Those look delicious. I like my potatoes, sliced and fried, or mashed or just baked in the oven. Or on the grill!

Dear Lucy, I think I'll share one of my best summer recipes for potato.
Skin the potatoes and cut them to small 2-3cm cubes.
Heat oil in a large pot.
You might start with garlic or can leave that out.
When the oil is a bit hot, add potatoes, not all at the same time.
Keep stirring!
Sauté potatoes and burn their sides a bit.
Cover and stir.
when potatoes are halfway ready, add any vegetable you like. I like adding zucchinis, summer squashm celery sticks, green pepper, mushroom. Salt and season to your liking.
Keep stirring.
When the mix is ready, add handfulls of freshly cut herbs.
Serve with salads or with sour cream.
That is an easy-to-make summer recipe.

Szélső Fa,
Thank you for recipes. I will try it.
Do you need salt or butter? Do you use something spice? You don't add
water?

>Do you need salt or butter?

Sure. Use salt as you wish.
If you don't like the oil, you can use butter instead.

>Do you use something spice?

Those fresh herbs spice it up really good. By fresh herbs I mean, cause I usually use basil, lovage, parsley leaves, celeriac leaves, sage, oregano - whatever you have in the garden. Take a handful or two.

>You don't add water?
Yes, you might feel that you have to add water. In practice, if you start sautéing the potatoes in oil (or butter) and later cover the pot, fresh potatoes will let out some water from themselves. So, there's no need to give extra water. But if you feel it's going to burn without water, than add water.

Lucy - You are a wonder! I linked to you thru Jay's blog. I'm not smart or clever enough to try and blog in Japanese and I love that you're doing this and doing it so well. I'm enjoying your posts and pictures and feel like I'm in Japan as I read them. Thank you.

Hi Lucy!
It's really hot and muggy here in Japan, isn't it!
Wonderful potapoes! I usualy make a soup with leftover vegetables and POTATOES and bacon. You can eat it cool or hot. The both is good.
Take care of yourself.
