Roasted Potatoes and Stir-Fry Beef

Hello, Ladies!

Whew! It is difficult finding an opportunity to get on the computer these days, with my whole family needing to use it in the evenings and my husband needing it for work during the days.

I hope everyone is well and happy! It's gloriously beautiful here today, with the sun shining and warmer temperatures. Hopefully, NO MORE SNOW!!

Today, I'd like to sing the praises of roasted potatoes and stir-fried beef. Yes, I know this is off of my menu plan, but sometimes I get a hankering for something specific and here you have it!
My favorite way to roast potatoes is to take red potatoes, wash and scrub them and leave their skins on. Then I quarter them, toss them with olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and parley flakes, and set them in the oven at 450, uncovered. I eyeball it, but usually it takes 30-40 minutes until they are toasty and fully cooked. Easy and oh, so yummy!
Stir-fry beef is so much easier to make if I have frozen it and allowed it to de-frost enough to be able to slice it. Much easier than trying to cut it while it's completely room temperature! I cut it on an angle and then quickly stir-fry it with a little soy sauce and garlic (love that garlic!). Sometimes I add broccoli.

What a yummy and quick meal to prepare!
Enjoy and have a beautiful day!

Those roasted potatoes look amazing! Do you think that it would work equally well with fresh parsley?

These both look delicious! We enjoy roasted potatoes every week but the beef is something new I would love to try!
Give yourself a hug for from me and I do pray (often)you are doing better.
Va and Sweet Carolinas soon. If our parents will be alright!
