Patriotic Potatoes! Red, White and Blue for a Fourth of July BBQ

Last night I planned to grill steaks for dinner, served with a side salad and my favorite way to grill potatoes;  lots of olive oil, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper.  It was another busy week night however and It ended up being just 2 of us home for dinner.  I still followed my planned menu, but it explains why there are so few potatoes in my photo!

Idea for this Fourth of July holiday;  red, white and blue potatoes!  You can find these potatoes at most larger (and some small) groceries.  While the blue are more difficult to find, the red and white are readily available and I've found blue to be more popular now than ever before.  

At my local Super Walmart they made it easy for me;  Tasteful Selections has bagged all three for me and sells them in a 40 oz. package called "Sunrise Medley".   They were about $3.50 for the entire bag, which serves about 6 people.   Having a backyard get-together this 4th of July?  Surprise your guests with patriotic potatoes!
