Hello. My name is PotatoHouse and I am a _______ addict.

Cheese is a constant no matter the season :)

Summertime: can't stop eating little grape tomatoes. Some manage to make it into the dish I'm preparing but there are never any leftovers.

What is the name of that orange?!!

A Clementine? They hit the stores during winter time.

☺Supermarket scavenger hunts: "Why'd they put it THERE?"☺

Having not bought any Velveeta for years I was surprised to find it in the refrigerated dairy section. By the real cheese. I always thought that "cheese food" was only refrigerated *after* opening? Or for that matter, could probably survive most anywhere for a good while.
I kinda thought it would be over by the shelf-stable mac & cheese?

What's Your Favorite Potato Dish?

Salt-cooked Red Creamer Potatoes. Outside is crispy & salty, inside is so moist. So simple!

Way we do this is pour about an inch or so of Kosher salt into our cast-iron skillet, nestle the little guys into the salt and bake uncovered until done.

What new food(s) have you tried recently and how was it?

Agree with the Cracked Pepper Olive Oil Triscuit. OK, but seemed to have extra flavor dusting (?) on them. Still a huge fan of the Rye Triscuits.

favorite bottled salad dressings?!?

Farmer Boy's Greek dressing is great as a dressing and a marinade for grilled chicken. Not sure it's carried outside of Florida - link is below:

When do you correct incorrect pronunciation?

Or "nucular". But I would never correct anyone because the mispronunciation is so common.
