    I've never really been a fan of the baked potato. Always seems so ... potato-y.

    Rice is nice

    That isn't what she 'said'
    I agree, poppin' a tater in the microwave is plain lazy.
    Taters are rather bland and require some effort to make them
    even somewhat appealing.
    a poor man’s staple

    From wiki:
    China is now the world's largest potato producing country, and nearly a third of the world's potatoes are harvested in China and India. More generally, the geographic shift of potato production has been away from wealthier countries toward lower-income areas of the world, although the degree of this trend is ambiguous.

    Having grown some in the last couple of years, they are better, as most things are, from your garden.

    Few things are as good as gifts from a neighbors garden.

    *nods* *nods* I like 'em well enough, but they can't be the main focus. Gnocchi, potato salad, potato-vege gratin, things like that, I like.

    I've given up. It's just no use.
    Another case of spud abuse.
    What can I say? What can I do?
    Potato bug has got me too.

    Dice'em, spice'em and bake'em.
    Sometimes tossed with balsamic vinaegar and olive oil first.

    In a restaurant I worked at yes. It tastes OK but probably is carcinogenic.

    I prefer home-fries... boil'em, dice'em, add onions and fry'em up on a griddle. Mmm Mmm good!
