Mike agreed to make mashed potatoes, "but you have to peel them," he said.
"Are you serious?" I replied. "I love peeling potatoes!"
It's true. Little known Amy fact: I like peeling produce - potatoes, carrots, mangoes, cucumbers... you name it. I remember when I was young and my mom got an apple peeler. That thing was the coolest. It did most of the work for you, but I loved how it peeled an apple into long, curly spirals.
"Are you serious?" Mike responded. "I hate peeling potatoes. That's the only reason I don't make mashed potatoes more often."
"Well this is a win-win situation," I said. "I'll peel them, you make 'em."
And that's our deal. This household's mashed potato intake just increased ten-fold. And that is awesome, because my man makes some damn good mashed potatoes.
