This is how we do it!

   For those of you who think that there is nothing more boring and unattractive than potatoes and that you can't serve them at a fancy dinner, you couldn't be more mistaken. I love to experiment and try new things as a side dish, especially when I have a company over, but lets be honest, there is nothing better than a bowl of hot buttery potatoes sprinkled with fresh dill. Justin can tell you that it doesn't get any more Polish than that. Everywhere you go there are potatoes, you just can't escape them in Poland. So if you want to impress your friends with transforming such an ordinary ingredient into an extraordinary side dish, follow me. There is nothing cooler than a combination of small, colorful potatoes that look like a piece of art on the plate. You couldn't need fewer ingredients than that:

*  2 pounds of small colorful potatoes (yellow, red, and purple)
*  1 tbsp butter (melted)
*  2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
*  salt

1. Wash and gently scrub the potatoes, don't peel.
2. Boil potatoes in salty water for about 15-20 minutes, until they are fork tender.
3. Drain them, add butter and fresh dill, toss everything together and look how cute they are:

   OK! For all of you that see what I see... this was not my intention! By the time I realized how my "neat" presentation looks like, we already ate all the potatoes and there was no way I could retake the picture... so just look past that, if that's possible. I personally can't stop laughing. BUT, despite the unfortunate layout, the potatoes are super delicious. The touch of butter makes everything taste much better and the dill adds this incredible "Polish" aroma.

      Dill and potatoes are one of my favorite combinations... reminds me of home and summer.
