NaBloPoMo Day 5: Truth


We try to eat healthy in our home, but I have a confession.

I

Love

Carbs.

Well, not so much bread (although, freshly baked bread straight out of the oven does smell divine!), but I love potatoes. I love roasted potatoes, baked potatoes, scalloped potatoes, grilled potatoes, mashed potatoes, potato latkes, potatoes in soups and in stews...I love potatoes done any way.

I don't know why I love les pommes de terre so much. For some reason, this time of the year I crave potatoes. Isn't it interesting that pomme de terre means apple of the earth in French?

I only cook potatoes twice a week. We do have other carbs at mealtimes (like pasta, couscous, rice, etc). I try to switch things up a bit. This said, I do love my potatoes!

me too!! I LOVE potatoes any way they're made ! I especially love well made latkes but only eat them once a year as they are super duper fattening.
Potatoes is soups and stews are my weakness! Sprinkled with a little salt and butter too are so yummy! Apparantly my grandfather could eat a whole pot of potatoes in one sitting so i come by this love honestly!

I don't think I've ever met a potato I didn't like. Potato chips are probably my favorite, and the worst for you. :) I love french fries, hash browns, baked, broiled, mashed, whatever. I'm looking forward to Hanukkah, and I'm not even Jewish. But we always have latkes anyway. YUM.

Ahhhh! I know :( I feel guilty eating latkes, but I love them so much! LOL! BTW, I still think your Dad makes THE BEST latkes in the world! :)

hi c - when we were in toronto and chicago, we loved potato pancakes (latkes). man, those are so good with sourcream! russian, polish, ukrainian style - we liked it all.

otherwise, i like potato wedges or chunks roasted in olive oil with salt, pepper and paprika.

man, i love most potato dishes, it's so hard to choose!
