Rosemary Potatoes- February 22 Update

Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,

I want to make an addition to my Pho recipe from last week. You also needs lots of fresh chopped basil.

-The weather prevented me from attending the Breakfast for Legislators at Providence Creek Academy and the Hartly Fire Co. breakfast. I was, however, able to attend the Joint Sunset Committee meeting Thursday night.

-The disruptive weather prevented me from going to the annual Lincoln Day Dinner hosted by the Kent County GOP. I won the Legislator of the Year award. John Foltz was the well deserving winner of the Frank Dimondi award. Congratulations to him and thank you for the last few years of unending support and friendship.

-This week I am looking forward to the Small Business Caucus meeting at Painted Stave Distilling on Wednesday.

-Thursday, the House GOP will be caucusing. I am sure the topic of the Senior Tax Credit will come up….

-Friday is the annual Delaware State Sportsman’s Association Freedom Banquet.

-Saturday is the always enjoyable I Love Smyrna School District Day. Saturday night is another yummy Muskrat and Meatloaf dinner at the Blackbird Community Center. Come out to both events and support your community.

-Here are the next round of constituent meetings for March:

There are a lot of different ways to make rosemary potatoes. This is the way I prefer.

-1 bag small Yukon Gold potatoes washed and pierced with a fork

-1 heaping tablespoon dried rosemary

-1 twig fresh rosemary

-1 teaspoon smoked salt

-freshly ground black pepper to taste

-2 crushed garlic cloves

-3 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a plastic baggie and shake until evenly coated. Pour contents into a corningware or similar oven safe container with a lid. Bake 45-60 minutes or until the potatoes are to desired consistency.

— Thanks.
