Potatoes, Fried Home Style Recipe

Potatoes, Fried Home Style

This recipe is similar to the way my Father would cook potatoes on a Sunday morning. I added the Bell Peppers. If it was good weather, we would cook outdoors on our open fireplace. The wood smoke would add a great flavor, as it does to everything. Bacon, eggs, and pancakes were awesome, when cooked outdoors. A pot of coffee, keeping warm, beside the fire. Boy, did I ever have a great childhood. It brings tears to my eyes, just thinking about it.
