Is It Only Me?

I have the best of intentions... really, I do!  I buy them at the store, envisioning how they will be the easiest side dish to pair with my lovingly home cooked meals.  I even use a few of them while my motivation is high.

And then I forget about them.  Closed away in their recommended dark, cool place.

Until one day... a day like yesterday, perhaps...

I think to myself, "Hmmm.  Scalloped potatoes and ham might be a nice dinner.  And I have potatoes!  And onions!"

 Oh no... How long ago did I buy these?

My onions!  Ack!  Hmmm... maybe I can transplant this to the back garden and grow an onion tree?  Onions grow on trees, right?  :-)

My potatoes!  I'm sorry little guys.

I've tried keeping them in a bag out where I can see them.  I've tried only buying a few at a time, but then I always seem to not have them when I need them.

I need help.  And some easy ways to use potatoes.  I'm serious... if you have any, I'm all ears.  And my potatoes are all eyes.  Bwahahahaha!


  1. hahahaha!!! my kids love mashed potatoes!!
    i just wash cut up and boil--add cream cheese (herb) and butter!! i leave skins on (easier that way) kids don't mind!!

  4. Potato pancakes - shred 'em, mix 'em with flour, a dash of baking powder, a couple of eggs, and fry 'em up!
