No Potato Left Behind
Don't get me started on the stupid system that is NCLB (No Child Left Behind)...but let's discuss my non-political take on it, NPLB- No Potato Left Behind. So, Mr. Pie decided he would go to the store on Sunday and pick up the best baking potatoes you could find. He didn't just buy the 3 we needed for that night- no, he picked up an ENTIRE paper bag full of them (I'd say about...10 or 12 of them). So I was stuck in a rut and seeing as potatoes tend to go bad in this apartment of ours rather quickly (why, I don't know!), I made good use of them. I suppose I could have made a potato salad, but I didn't think of that *Smacks hand to forehead*- DOH!
So Monday night, I decided to make mashed potatoes along with a meatloaf. That took care of most of the potatoes, and was enough to leave for leftovers til Wednesday. Wednesday night I took the last three potatoes and baked them, because I was feeling rather lazy.
So by Wednesday night, I had used up all of the potatoes Mr. Pie decided to pick up. We generally have a rule of No (food item inserted here) Left Behind, as we know what it's like to go without.
