A Year of Deer, Episode 10: Burgers, Revisited
While husband worked on the burgers, I peeled and chopped and seasoned some potatoes for oven fries. (This was after husband went into the pantry and discovered that over half the potatoes in the bag, which I'd recently purchased, had turned into nasty oblong pockets of potato pus, barely contained by their rotting skins. Sorry, I know that description is gross, but so were those potatoes! I've never had that happen before...perhaps I should google "potato pustulence" to research what went wrong. Do any of my readers have insight on this? Leave a comment!) Anyway, after cleaning up the mess and picking out the few unaffected potatoes, I finally got the potatoes prepped and in the oven.
Sometimes when cooking, I have the good fortune and foresight to time everything just right so that every dish is ready at the same time. Not so Wednesday night. We ate our burgers, and then about 20 minutes later, the potatoes were ready. Oh well. I spun it as a "two course meal" and in the meantime we watched some of the over 30 hours of Olympics coverage we have on the DVR.
