The Lowly Potato

When you’re down and feeling low consider, please, the humble potato. Consider with the power of your mind, that, for all its many eyes, it’s blind. And though a starchy carbohydrate have you ever heard one curse its fate? Lastly, to your diet’s envy and unease, it loves bacon, sour cream, and cheese! Yet, what other vegetable can you name has suffered such an indignity of shame? Or been boiled, mashed, baked and fried – just to keep potato lovers satisfied?

I am so hungry for a potato now I can scream! "it loves bacon, sour cream, and cheese!" It is 3:48 a.m. Would it be wrong to fix one? I don't think so.

Those yummy potatoes sacrifice anything to make us happy…sometimes they go all out adorned with all the fixings. ;)
