I'm a real Irishman, at least when it comes to eating potatoes. Potatoes are incorporated into most every meal. Seriously. I put potatoes in my scrambled eggs. Seriously.
The other week we ran out of potatoes on Friday, so Friday dinner, all of Shabbat and part of Sunday we had no potatoes. Rice, pasta, vegetables, salads yes; potatoes no.
Sunday when dinner still didn't include potatoes Craig remarked with a sour face: "I now know what the Great Potato Famine means."
