Blonde potatoes

Today will will make blonde potatoes to eat with the meatloaf and we will make also a nice tomato and onion sauce.

While the meat is in the oven, I boil a bunch of little potatoes in their skins.

When they are boiled, I handle each of them with a fork and peel them.

Then I put some oil in a pan, not olive, sunflowers or something like that. I put in a big pan to avoid the hot spill going everywhere - it works as a wall.

When fried, I put on a kitchen paper to absorb the oil very well.

Ah, it's the most delicious thing, much better then french fries and such. I believe they are the best potatoes in all the world!

Now the sauce to put on the meatloaf.

Put some olive oil in a pan and add finely cut onion. When it is transparent, add tomato and parsley. You may add some seasoning you like, as oregano, for instance.

Add some water and let it boil.
You will see how good it is.

This was a recipe from my grandmother.

The meatloaf & potatoes look delicious! I'll have to try them both. I never thought of frying a whole potato before.
Thanks for stopping by my place this morning! I appreciate your visit!
