Potato

Well, Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they called 'Yam. Of course, they wanted the best for Yam. When it was time, they told her about the facts of life. They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of Tater Tots. Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her! But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either. She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her Shoestring cousins. When she went off to Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland; and the greasy guys from France called the French Fries, ... and when she went out west, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped. Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay. Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P. U. (that's Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips. But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw. Tom Brokaw! Mr. and Mrs. Potato were very upset. They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just......Are you ready for this? Are you sure? **OK! Here it is!****

My neice sent me this in an email, and it made me laugh out loud, so I just had to share it with everyone of you. Also, I just spent the last hour making from scratch, home made cannelloni with white sauce. The boys were wanting to know what the white sauce was, so I told them. Then, they wanted to taste it, so I gave them a taste. Forrest took the first taste and made a horrible face, spit it out into the sink and then ran to the bath room the wash his mouth out with bubble gum flavored mouth wash. Nathan approched me with much trepidation, but was coaxed into tasting the sauce. Unfortunately, with the same reaction as Forrest. I tasted it, and I thought it was good. I'm just hoping my husband doesn't have the same reaction as the boys. If he does, I'm putting away my spatula and it will be hamburger helper FOREVER.

That is the official state joke of Idaho. OK I am kidding but we are famous for our potatoes, and that is about it. I appreciate your comments you left on my blog and I totally understand. Thanks for stopping by and being a friend. I am healing but it is going to be a long road so I am just taking it one day at a time. Take care.
