Little Miss Muffett
Sat on a tuffett
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider
And sat down beside her
And said: "What's in the bowl, bitch?

@eurocelticyankee,
Hmm, I don't know what 7.59 is, but I'll believe you on watching it.

@ossobuco,
Around 5 is normal, safe.

7.59 as my doc put it to me is "Drop dead all of a sudden territory".

That's, Shock and Awe, for you. Shocked

Now there's a bizarre statement!

Bethie - Becel - puh-lease! What's the point of having mashed taters if you don't butter them. It's probably illegal and certainly immoral!

@Setanta,
I managed to erase the first part of my post, will wait until I gather some more steam to post on my making fish cakes this afternoon to freeze for the odd breakfast.
(oh, well: yukon golds mashed, mashed sardines in oil, perhaps a couple of anchovies, some diced pre roasted garlic, some chopped parsley and scallions, black pepper, sl. chile pepper, sl. turmeric, bread crumbs.)

But, after that, using the same water, I'm making this:

from http://runningwithtweezers.typepad.com/

Mustard-Horseradish Potato Salad - serves 4 to 6 as a side dish

1 pound small new potatoes, skins washed and cut into even halves or quarters - you want your potato pieces to be even so they cook evenly
2 tsp. good quality extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons good quality stone ground mustard
20 cornichons, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons freshly chopped chives - feel free to substitute any other herb you'd like
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, mustard and horseradish. Set aside until potatoes are cooked and cooled slightly.

- Place cut potatoes in a large stockpot and cover with cold water so that the potatoes are covered by an inch of water. Salt the water and bring the pot to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 7-8 minutes. Once they're fork tender, drain and place in a large mixing bowl. Allow them to cool slightly and toss with the mustard/horseradish mixture while still slightly warm - this will let them absorb some of the dressing. Gently fold in the cornichons, fresh herbs, and salt & pepper the potato salad to taste. Serve immediately. If you chill this potato salad, bring to room temperature, drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil to re-wet the mixture, mix thoroughly and serve.

No more boiling and mashing for me.

Don't Slay That Potato
By Tom Paxton

How can you do it? It's heartless, it's cruel.
It's murder, cold-blooded, it's gross.
To slay a poor vegetable just for your stew
Or to serve with some cheese sauce on toast.
Have you no decency? Have you no shame?
Have you no conscience, you cad,
To rip that poor vegetable out of the earth
Away from its poor mom and dad?
CHORUS:
Oh, no, don't slay that potato!
Let us be merciful, please.
Don't boil it or fry it, don't even freeze-dry it.
Don't slice it or flake it.
For God's sake, don't bake it!
Don't shed the poor blood
Of this poor helpless spud.
That's the worst kind of thing you could do.
Oh, no, don't slay that potato
What never done nothing to you.

Why not try picking on something your size
Instead of some carrot or bean?
The peas are all trembling there in their pod
Just because you're so vicious and mean.
How would you like to be grabbed by your hair
And ruthlessly yanked from your bed
And have done to you God knows what horrible things,
To be eaten with full-fiber bread?
(CHORUS)
It's no bed of roses, this vegetable life.
You're basically stuck in the mud.
You don't get around much. You don't see the sights
When you're a carrot or celery or spud.
You're helpless when somebody's flea-bitten dog
Takes a notion to pause for relief.
Then somebody picks you and cleans you and eats you
And causes you nothing but grief.
(CHORUS)
There ought to be some way of saving our skins.
They ought to be passing a law.
Just show anybody a cute little lamb
And they'll all stand around and go "Aw!"
Well, potatoes are ugly. Potatoes are plain.
We're wrinkled and lumpy to boot.
But give me a break, kid. Do you mean to say
That you'll eat us because we're not cute?
(CHORUS
