While I am on the subject of potatoes, I learned recently that potatoes are a remedy for morning sickness! Somehow I never heard of this when I was having my babies, but my daughter in law is dealing with morning sickness and a mutual friend suggested potatoes. She said her midwife told her about them. She said she often ate a baked potato for breakfast in pregnancy. My daugther in law has found this to be helpful.
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. A baked potato is often a first food that I offer to a child who has been sick. It goes down easily and provides some calories and nutrients without being too heavy.
My favorite way to prepare potatoes, if I want something a little more fancy than a baked potato, is to cube the potatoes and toss with olive oil and salt and pepper and bake at 400 till they are beginning to crisp on the outside but are still soft on the inside. When I make these, no matter how many I make, they all get eaten. (And make amazing leftovers for breakfast with some eggs. :)) I am going to make some for my daughter in law tomorrow evening.
