Locked Inside Your Heart Shaped Potato*

>> Thursday, December 20, 2007

Today was my first time using my super cool new potato shaper. It's somewhat similar to an egg mold but much more difficult to find outside of Japan. I bought mine off eBay for $27.99 plus $12.00 for shipping! For a nicely formed potato just boil a 50 gram Yukon Gold until perfectly cooked. Call the children into the kitchen and show 'em how the real game of Hot Potato is played. This should take about 3 minutes. (first child in tears is the loser) Insert the still steaming, but slightly less hot potato into the shaper and submerge in ice water for 13 minutes and 27 seconds. Remove and trim the edges with an uber sharp knife. When the bleeding's under control you can then color your potato with purple food markers as in the picture below.

1. sliced red and white baby potatoes
2. purple heart shaped potato
3. mini red bell peppers
4. Trader Joe's Mediterranean hummus
5. baby carrots

Yeah, I made all that potato shaper stuff up. Partly from frustration with my stupid egg molds, partly excitement over Christmas vacation. Yay! No more work 'till 2008. Take that you bitches! Yeah, pretty excited. Sorry about that.
