These are the potatoes and they are really good
Yesterday I was doing a demo for scalloped potatoes. I served over 900 samples. The potatoes are excellent and taste homemade, plus they’re on sale. I’m not sure how many I sold yet, but I know it was a lot because they had to come and refill my case once.
You can never work fast enough to keep samples out no matter how much you try. Sometimes this gets to be frustrating, but all you can do is get into the rhythm and keep going, making sure you put a new pan of potatoes in the microwave every time you take one out. They take eight minutes to cook.
Of course everyday I meet some interesting people. But I actually didn’t know what to say when a lady asked me if I was serving funeral potatoes. I’ve never ever heard that term before. She went on to explain to me that Mormon ladies make scalloped potatoes for funerals. Hmmm…Of course I’m not Mormon so I didn’t know this.
It was good to learn something new because I love learning things I don’t know and always have been this way. However, I don’t know if I’ll ever look at scalloped potatoes the same way again. I’m sure that conversation will always pop into my head.
It was such a busy day with a never ending line of people so it was good to walk out of the store and to my car parked in the south forty. I didn’t even want to get up out of the seat once I pulled the car into the garage. It felt too darn good to sit down.
