Here are this week’s four questions. They’re about potatoes.
#1. Potato Chips. What kind of chips are your favorite?
I rarely eat potato chips anymore. My favorite kind, though, would be kettle chips.
#2. What’s your favorite thing to dip chips in?
For potato chips it would be French Onion Dip.
#3. What’s your favorite way to eat a baked potato?
My favorite way in a restaurant would be with everything on it. At home, I usually have it with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. That’s really good, too.
#4. How do you make mashed potatoes?
I don’t make them the traditional way. I used to microwave the potatoes first, but now that my doctor says not to microwave foods, I’m thinking about steaming them first and, if I’m using organic potatoes, then use the skins too. There was a restaurant that had delicious mashed potatoes that included the potato skins. So that’s how I’m planning on making them. (The reason that I don’t want to boil them is that most of the vitamins end up in the water that is poured off.)
I’ve never had olive oil on my potatoes but now I’m going to try it.
I’m looking for ways to cut down on cholesterol, so using an olive oil instead of butter would certainly be a plus.
I totally forgot about kettle chips. My favorite chips are ones you get at a festival where they are making them right out where everyone can watch.

I like to boil potatoes, mash them in little heaps on a pan, drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle on some spices, then bake them until they are crispy. Yumm.
Steaming sounds like a good idea, I’m going to have to try that.
DeeBee, I hope you like the olive oil. We really like it, and it’s so healthy!
Lynne, cutting down on cholesterol is the reason we starting using olive oil. Then we got to where we preferred it!
Karen, those festival kettle chips are so good. It’s a good thing I’m not around those much!
Corrin, that sounds so yummy! I’ll steam the pototoes, drizzle, and bake.
I used to steam a lot, then I didn’t and used the microwave a lot, but now I’m back to steaming since my doctor said not to microwave foods.
