The Lowly Potato

This reminds me of Carmen Miranda's hat, only the veggie version. It was a good, if strange, pickup meal to clean the fridge before we left for the East coast.

Baked potato, buttered, and topped with peas, wilted garlic Swiss chard and shreds of the rubbed ham ribs left over from a previous meal. This is how you stretch too few ribs into a meal. Oh, well, it's trendy to use meat more as a flavoring than as a main attraction, so I guess I'm in with the In Crowd this week.

It was surprisingly good.

All we are saying is give peas a chance...;)

OK, putting coffee cup down carefully and trying not choke with laughter. Very clever, Greg - as clever as Zoomie's inventive use of food.

I can hardly SEE the lowly potato! What a health bomb! Sounds good, and probably really funny to eat.

Where did you get fresh peas?

A very Irish meal - they love to put stuff (or nothing but butter) on 'jacket' potatoes for a meal. Isn't it nice to be 'in'! (or so I've heard)

Greg, what NamasteNancy said!

Nancy, that Greg! He's a card!

Cookiecrumb, we even ate the skins.

Chilebrown, in the freezer.

KatieZ, genes will tell. :-)

YES! «Louis» sees a VERY strong resemblance to Carmen Miranda's hat! So strong, he had to check to see if he was on the right blog!
