30-Week Blog Challenge Week 16: A Favorite Food

I'm back with the Monday blog challenge! The lady in charge is Marie at Mom Gets Real. The questions are right here:


And Week 16's prompt is . . .


I could name a ton, but there's probably a reason this calls for "a favorite food" rather than "all the awesome foods you like putting in your mouth." 'Cause maybe we'd be here all day.

So let me share with you my love of potatoes.

Mmm, vegetarian shepherd's pie!
Potatoes are super great. They can become the topping on a shepherd's pie for a main dish, and they can appear as a filling main course or side dish in various ways still in their skins. You can make stuffed dinner jacket potatoes with gravy and mushrooms, or mix them with seitan and make a "meat" and potatoes stew, or use them in a dough to make dumplings. You can make Irish potato bread with them, or you can use them in pancake mixes to create latkes or farls. You can even make mashed potato soup!

Potatoes can dress down, too. You can make hash browns or french fries. You can make au gratin potatoes. You can even buy the instant version and they're really not bad.

Potatoes are awesome!

For the curious, here's my full favorite foods list. :)
