Steamed potatoes

This was super easy and good

a few potatoes
1 sweet potato
chives and basil from the garden.  and/or dill and/or cilantro (this time of year, chives and basil).
1 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh squeezed) (optional)
2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)

If the potatoes are new and the skin looks tender enough, don't bother to peel them.  otherwise peel and cut into bite-sized pieces.  same with sweet potato.  Steam the potatoes for 5 minutes.  add in the sweet potatoes for another 10 minutes.    chop the herb, mix with the lemon juice and maple syrup.  Add to potatoes when finished.   if you are watching the sweets, just use 1 Tbsp of maple syrup, or none at all.  This is great cold as leftovers---then you call it potato salad!
