I made these for the second time Sunday. Both my husband and I really like them. I am anxious to make them for my mother when my parents visit us the next time because I remember she preferred steak fries to french fries at Bonanza.  I did modify the recipe  to use only two potatoes for just the two of us.  But I will post the original recipe and then comment on my adjustments.

I got the following recipe from Taste of Home.

4 potatoes (2 pounds)
2 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cut each potato lengthwise in half. Cut each half into three wedges. In a large bowl, sprinkle potatoes with oil; toss to coat. Combine the remaining ingredients. Add to potatoes; toss to coat.

Arrange potatoes in a single layer on a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with any remaining coating. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown and tender.

Blissful Potato Wedges – My version of recipe for the two of us.

Cut two potatoes lengthwise and then cut slices to your preferred thickness. 
I managed to get 16 slices per potato. 
In large bowl sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and toss. 
The amount of amount of oil will vary dependent on number of slices.
In a separate bowl mix up 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese,
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
and 1 teaspoon of chicken seasoning (to replace basil and salt and pepper).
Add this mixture to potato wedges and toss to coat.
Arrange in single layer on baking pan.
Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes.

1 ham steak cubed
2 cups frozen corn
add a little water
microwave about 8 minutes

I wanted something simple and quick for supper.
The salt of the ham helps flavor the corn nicely.

It’s just two of us here, hubby and myself.
We used it as our evening meal but think
others may use it more as a vegetable sidedish.

The fact is I twisted my knee earlier today.
So I did want anything that took too much work.
I diced the ham and hubby did the microwaving.
