Thanks,

Mimi:

My favourite way to serve New Potatoes is to boil them, skin on until they
are just starting to crack at the skin.  I then drain them, add a good
helping of butter, sour cream, salt and pepper.  I stir this all together
and replace the lid of the pot so that the mixture stays hot.  It becomes a
creamy delicious side dish.

Yes, nicely done Alyson.  When I do them that way, I chuck a bay leaf or
sprig of rosemary or thyme into the boiling water.
Mimi, try browning a few pork chops in a frying pan, then cover them with a
can of mushroom soup cut with milk.  Add pepper and a bay leaf or one of the
above spices, or combos of your own choosing, eh?
Simmer, covered, for about an hour, add *whole new spuds* about halfway
through.
Serve chops on light rye toast, nice whole green beans or your fav veggies,
glass of wine, voila!

One easy way would be let them cool and dress in mahonaisse, (the
potatoes, not you)

An afterthought, add chopped italian sweet onions or spring onions
(scallions?)  and chives
