Roasted Teeny Tiny Taters

This is such an easy, go to recipe that I make often in our home when I have the “I can’t think of anything creative” side dish blues.  They are so simple and so tasty and go with just about anything.

Normally, I just dice up a few potatoes but during a recent trip to Omaha to visit the family, we stopped by Trader Joes so I could see what all the hype was about. It was as awesome as I dreamed. Great, organic product at amazing prices. Since I was limited to what I could buy since we were going to have to travel back home with it, I selected these adorable teeny tiny potatoes, a soft pretzel stick (which Noah devoured), and lemon pepper pappardelle pasta. It was really really hard to resist the chocolate, I mean really hard. We are going to go back for another visit soon, I might not be able to keep it under control.

That was kind of a squirrel moment (if you don’t get this watch Up). Anyway, aren’t the taters just too stinkin’ cute? When I asked Joel, he looked at my kind of funny and said “if potatoes could be cute, I guess these would be.” He obviously wasn’t as excited. If you are near a Trader Joe’s I recommend you go pick up a bag. They aren’t just cute but also a time saver!
