipping through Pinterest, folding the laundry I finished yesterday and relaxing before the workweek actually begins. 

I had taken a few potatoes out of the pantry earlier and scrubbed them then went about my business and kind of forgot why I had taken them out in the first place. 

Dinner time rolled around and I knew I had ground beef in the fridge and then I remembered about the potatoes and I thought I'd try a different variation of something I had wanted to try for a while. 

Grilled potatoes on my Foreman grill 

So I took 3 small-medium Idaho potatoes and sliced them evenly. Not too thick but not paper thin either and soaked them in about 3 cups of cold water with about 1/4 tsp sea salt added to the water and let them sit for about half an hour, drained them and let them dry. 

Once the potatoes were dried off I tossed them in a bowl with 1Tbs canola oil, about 1/2 tsp sea salt and good sprinkling of both rosemary and garlic powder (NOT garlic salt!). 

I heated the grill and then carefully laid the slices evenly and not overlapping at all on the grill. Closed it and left or for about 10 minutes. Carefully flipped the potatoes and went about making the rest of dinner. About 15 minutes later the smell of rosemary and potato was happily mingling in my kitchen.  

While I was hoping for something closer to a roasted potato what I ended up with was more potato chip like well seasoned Not fried delicious potato chips. The pieces that were a little thicker were crispy on the outside while staying soft and fry like on the inside. 

So delicious and so incredibly easy. 

Happy Labor Day!!

Well... looks like any BBQ potential has been squashed with this rainy weather today... but I shall not be deterred!  I have plenty to get done before the workweek actually begins for me.

Everyone have a safe and happy Labor Day :)
