Do you cook more potatoes or pasta in your house?

I think lately I've made more potatoes since they can be prepared in so many different ways from whipped, to mashed, to baked, to boiled and of course the delicious french frie.
We used to be big on pasta with sauce though. I've actually cut back on making it lately.

  • I used to make more potatoes, but I've been trying to eat more whole grains, so now it's more whole wheat pasta or brown rice. I miss baked, mashed, and au grautin potatoes though!!

  • We try to rotate all starches on a regular basis at dinnertime. Keeps us from getting too bored too.

  • My fiance does the cooking, and he favors pasta. I'm okay with pasta (even though right now, marinara sauce makes me want to barf), but I LOVE potatoes! If it was up to me, I'd eat potatoes every day. Especially cut into slices, fried in a pan and covered in mayonnaise, mmmmm.... (yes, I know this grosses most Americans out, it's a European thing).

  • Pasta. I don't like potatoes very much, so I never think of them on my own.
