The potato pieces known as french fries.
I bought potatoes Saturday for 20 cents per pound. These 1970s-90s prices courtesy of a “Saturday Only” sale at our grocery store. But I got home to find a huge bag of potato chips on the counter. Apparently SWMBO found it on sale, too.
The starchy tuber is the world’s fourth-largest food crop; the annual diet of an average global citizen includes about 73 pounds of potato. We think of Ireland and Idaho when we think of potatoes but a third of the world’s taters grow (and are eaten) in China and India.
I know why we have whole potatoes. I like them mashed and baked and fried and in soups and stews. I’m not sure why we have chips. They taste wonderful but I have to run instead of walk in the morning after I eat any and I have to skip dessert.
I hate to run. I really like dessert. Especially dessert with chocolate chips.
The National Health Service in the UK does not count potatoes towards the five portions of the fruit and vegetables diet.
Waiter? I think I’ll have the potato chips and the chocolate chip cookies with my sandwich for lunch.
