Re: side dish ideas

Oh, and I've been meaning to make the hot crash potatoes that the PP mentioned. They sound so good!

We also do green beans,garlic and butter and sautee until al-dente.

I do this for a variety of veggies: broccoli, green beans, asparagus are all good ones. I usually do olive oil/butter - heat until melted & bubbling a bit, turn off the heat and add in the garlic (so it infuses instead of burning) and then saute or steam the veggies and toss the oil/butter/garlic over the top.

Other ideas for rice is to find a pilaf recipe you like - I like a lot. Or, for a quick pasta side dish - prepared pesto - just boil the pasta and mix in the pesto - if you have fresh basil and/or pine nuts, this one is always a hit.
