A few nights ago, my wife tried a new recipe for potato soup. The result: Let's just say the recipe will be in our family for years to come. There's nothing better than a hot soup on a cold day to warm your bones.
Here's something you might not know. According to The Amazing Book of Useless Information, "When potatoes first appeared in Europe in the seventeenth century, it was thought that they were disgusting, and they were blamed for starting outbreaks of leprosy and syphilis. As late as 1720 in America, eating potatoes was believed to shorten a person's life."
Just in case you're wondering, I have no medical issues to report days after consuming the potato soup. I'm not sure about life expectancy but I really feel fine.
Have a great day. And if you get a chance, eat a potato.
