I always make a huge pile of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving day. It's really my favorite leftover. In our family we turn them into mashed potato patties. Add a little egg, maybe some curry, green onion tops, cheese, some bacon bits, your heart's desire . . . then dust with flour and saute in butter until golden brown. Vincent captured my peasant ancestors enjoying this simple pleasure years ago.
Okay, that's a fib. The part about Vincent capturing my ancestors consuming leftover potatoes, that is.
The truth is, however, it's beginning to look a lot like LEFTOVER SEASON. And I'll be announcing our second annual LEFTOVER print exchange very soon. Bon appetit!
