Potato, Potahto!

A few days ago, I was cooking with my nieces and nephews and decided to finally try out the purple potatoes that I had picked up from the market the week before. That's right: PURPLE potatoes! I only wish I'd thought of it in time to do something fun for Valentine's Day. How perfect that would have been.

I was cooking for a group of kids and we decided to make Scalloped Potatoes. The kids were apprehensive at first, but couldn't resist trying this colorful concoction. It was a hit! And it was so easy to make. The color made it fun for the kids to try something new. It kind of reminds me of when they started putting that colored ketchup out on the market, only I think this is a much better idea!
