Roast potatoes with red onion and thyme

Busy month this one! I wonder if I will manage to post every day like I did last December! Anyway, I have a lot of Xmas decoration ideas to publish and recipes too, this is a good one for the roast potato side dish (to accompany a Xmas roast, nut or other!). 

Cut the potatoes in small cubes. Chop one or two red onions, and some good olive oil and mix.
Place on an oven try lined with baking paper and sprinkle with salt. Bake on high for about 30-40 minutes, shaking the potatoes from time to time (I do this by lifting the baking paper). When the potatoes are ready add a few thyme sprigs and mix well (I like to add the thyme at the end, it will smell lovely!). I also like to use thyme with red onion, but sage could be a good alternative.

The kids have been busy with end of the year's performances, both had piano concerts at school, and then Arantxa had two dance shows (with lots of rehearsals!) and Max an ukelele festival. This Sunday they will perform in a play (Pinocchio) at the Dante Alighieri Italian society's Xmas party, you are welcome to come along!

Have a great weekend!
