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.
