How do you take your potatoes?

Thanksgiving potatoes

When I checked my email this morning, before my eyes were focusing well, I thought my Downey Daily Photos email said "Downey Daily Potatoes." That started me thinking (and not just about my eyes) ...

This coming Thursday is Thanksgiving in the United States, and potatoes are an important part of the traditional Thanksgiving meal. (For me, they're the most important part, since I'm not crazy about turkey.) Our traditional meal includes mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, and sweet potatoes. If you Google "mashed potato recipes," you'll get over 8 million results, and over 5,000 how-to videos.

No wonder the potato bins at the grocery store were nearly empty this weekend.
