Potato digging
We went to dig potatoes again. Do you remember that I posted the potatoes digging last year.
This year my sons did a good job too. And they played around in the field. They found grasshoppers and larvas. Also we got plenty of potatoes.

Next day, I cooked a good number of potatoes. But a lot of potatoes have been leaving in our house. I try to share them with my neighborhoods.

SzélsőFa recommended potatoes recipe. She said she needed sour cream. But we hardly eat any sour cream. Do you usually eat home made sour cream? Maybe her recipe is different of it. LOL But I try to cook it.

Anyway, my older son loves miso soup (bean paste soup) with potatoes. He is a Japanese.

a year has passed - time does fly!!!!

I think it is very very useful to take kids out to the fields. They have to learn where their food comes from. They should not think food grows on shelves of supermarkets....
You are a great mother to do this to your kids Lucy.

I love potatoes too. I think tonight I'm gonna slice some up in nice round slices, cover them and the Pyrex dish in butter and then cook them at 450 degrees F until they are golden brown and then sprinkle some salt on them and have them with my dinner.

Sometimes I use Olive Oil instead of butter, but I think butter actually works better.

Lucy, in Hungary, potatoes are dug out in September-October and stored well until the new ones are available. Like..until May.

Can't you just store them at home (so that you can have a fresh supply all the time?)

Re : sour cream: no, I buy it in shops.
Sour cream is a basic ingredient in Hungarian cuisine. We use it in soups, side dishes, vegetable stews, meats, even into cakes as well.
If there's nothing around to eat, but bread and sour cream, that is a fine evening meal in Hungary (for those who like it!!)

Some peopple can't eat it because it contains some fat.

I like it very much.

Thank you for comments.Yes, a year has passed early. We say old people think a year has passed early. Kids don't think so.
(Do you understand??)

BY the way, Japan is long country.
It depends of regions. IN our region potatoes are dug out on summer. But in north region it might be in your same season.
So we can eat every day fresh potatoes.

I think I do, Lucy.
We don't have a proverb for that, but I keep hearing older people saying how quickly time flies and kids (my onw included) saying how slowly time goes.
I experienced the same when I was a kid, too. :)

thank you. Oh, really?
Today, it is very hot. If I were kid, I would go to outdoor.
I think I am old.
