At times, I’m a little like the character Bubba Blue in Forrest Gump. But, instead of shrimp, I’m really into potatoes.
I like mashed potatoes, smashed potatoes, baked potatoes, fried potatoes, braised potatoes, potato salad, home fries, hashbrowns, twice-baked potatoes, German fries, and the ultimate french fry.
Yes, now that I’m gluten-free, I could easily buy a potato farm and save money. We eat a lot of potatoes.
Which is why I was really shocked to learn that I didn’t know the secret, easy way to peel a potato. But my brother does. I was telling him that I could eat potatoes at every meal, and then I said, “But, breakfast is difficult. It just takes so long to peel one potato and then about 40 minutes to bake them up in the oven.”
And that’s when he told me the secret. He said, “Well, you know you can boil a pot of potatoes whole, and then the skin slips right off in cold water.”
It does? My jaw dropped.
“Or, you can keep them in the refrigerator for a week with the skins on. Just cut up the boiled potatoes every morning for your home fries and it makes it really easy.”
Well, I’ll be.
