|Real fries, anyone?|
Same goes for french fries. Potatoes are cheap. Freezer space is kind of expensive, right? Why buy frozen fries? I would rather eat real fries once every six months than frozen fries once a week. Nothing holds a candle to the real deal.
And can we also talk mashed potatoes? I don't care if instant mashed potatoes are 100% dehydrated potatoes. I really want to know WHY? Unless you're packing all your food supplies to some remote area and weight and shelf life is an issue, you should be eating real potatoes. Real food.
Here's what you need to make instant mashed potatoes: water, pot, packet of instant mashed potatoes and a utensil to stir the resulting "potatoes." Here's what you need to wash up: pot and utensil.
Here's what you need to make REAL mashed potatoes:
water, pot, potatoes and a masher. You don't have to even CUT the potatoes if you don't want to. Here's what you have to wash up: pot and masher.
You choose which one you'd rather eat.
Me? I'm going with a batch of real fries now and then and REAL mashed potatoes, because really. I don't get why you'd do anything else.
