Haters Gonna Hate, Potatoes Gonna Potate

In preparation for this blog I Googled all things potato. Did you know there are a lot of bad potato jokes and a lot of cute potato pictures on the internet? Like this one:


Post-Thanksgiving, we are drowning in potatoes. We bought two 10-pound bags. Why you ask? Because, “THEY WERE SUCH A GOOD DEAL.” Zach was so excited by the sale that he grabbed two bags and I had to talk him out of going back to the store to grab more. Thank goodness, the deal ended before he actually had a chance to go back.

We are two people, on a mission to eat 20 pounds of potatoes. To be fair, we did take some to Friendsgiving, probably like four pounds, and potatoes have a relatively long shelf life, so we can pace ourselves. But still, at the end of the day we have to put away 16 pounds of starchy goodness.

Like, I said, I’ve been Googling a lot and not just adorable Harry Potato pics. I’ve found a couple of great recipes that I want to try this week:

  1. Julie Child’s Potage Parmentier (Potato & Leek Soup)
  2. Vegan Poutine

I have high hopes for both! I’ve always said that potatoes are the best vegetable and will eat them in any form except baked because that’s DISGUSTING. By the end of this #potatochallenge2016, I hope I still love them as much and come out on the other end with some new favorite recipes!

I also plan on hiding the grocery money from Zach from now on. Who knows what he would come home with next …
