  So easy and good - Grilled Potatoes on Rosemary Skewers

I’m embracing the grill for Father’s Day.  It’s nice to let my Grillmaster have fun and tend his own fire.  My hubby just loves potatoes so they are a necessity for my Father’s Day Menu.   Actually love is an understatement.  This is a man who loves a potatoes on a sandwich.  He loves them any way I make them.  This way is quick and easy but looks great.

We happen to have a few rosemary plants in our yard.  Woo, they grow like weeds.  It is amazing how little water they need.  When we were visiting Texas, we saw they growing all over the place.  They smell so incredibly good.  I love to walk out of our front door and smell rosemary wafting through the air.  Since we have so much, I love to find different uses for them.  They make fantastic skewers; plus they help to flavor the potatoes.

My husband loves potatoes or bread or rice. He is a carb man through and through. When my grandparents are visiting, he and my grandfather can go through a loaf of bread in a matter of days. They each love the heal and gallantly “let” the other have it on alternate nights. I don’t think my husband’s life would be complete without potatoes, rice or bread.

What food can your husband or Dad not live without?  I would love to hear.
