Yesterday I told you about how I found out The Lazy Dad DOES know how to make a compliment on cooking.
And some of you were worried about me. Worried that in 10 years of marriage I never got one single compliment on my cooking. And that in 10 years I never asked Lazy Dad what he thought about my cooking.
Well, don’t you worry your pretty little heads a minute longer. I guess I should have said that in 10 years of marriage I’ve never gotten an ADEQUATE compliment.
I mean, I only got compliments after asking for them of course, and yes, they only included things like, “fine,” “good,” “okay,” and the like, but at least I still got something.
Albeit, a bit of crumbs compared to the huge morsels of compliments he gave himself.
But this made my revelation over him being able to RAVE about cooking that much more enlightening. Because now I know he CAN rave about cooking. This whole time I just thought that part of him was broken. But ah, ha, ha! It’s not after all!
Wait. I suddenly don’t feel better knowing that.
But anyway, I don’t want you thinking Lazy Dad’s a big ol’ mean ogre that never says anything about my cooking.
He’s just a little ol’ mean ogre that never says anything about my cooking.
Feel better now?
I think I do. Maybe.
Well today, after someone had the audacity to ask me for the Lazy Dad’s potato recipe, I thought I’d share with you the potato recipe he “Mmmm’d” his way through. Besides, it’s totally a Lazy Mom Recipe.
Well, in this case it’s a Lazy Dad recipe.
In fact, since it IS a Lazy Dad Recipe, just go ahead and print this recipe off, hand it to your husbands and laugh your way out of the kitchen already. Because if a Lazy Mom Recipe is a recipe so easy even a lazy mom can do it, then the same should be true for a Lazy Dad Recipe, right?
Uh, I SAID, Right?
*tap* *tap* *tap* Is this thing on?
So here you go….
Lazy Dad Breakfast Potatoes
Potatoes (about 3-4 medium sized)
1 Green Pepper
2-3 Tablespoons of butter or olive oil
Put a pot of water to boil. While waiting for it to boil, cut the potatoes in very thin rounds. Then cut the onion and green peppers into bite sized pieces (or use this awesome Lazy Mom Tip instead).
When the pot is boiling, throw your potatoes in for four minutes. While you’re waiting for four minutes, get a skillet warmed up on the stove (over medium heat) and start melting the butter in it.
After four minutes pull the potatoes out and put them into the skillet. Throw in your desired amount of onions and green peppers. Stir them all together and then cover with a lid.
Let it cook for about 5 minutes. Stir once or twice during that time and recover. The potatoes are done once they are browned to your liking.
Sprinkle with garlic salt and serve!
For an extra lazy tip: You can make these ahead of time and store for later. Simply chop everything, boil the potatoes and then store in an air tight container to make for later.
That’s what Lazy Dad did anyway. He chopped up more than he needed, so he saved it to make the next night. You know, cause he loved them so much he had to make them AGAIN.
So there you have it. Our first ever Lazy Dad recipe.
And our first ever marriage counseling will be scheduled very soon.
