Ann Arbor Food Potato Harvest
Long after the garden has been put to bed, there are POTATOES.
Above is a picture of some of the potatoes a grew this year, this crazy garden year. It is almost Dec and I am still enjoying my garden.
Ann Arbor Food Pan Roasted Potatoes
Looking at my potatoes and preparing my standard recipe pan of simple roasted, I wondered about looking into other potato recipes.
Emily asked why.
Why indeed. I can eat roasted potatoes for the rest of my life and not want for any other potato.
Here is my recipe:
1) Wash and rinse as many potatoes as you feel like. (for my that is about 5 pounds)
2) cut them into about 1 inch size pieces.
3) Place in a pan one layer deep (get as many pans as you need. I usually make two pans for leftovers)
4) drizzle some oliver oil on them
5) shake on some salt and dried thyme or rosemary or both
And bake in a 400 degree oven until they are done (45-60 minutes-ish)
Taste and add more salt if desired.
I use yukon gold and red potatoes. I grew red Pontiac and yukon gold this year.

Pad Thai from the Lunchroom @ Mark’s Carts Ann Arbor
Still on my Vegan kick. I had lunch sampler from the The Lunchroom and at San Street at Ann Arbor food carts, Mark’s Carts. The Lunchroom has a three item sampler for $8 and a bunch of great vegan cookies. I also had a mushroom bun from San Street, which also has a tofu bun for vegan options. Emily and I split up the meal for a nice variety (not show below).
Make sure you stake a claim on The Lunchroom cookies. Emily took a bite and would not give it back.

Mum Season: It is officially Fall
Keeping with my Vegan theme for the week, I attended my second Vegan Meetup event in Ann Arbor. It was at Jazzie Veggy on Main Street.
They do a lot of “faux meat items,” which are big hits with the Vegan set. There was “chicken” nuggets, soy sausage, “meat balls” with spaghetti, and more. I am looking to transition out of eating gluten, which means that most of the faux meat is off the menu.
They offered some fun apps of sweet potato fries and Plantain Chips.
We had the Krab cakes, very tasty, the veggie enchiladas and carrot cake.
