Eyes that cannot see
But if they could, would see dirt,
Then my frying pan
mockery in the world ever sounds to me as hollow as that of being
to 'cultivate' happiness ... Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in
mould, and tilled with manure." - Charlotte Bronte (via
astute listeners Vicki and Flawn)
potato ideas from our listeners:
suggests: Mix leftover mashed potatoes with egg, grated cheddar
cheese, parsley, a pinch of nutmeg, some chili flakes, and a little bit
of flour to bind. Form balls, roll them in matzoh meal or bread crumbs,
and deep fry.
suggests: If you peel potatoes for your recipe, save the peels
for soup stocks. If you're not making the stock right away, freeze
them for your next batch.
Stillman suggests: Make twice-baked yams in the same way you'd
make twice-baked potatoes: bake them at 400 until just cooked, halve them,
scoop them out and mash the insides with butter and other ingredients,
then refill the skins and bake them at 350 to reheat. With regular
potatoes you might make the filling with some combination of cheese, sour
cream, green onion, sauteed mushrooms, garlic, etc. For twice-baked
sweet potatoes, Laura suggests mashing them with butter, brown sugar, salt,
pepper, and dark rum.
