Earlier this week I made a roast taters and sweet pepper dish that She Who Must Be Obeyed really loved...

5-6 med sized taters, skinned of you prefer, chunked to bite size.

Chunk enough multi-colored bell/sweet chilies to make an appx 50/50 ratio to the taters.

Olive oil to coat and salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder to taste.  Mix well.

Turn out onto baking sheet or into aluminium pans, roast @ 450 for 30 min, turning and stirring @ 15 min.

It served the two of us but was the only dish as it was an experiment.  Would probably serve 4 with a main dish and a side or two.

There were no leftovers.

Gonna make it again this weekend and add some chunked onions with mebbe a main of roast chicken or ham and some Mac & Cheese...

What's on your menu??

Sunday night I think it will be roast duck, but I am looking forward to Monday night when I will try to remember how I did roast duck leftovers in cream sauce a few weeks ago. It was one of the best meals I have had and I think the best I have ever made. 

Can I do it again?

I think it was mushroon and onion sauteed on low heat for a while. I don't remember if I sauteed cabbage with that... Anyway, I pulled all the remaining bits of meat and skin from the carcass and added them to the sautee then poured in some thickened cream and let it reduce for a while.

"...roast duck leftovers in cream sauce..."  "...mushroom and onion sauteed on low heat for a while..."  "...sauteed cabbage..."

Not a duck fan, but it sounds like it would be good served over a crusty, toasted bread...  "Stuff" on a Shingle.  Cabbage is always good.

APny - "I make the same potato and peppers dish but add sausages."

Sounds good.  What kind of sausage do you put in??  I'm thinking Italian for a dinner and some Tennessee Pride w/ scrambled eggs & cheese for breakfast...

Forger, yes, a mix of hot and sweet Italian. Sometimes I do a spiral suasage surrounded with the peppers, onions and potatoes. Just bake the whole thing. You can add a splash or red wine as it bakes. Yummy.

...we'll probably do a traditional burgers and dogs over the charcoal grill while we watch a movie on the inflatable screen in the backyard with friends.

Before that, though, my lovely, bad a$$ wife will be butchering some of our fowl (ducks, turkeys, and chickens) in order to make some jerky of each kind and Turducken sausage.

Couple of good beers on the side.

Trying to squeeze out some "quality of life". ;)
