Potato Talk

Mmmm... First post in 2009 and I'm talking about Potato? Nope, this has nothing to do with Couch Potato. :p

Nothing to do with my dying Potato Plant either, which had already RIP :(

But my favourite potato snacks, presenting...

Lay's Potato Chips. (Used to like Pringles in the past, but that was way back in the past = in the early 90's).

And the Pik-Nik Shoestring potato crisps (original flavour) :)

p/s: Potato, u are still the best, if not the best-est. :)

Pringles in market not nice anymore because they are locally made.. imported from USA are more expensive, and heard that it causes cancer!!!

I love crisps (that's what they call potato chips here), but rarely eat these days... wanna be healthy mah, hor?

but... I cave in... once in a blue moon... (I think the moon might turn blue tomorrow)

SK,
The locally made pringles taste horrid. I tried the US pringles last year (which is also available in the market, but more expensive), but somehow the taste is different and it doesn't taste as nice as compared to the pringles i had in the past. :)

may,
Yeah, tomorrow the moon will be blue. Hehehehe...

Talking about potato chips or crisps, made me feel like eating the McD curly fries tim... but oily and unhealthy woh.. But the curly fries only available once a year. Dun care lah.. Sapu :D

Times are bad, I must learn to fry my own potato chips. Then mix with Thai Chilly sauce, very yummy too. No cancer this way, SK Thamby.

Hi, hopped over from Sarawakiana's. Like the potato's pix, not the chips! I love potato in its original way - boil in a pot of goodness, mashed and baked ... It's not quite heavenly, but quote Oprah Winfrey

My idea of heaven is a great big baked potato and someone to share it with.

Have a great potato weekend, yes, almost!

ck lam said...

Who could resist potato? I find it best as in baked potato, wedges and of course cooking it the chinese way...stewing with meat.

Chen said...

day dreamer,
Must be yummy.

I haven't have home made mashed potato for quite a while already, at least more than half a year :)

michelle,
Err... how about taking the easier way.. and buy the whipped potato from the fast food outlet? :P

ehon,
15 years ago (during my uni days), I used to have pringles every now and then. I always stocked up pringles in my room, but those were the days :)

Chen said...

wyn,
The piknik shoestring potato crisps r indeed cute & delicious. I tried both the original (50% less salt) & the chili lime. I dislikes the chili lime flavour (taste weird), but loves the ori flavour :)

misti,
I bought that from Cold Storage. It's US product. In fact I bought two cans (113 g/ 4 oz) when I did my groceries in Cold Storage today ;)

Wah, thought of me when seeing prosperity burger ah? I felt so touched... *Sob* Talk about prosperity burger hoh, I only had it once this year. Time to have another one again before the McD prosperity period ends. CNY is just around the corner mah ;)

fibrate,
Hehe, I didn't know u r an egg person. My hubby loves eggs & potatoes too :)

Chen said...

yanz,
Thanks for dropping by :)
In fact, most potato products r delicious. But the unhealthy one r more yummy. LOL

Twilight zone,
Thanks for dropping by :)

The non oily way to made potato chips or french fries is to cook it using micro waves. But of course not as delicious as those deep fried inside a pan of oil wan.. ;)

yan,
Thanks for dropping by :)

I love eating the boiled potato too. Used to have it in the past. It's fun to peel the potato skin and dip it into tomato ketchup or chili sauce :)

ck lam,
I love potatoes. In fact, when eating curry, I'm happy with just eating the potatoes inside the curry, instead of the chicken or beef or mutton. Hehehe..

chicken said...
