UPDATE UPDATE

Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Ode To Potatoes - Writer's Workshop

Oh Potatoes how I love thee,
let me count the ways...



I love thee baked and soft
with plenty of buttery goodness,
sour cream and cheese to top it off
a meal in itself.

Red or Russet,
big or small,
it matters not to me
wonderful they all are.

I love thee fried
southern style please,
with scrambled eggs
and bacon to boot.

I love thee when you are french fried and salty
with ketchup and mustard,
mixed if you would
or ranch to dunk you in

I love thee in homemade potato soup
such a comfort food,
on a cold fall day,
with melted cheese floating on top
and crusty bread
Oh Potatoes,
how great are you
so filling and versatile
you are my favorite food.

I took this prompt, too! I wrote an "Ode to a Stale Cookie." This was one of my favorite prompts to write for! Now, you've got me craving french fries...yum!

Haha! My sister loves potatoes just as much as you. I call her the "Potato Princess". Too funny.

This is the second post that mentions Fries and now I think I need some. Great poem.

Yes... I love potatoes, too... almost any way. Did you mention potato salad? or mashed... nom, nom... anyway but raw, but wonderful in its starchy goodness. I think I need a trip to the market. Your descriptions just made my mouth water. Great job!
