    I dont get peoples fascination with French fries, baked potatoes, hash browns.....etc. They do nothing for me. Seems like nothing but empty tasteless calories. Food should be delicious. Potatoes taste like nothing except what you put on them.

    Im sitting in my work cafeteria and the cook just put out French fries and everyone goes apeshit. Reminds me of the seals surrounding your boat after a fishing trip

    Edit: Sweet potatoes are a different story. Im talking about regular potatoes

    Sweet potatoes are full of nutrition, no empty calories there.

    If you eat 3 sweet potatoes a day you’ll get swole. I tell everyone this.

    There are so many ways to make them. I like some good hash browns for breakfast.

    you do know most food is bland and is made to taste better using these things called "other ingredients" right?

    pasta, rice, bread, most things you eat are super bland. and if they aren't, they are packed full of sugar or salt.

    like maybe your mom just throws you a raw potato and says suck on it, and that's your idea of culinary delight, but the rest of the world is way ahead of ya bud.
