This is a recipe that I've adapted from a Bon Apetit offering. The
original was a lot fattier, and had rosemary (ick!) in it, instead of the
loverly thyme that I use.

I'm glad you're feeling up to posting all these great recipes! I saved the
lemon bars and almond bars and I'm saving this one right now.
Your "loverly" comment makes me think of "My Fair Lady" :) This is
something to make and eat when watching it... "All I want is a room
somewhere, far away from the cold night air, with one enormous chair, ah,
Wouldn't it be loverly?" :)
I bought yesterday a few baby red potatoes (about 12 or so) and plan to make
them with a shallot-garlic-butter smashed thing. Is there a name when you
do such a thing, smashing stuff and oil to make tasty stuff to smear onto
foods? I can't seem to recall..
The next time I do a potato thing I'm going to get some prosciutto and some
parmesan and try this dish.

These are the BEST potatoes. I make them with the thyme also. I think I better
go to the Deli and get some parmesan and prosciutto. Thanks again for the
