Randy and I have become hooked on Food Network. So we have begun cooking together and putting our on spin on dishes. Tonight I was the executive chef and Randy was the sous chef. We started with a thick ham steak that I baked in the oven at 350 for 1 hour and 45 minutes uncovered. Our starch for the meal was potato salad my first ever attempt. I peeled and cubed 5 potatoes put them in a pot of water with salt,
pepper,garlic powder and 1/2 cup butter. I boiled them till tender but not mushy. Randy hard boiled 3 eggs peeled and chopped them for the salad. He also chopped 1/4 of a white onion . We added drained potatoes,eggs,onions,2 tbs of pickle cubes,mustard,mayonnaise,and parsley flakes and lightly mixed.
We had spinach cooked in bacon grease with bits of bacon. pinto beans and sliced beets. It was a wonderful supper. And preparing it together was fun.
