Stir-Fry Garlic Potatoes

Kaneshiia Lane


I'm from the island of Guam and majority if not all our menus include rice. When my husband (who is a Caucasian from Indiana) and I first started dating I realized that rice was not a common side dish in his household. I had to find some other side dishes that would please him at least to where he wouldn't be eating bread all the time haha. When brain-storming I remembered a side dish my step-mom (half Chamorro/half Caucasian) use to make and said to myself YES that's it. I had no care for the kitchen growing up so I had to improvise. I threw some ingredients together viola a total success.
