  1. Totally agree with you guys about potatoes being maligned for no good reason! I am such a fan of sweet potatoes, but white ones as well. My husband and daughter don’t like the white potatoes as much as I do, so I don’t tend to make them as often as I would like, but I like Joy’s salad and potato meal idea!

  2. This was a great episode. I am grateful for your podcast recommendations!

    1. Joy – We are big into potatoes of all varieties, too, and share your love of “salad and potatoes” for dinner. I have recently discovered a condiment pairing that is revelatory on a baked white potato — Chimmichurri . Spice Islands had a dried version that we mix up with olive oil and a splish of cider- or honey-vinegar. It’s ridiculous.

    2. Marisa – yes to everything about Passover. Sleep easy knowing you’re not the only terrible Jew. This year I couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to host the Seder so we had a Saturday afternoon “Seder Snacks” party with the essentials: haroses, matzo, moror, and macaroons! Our family does the jarred gefilte fish, too (and I like it. Once a year.), and my lapsed-Catholic husband won’t touch it.

    3. Marisa, the way you articulate that it feels good to receive praise for a job well done on the brisket really struck home with me. I happily host thanksgiving for 15-20 people every year, and I feel like I *crush* that meal. But I struggle with accepting praise. I like your attitude about it and will try to adopt that going forward.

    1. Lindsay, I am so glad to hear that I’m not the only one! And I totally love your idea of a Seder Snacks party. I’m totally going to steal that someday. And you should embrace the praise you get for putting on an awesome Thanksgiving. Just say thank you! 🙂
