herby, mustardy potato goodness

Yesterday's Food Whore blog entry described her obsession with potatoes - she likes them any way she can get them. I feel a bit like a copycat saying I feel exactly the same way, but I do. And as she described her favorite potato dish that she used to make with her grandfather, I knew I had to have exactly that with dinner.

I tried to take photos, but...well, it was gone. Really really quickly. You'll have to take my word for it that these potatoes are divine.

Herby, Mustardy Potatoes
Serves 2

1 lb baby red potatoes
1 tsp grain mustard
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbp olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (basil, parsley, dill, etc.)
salt and pepper to taste

After scrubbing the potatoes, place in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring the pot to a boil and cook potatoes till tender. Drain into a colander and then return the potatoes to the pot. Add all remaining ingredients and stir to combine. (Putting the top on the pot and shaking it also works well!) Serve warm.
