One Potato-two Potato
I love potatoes and felt the urge to share. So, to start out my wonderful lens, I have the following diddy to share.
I love potatoes.
I love them whipped.
I love them mashed.
If they are served aggruaten
then I lack for nothen...
If they are cheesy
the more the better
My potato has been taken to the letter
Puff it up, fluff it up
Bake it up, make it up
What could you possibly do wrong
With a potato
You can slice it, dice it,
Shread it, bread it,
Stuff it, ruff it, its tuff!
Skin it or nought
They say years ago there was a phamon
I say how could that have been
Could such a thing be put on a potato
with all those eyes, could it not see it coming?
There are patties
There are soups
and there are paste,
You can blend it with other veggies
You can use it as a base
You will probably lose some of it texture
and most likely some of its taste
The Irish are the masters of the potato, they have made it for what it stands
They make, I hear, a wiskey that will knock off your socks
But I say why mess with it
I love it as it is
Clean it, peal it and for me I like it mashed
but then again, I do love hash!
Now, I think you get my meaning
about how versible the tater can be
so with this lens I am declaring, today tater day.
Why did the potato cross the road?
He saw a fork up ahead.
Flowering Potato Plant
Why didn’t the mother potato want her daughter to marry the famous newscaster? Because he was a commentator.
The Potato Is One Of My Favorite Vegs.
Do You Think The Potato Is An Important Food Source?
Yes, a baked potato makes for a good lunch item.
The Most Important Thing
The potato is full of nutrients: Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B6 and traces of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Niacin, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Iron and Zinc. The fiber of the potato, with skin, is equivalent to that of many whole grains. It is a carbohydrate, containing 26 grams in a medium potato. One medium potato has about 164 calories (without topping).
Louisa May Alcott Quote
"Money is the root of all evil, and
yet it is such a useful root that
we cannot get on without it any more
than we can without potatoes."
The Spud Has It

Anything, just butter him up.

Funny in what you think you remember. When I saw this movie, I just loved the scene with the dancing bread, but I thought it was potatoes he used. In any case, it is cute and I have included it here.

Chip Off The Old Potato
Don't forget that old standby of decorating paper with a cut-out potato stamp. Great to keep the kids busy on a rainy day; birthday and Christmas paper.
