On Monday we were given approximately seventy pounds of local potatoes from some friends.
And we’re determined to eat every last one of them, even if we begin to take on a pasty formless shape with little “eyes” sprouting on our dirty skin. It’ll be like a grand experiment, the anti-Atkins diet. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Monday night we ate baked potatoes with garden chives and Audrey’s homemade butter. Last night we had home fries with green chilies and more garden chives. Dan promised latkas (potato pancakes) this weekend (I’ve heard chives go well with these).
Right now Col’s practicing his knife skills on the rottener potatoes.
Rose, too young to operate a knife, selected the cherry pitter and is using all her two year old power to make sense of it all.
But, we need help, friends. What would you do with 70 pounds of potatoes? Or even a manageable 5? What are your favorite potato dishes? Recipe links?
