Tuesday, December 28, 2010 Potatoes A Plenty

I learned something years ago from The Oprah Winfrey Show. When buying potatoes in bulk you never see half a potato. Meaning they all aren't 5 lb bags, some are over, and some are more over than others. So when I saw that box of sweet potatoes for $3.50 I weighed the boxes with my mind before plopping one in the scale that weighed 7 lbs.

I'll take it.

And today at Stop and Shop in Darien the worlds most helpful produce guy guided me to a 10 pound bag of potatoes for 5 bucks. Twice as many potatoes as the 5 lb bag and only one dollar more, he pointed out with great pride in his job.

I'll take it.

Tomorrow I finish the chili, make Ropa Vieja, jerky, chocolate and candied bacon and assemble the sweet potato dream.

Stay tuned.
