New Potatoes in Garlic Lemon Butter~ super side dish!

(originally made 8/11/2008)
Due to really bad weather on our trip, a lot of my meals didn't happen as planned.   Our site flooded, we had no fire, etc.   But there were a few food related bright spots, and one was this recipe Rosie posted.     I prepped the garlic butter ahead, and mixed the sage right into it.   I formed it into a block and then froze it so I wouldn't have to deal with it at the campsite.    No new potatoes at the grocery when I shopped, so went with some thin skinned yukon golds in small dice.    I used a 13x9 disposable alum pan, covered with foil, over the campfire, and we had them with Brats in a Beer Hot Tub, which are in my favorites post if anyone is interested  :)   No pic, it was too wet and cold and too hard to juggle keeping the fire going and eating a hot meal with digging out the camera and taking pictures      :)     Thank you to Rosie for another winning recipe!
