Potatofest 2006: Famine and Feast

The Discovery of the Potato Blight in Ireland
Daniel McDonald
(A family looks in despair over their ruined potato crop.)

Contributions to Potatofest for today:
  • candyinsierras posts a pototo story: Potato Memories.
  • churchpundit praises his wife's mashed potatoes:
    . . . my wife Lisa makes the BEST mashed potatoes, bar none! She's from Alabama, and her mother taught her how to make them, and they are all the rave. Everybody requests them when they come for dinner. Even our kids complain if not quite enough were made. It's simple: mash boiled potatoes (skinned of course); add lots of real butter; add enough milk to make them creamy; lots of ground black pepper, and salt. Whip them up with the electric hand-blender. You'll never go back.
  • A little potato trivia from Kim of Hireath.

If you don't have a blog, or feel you don't want to clutter up your blog with potato drivel, then leave your recipe, joke--you name it--in the comments and I'll work it into a post sometime during the month. Somewhere, somehow, I'll even include things as simple as a comment on your favorite way to eat potatoes, or your favorite variety of potatoes.
