Rosemary. I have a little thing for rosemary. But my little thing might be bigger than I thought. I think I have a BIG thing for rosemary. Perhaps it’s my favorite herb. (Don’t tell basil that, mkay?!?) I had some rosemary in the garden this past summer. But I was so busy using up all the tomatoes and green beans, squash and peppers that, sadly, I did not bring my rosemary indoors for the winter, but I did find some at the market over the Christmas holidays. I was browsing along, when I saw this…
Hello…$.10 a sprig. Not too bad for this rosemary lover with no rosemary plant of her own! So Tyler and I stopped. To get a few sprigs of rosemary.
I kept browsing along and found these perfect little red potatoes.
I knew just what I would do with them, as I had just been browsing the Smuckers recipe booklet. I’ve always boiled potatoes when making potato salad. But not anymore! Their Roasted Potato Salad inspired me. The Rosemary inspired me. If you like rosemary, this is a MUST try!
