Aidan LOVES aardapples (potatoes). i try to 'spice up', jazz up his potatoes once in a while so he wont get bored of his food. i normally add dried herbs when i grill his potatoes (together with olive oil) but eversince he turned 1, i dare to give him a taste of 'real' food. and now that he's turning 16 months, he's been eating the food that we eat (with no salt, sometimes, just a tad bit of salt). so far so good.
I LOVE Oil & Vinegar. they have very good range of oils, dippers, pestos... i cant get enough of them. one product that we always have in our kitchen is their dipper. its basically a combination of herbs and some with spices, ready for you to add to your oil for dressings, or just add mayonaise for that super delicious dip! i think they come in 4 different tastes. i used Tuscany Blend for Aidan.
(p.s: rita if you're reading this, i think they're opening one in seattle!!)
AIDAN'S OIL & VINEGAR TUSCANY BLEND FRIES
Cut the potatoes into long strips and wash throughly.
Pour over some olive oil, and add 1tbsp of the dipper. mix them well.
Put them in the oven and grill at 200c till golden brown.
But if you prefer them to be in a slightly unhealthy way, you can fry them.
