    You could scrub red skin potatoes and not peal them at all.

    I have found if you actually get a solid peeler, its not a problem. Peal before cooking is always easier. You just have to avoid the dollar store/Wal Mart kind of peeler, and get a professional one...

    Amazon.com: Oxo Good Grips Swivel Peeler: Home & Garden

    I use that one.

    ooh! i know a recepy too, and its easy to make:

    i dunno the name but apparantly its eastern/central european, and in switzerland they have a variation of em.
    potatoecookies.

    you dont boil em or anything.
    you rasp the raw potatoe and together with chopped onions (really fine chopped) and bacon you fry em in lots of butter.
    you can also leave bacon out and add cheese for a more rosti kinda cookie.
    really nice sidedish or snack.

    its sick.
    Actually, with my current financial problems, I do not buy anything that costs more than .99 a pound.

    You have to watch for savings, many times buy in bulk and freeze, but it can be done.

    Any thin-skinned potatoe is excellent to just scrub and not peal, though I'd recommend organically grown potatoes for this. Less pesticides etc.

    I've often heard that loads (a majority?) of vitamins and valuable nutrients go to waste with pealing potatoes.

    Damn. Hungry again. *robs fridge*

    Too bad, in the U.S. it's significantly cheaper than beef and there are less-lean-but-still-learner-than-beef versions that are even less expensive.

    Also, I just emailed MTripp's recipe to my s.o. and her reply was, "Wtf is this? It looks like something a guy would invent in his college dorm. DID SOMEONE ON THAT MARTIAL ARTS BOARD POST THIS?" Lol!

    Depends on where you live and the time of the year.

    same here.
    but as ive seen loads of crazy stuff on tv bout how amdericans treat their food i reckoned they maybe had crazy ways of having seafood all year round, or whatever.

    there's this show by jamie oliver where he travelled across the usa and showed diff eatng cultures.
    cajun kitchen seems awesome, and also creole.
    sorta overlaps by the looks of it.

    Hey, some of us still haven't evolved past the mac and cheese stage...I consider MTripp's recipe a new advancement for bachelor-kind in the culinary arts.
