Baked dinner!

OK, it's not really called "baked dinner."  But, it was baked, and it was dinner!

I went to a friend's house for dinner recently, and liked it so much that I copied what she did the next day.

She got all her recipe ideas from pinterest.  Which I have not yet become involved with.

The main course was baked shrimp:

Lay out pieces of uncooked shrimp on a cast iron pizza pan. Pour on some olive oil, and add rosemary, oregano, tarragon and thyme.  Into the oven at 350.

The first side dish was smashed red potatoes:

Boil red potatoes, whole.  After boiling, smash them with a potato masher so they're flat.  Lay them out in a cast iron pan.  Pour on some olive oil, add a little bit of grated white cheese*, and add rosemary, oregano, tarragon, and thyme.

*White cheese could be any white cheese you like, whether it's mozzarella, parmesan, provolone, or white american.

Into the oven at 350 at the same time you're baking the shrimp.

Depending on how much room you have in your oven, you may need to bake the second side dish separately:

Slice some red tomatoes.  Lay out on a cast iron pan.  Add a slice of provolone (or any white cheese).  Pour on some olive oil, and add rosemary, oregano, tarragon, and thyme.

This is a very easy and VERY GOOD dinner!

And nothing is better for baked dinner, than cast iron.
