Taking stock of my potato sack stored in a dark kitchen cabinet, I can see I barely have enough of the home grown ones for Christmas day. Now I'm thinking roasties or mash? And I may need to buy extra.
I think Irish and British generally have roast potatoes on Christmas day and Americans often have mashed potatoes. I love both. I haven't decided which to have. Do you have roast potatoes or mash on Christmas?
I can also see my potatoes are just starting to send up little shoots which isn't bad since they have been in storage since October.
