HOW TO......

Simon's little noggin was apparently working overtime yesterday. He yapped another idea to me while lying in bed watching TV last night. He thought that some "How To" posts might be interesting. I told him to go to sleep and we'd discuss it in the morning.

Well, that idea started rolling around in my noggin and I thought, heck, let's give it a try. So, here's one that is not only a how-to, but an opportunity to see Marianne from Gilligan's Island. I think her technique might only be worth it when lots of potatoes need to be peeled. I certainly wouldn't go through that for just 3 or 4.



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!

LOL! YNBs! actually-I'm a pretty lazy cook and hadn't heard of that one-anything to cut down time spent in kitchen is great by me!
And boy- I have to say- "Marianne" looks great!

Tell Simon good job! and another 2 paws up for this idea!

Enjoy your weekend!:-)

Neither had I...that's why I posted it. She does look good, doesn't she. Although, I don't know how old this video is.

Ahhhh nostalgia. Though I think it's easier to peel a potatoe if you are just playing Cooking Mama on the Wii.

that was pretty cool, but i love the potato skins, so i usually leave them on.

by the way, will the potato be completely cooked after just 15 minutes? if not, i wonder what will happen to the texture once it's been plunged in ice water and then thrown back into the boiling water. dammit, these are questions i need answers to! will someone please go boil a potato and let me know. i don't feel like washing pots and bowls.

That's a lot of effort. Just get your kids to do it with a dull knife.

yorksnbeans said...

VOG....does the Wii actually have a game for that?

yorksnbeans said...

Nonnie....very good questions!! I think an email to Marianne is in order.

yorksnbeans said...

Hi Betty!! Nice to meet you. Thank you for stopping in. I'll stop by your place and visit!

VoiceoftheGods said...

Yeah actually there are 3 Cooking Mama games now. You peel and slice and season to cook meals.

We don't have a Wii but it certainly sounds like a fun thing to have. I bet it could pull be away from this!! :-)

You don't peel a potato...the skin is the best part...geeezzz Maryann, no wonder the Professor ran off with Ginger...

I wonder if she considers working a puppet a step up or down from working with Gilligan

alantru said...

Hah! Mr. Mills... How your crabby old ways amuse us...

"The professor couldn’t grow a good potato"? How about the professor couldn’t fix a boat to get them off the island!

"The professor was a hunk"? Jim Backus was the looker!

Still, these miscues aside, the career of Dawn Wells is in fine shape. She just needs to get over the professor and work with a puppet that can talk.
