So this week I chose potatoes. I like potatoes pretty much any way you can serve them. Mashed potatoes for me are the perfect comfort food. When I wasn't well my mother in law always made mashed potatoes for me. Always! God love her..
Every week I share with the husband what is going to be on the menu and ask him if there is anything in particular he'd like to have. Well this week was no different. His suggestion was potato salad. My absolute least favorite potato dish.. But, he offered up a suggestion and I want to respect that. So I made a very basic potato salad. Oddly he loved it. He ate several servings and complimented it more than once. Even I enjoyed it

If I'm asked which is my least favorite cuisine I'd have to say stereotypical English food. The boring, bland mostly boiled or greasy fried food that probably explains why some English citizens come off as.... emotionally constipated. Before you all feel compelled to come to the defense of the English, I never said that England isn't cool. Doctor Who, Monty Python, Mary Poppins, Harry Potter, Led Zeppelin, and that articulate moto named Shakespeare...all cool. Food wise, okay Cadbury and the Good Humour guy. It wasn't until the 1980's that an English chef earned a Micheline star. So there. And well done Marco Pierre White! By the way, look up photos of Marco Pierre White from back in the day, he was not too shabby. Anyway, I think that the English pretty much knew that their food sucks so they came up with silly names based on innuendo and flatulence. Oh, and false hope. There's spotted dick, bangers and mash, bubble and squeak...you get the picture. It took an English woman living in Paris to compel me to give bangers and mash another try. No, they are still boring...but the gravy! Oh la la!
So here's my contribution to the humble potato, it's still humble just dressed up a bit.
