For dinner today, I made “Zesty Roasted Chicken and Potatoes,” again thanks to Betty Crocker’s Good and Easy Cookbook.

The result was somewhat mediocre as I didn’t really know what was meant by red potatoes. I just used regular potatoes, failing to realize red potatoes cook faster because of their size and skin, thus making them perfect for such a dish.

After I served the food, we realized my mistake when we found the regular potatoes were not really fully cooked. We ended up putting them in the microwave for ten minutes to salvage the situation. Eventually, we ate the meal, which turned out not as delicious as I’d hoped.

Ah, well, you live and learn! Bring on those red potatoes.
