Yea, purple potatoes!

So, since my youngest bragged about getting her squats in, I told my trainer.  He promptly decided to one up her.  Drop sets.  So off I went, 50, then 40 then 30 squats with wall squats in between.


Afterward I came home for a quick stop and after collecting Bob we did grilled boneless chops and grilled fries made of purple potatoes after I had a wonderful spinach salad (yum!)

I am a friend pork chop kind of girl so I was a little wary about the grilled chops.  They were great though.  I think I want a little more seasoning and/or fresh garlic on them.  I wasn’t wild about the potato, but I think some of the pieces were cut too thin.  Since they are such a deep color, it’s hard to know when they are done.  Next time we are going to prepare them in the oven.

So here is dinner!

First – the stand by salad.  :)


Now the famous potato in order of preparation:







The final product!  (I didn’t have the peas – I had my veggie packed salad earlier)



I am happy to report that I will my running/walking a 5K on Mother’s Day with my youngest and a friend!
