In Honor of Chicken and Rosemary POTATO Pizza This Weekend
This qualifies as a food posting in my rule book due to the fact these are "Potato Heads". It should come as no surprise that my love of food spills over to other parts of my life. My favorite toy of all time is the Potato Head. My children have 2 buckets of them and we play with them all the time. This is of course me on the left.

Potato Heads have come a long way through the years with their new and improved outfits....no longer does Mrs. Potato Head have to settle for plain ol' Mr. Potato Head. She can have her pick of Firefighter Potato Head or Rock Star Potato Head, even Happy Birthday Potato Head. I think Potatoes themselves have come along way too. No longer do we have to settle for lumpy mashed potatoes. We can roast them with herbs and olive oil, we can bake them off and top them with cheese and veggies, we can boil off some baby reds and smash them with a tub of herbed cream cheese. One of my favorite ways to serve mashed potatoes is to stir in some shredded Asiago cheese and a couple of tablespoons of sundried tomato pesto. Potaotes are so good for you, full of potassium. So when you find yourself getting bored with plain ol' Mr. Potato Head go ahead and stir in some pesto, herbed cream cheese or a little asiago and you will find you have rediscovered Mr. Potato Head all over again.
Boy, I must really be hurting for material here!!!
