Lemon Chive Potatoes

I am not a fan of boiled potatoes. To me they just seem so...plain and boring. I'm not sure where the inspiration for these came from, but I just threw everything together in a pot and then it was...WOW, these are the most amazing potatoes ever! I highly recommend them.

Please excuse my lack of exact measuring here, but the fun part of cooking is that you don't need to be exact. You can figure it out, I promise.

I used nugget sized white potatoes. They weren't teeny or big, and I just cut them in 1/2 and boiled them in salted water until they were tender. Drain them well, wipe out the pot, and then while everything is still hot, dump the drained potatoes back into the warm, dry pot.

Top them with a nob of butter. What's a nob, you say? Just a spoonful, or enough to coat them. You don't want your potatoes swimming in butter. Then get a lemon and zest that baby right into the pot. Chop up a few green onions really fine and sprinkle them in, then cut the lemon in 1/2 and squeeze the juice over top of the potatoes. Salt and pepper everything to taste, and give the potatoes a stir to coat everything evenly. When you plate them up, make sure everyone has a little of the green onion.
