  • my own. I find peeling potatoes VERY relaxing/soothing. Sometimes if my husband knows I am freaking out over something he'll bring a 20 pound sack of spuds. :)

  • I would never buy boxed potatoes. Yuck! My husband made me the most amazing twice baked potatoes last week and now I'm craving those.

  • I thought the instant stuff was only used for making on-stage snow flakes.

  • I've had a couple of boxed ones that were ok, but making them is sooo much better.

  • I love to make my own, but if I'm really short on time, then I will use the box kind. I've found the best brand to use, and the best way to fix them to make them taste almost exactly like homemade mashed potatoes!

  • Only real, whole potatoes. I refuse to buy the instant crap unless someone in the house has had a surgery or dental issues making it hard to eat my real potatoes.
