One potato, two potato, three potato…four!

I love a good deal.  It doesn’t matter if its on clothes, shoes, furniture, books, or groceries, if its on sale and I think I have a use for it (either now or in the next 5 years), I want it to come home with me.  This sometimes works to my benefit, but then there are the times that I end up with close to 10 lbs of russet potatoes for no good reason except they were ridiculously cheap and I got carried away filling up a flimsy plastic bag while talking on the phone.

So – that leads me to my current dilemma.  I know potatoes last for a long time – which is great because I would get very tired of eating them regularly – but I typically don’t eat very many potatoes or potato-based things so I’d love some ideas on what you’d use them for besides the expected.  Sure, anyone can bake, mash, fry, or roast a potato, but I want to know what you would do.  Would you make gnocchi? Potatoes dauphinois?  Latkes? Scalloped potatoes?

I can’t handle the suspense!

Now, if you’ll excuse me I am going to go make breakfast.  Let’s just say that it may involve potatoes.


One response to “One potato, two potato, three potato…four!

  1. Oh, potatoes! Your basic mash doesn’t do anything for me, but a double stuffed baked potato, or decadent skins, or deep-fried wedges — that’s something else entirely! Not to mention a dozen different ways of making potato salads. I can’t eat potato anymore, but if I could and had a bagful, I’d make a rich cream of potato soup — yum!
