Well, maybe not just yet. It is actually not even 8.00 in the morning as I am writing this, and I have not had my breakfast yet, but since it has been ages since I last posted anything about food here, I think it is about time I add another entry to "recipes".
I have written before about how much of my cooking (especially on the rare occasion when it is just for myself) is based on making do, and the other day, I was doing just that.
There were a few spuds left over from the weekend, and half a length of the goat cheese roll (not a roll as in bread, but because it is rolled up in two different layers), plus the herbs on my windowsill in the kitchen had grown enough to be of some use.
So I peeled the potatos and cut them in quarters, greased an oven pan with a bit of olive oil, put the spuds in facing the flat sides up, sprinkled them with a bit of salt and left them at 200 C (390-400 F) for about 25 minutes. No precise timing there; I just kept checking on them after around 20 minutes and then again a little later.
The spuds and cheese went back into the oven for another 5 minutes or so, just right for the cheese to start melting and the potatos to finish cooking, but not too long; burnt cheese turns bitter and does not smell very nice.
I added some fresh thyme leaves from the pot on my windowsill, a bit of pepper, and my lunch was ready.
