You didn't know what to do with potatoes?

You had to enter a contest to find out?

My dear, why didn't you ask me?

;)

Congrats!

well done Minx. Like I said on skint's blog, it really isn't a surprise.

It was a well-deserved win, Minx, for a brilliant bit of very poignant story-telling!
And by the way, potatoes ain't just for eating - they make great missiles and you can making pretty print thingies with them too...

Marie said...

Well done!

Sharon J said...

Is it "100 ways to add eyes, glasses, noses and moustaches to potatoes"? I have a copy and it's very good. You'll enjoy it.

Lee said...

Sharon, you're not suggesting Minx is a potato head, are you?

verilion said...

Hey that's great news Minx and do you think you'll be sharing some of those tattie receipes with us?

Sian Lewis said...

Congrats on a well-deserved win!

Minx said...

Well, what can I say. It was a surprise to me Saaleha, I never win anything!!

And that would be 'Mrs Potato Head' Lee and yes, as usual I will sharing all my wonderful culinary delights with you. Bet you can't wait!

I love potatoes but sharon J above suggests it might a fun Mr Potato Head book. If so.... then here's the basis to the best mash ever.

Boil potatoes (some tattie types are better than others for mash) and then use an electric mixer to mash them with lots of butter and salt and lots of pepper. No milk. You could cook up a couple of carrots until soft and add them to the mash as you mash. Or any other veggie - parsnip is well wicked :-) Leeks work well too!

Minx said...

Sorry Doris, I didn't understand a word of that...what do you mean by 'boil'??

Doris said...

Think witches cauldron! ;-)

Minx said...

Oh no Doris, we only ever 'simmer'!!
