(Roasted Chicken with Potatoes, Carrots and Lavender)

 

Saint Patrick's Day isn't all about hitting the first open bar at 9 a.m. and then eating lunch sans pants.

 

To me it's a day to celebrate the potato. My cousin and I even have a Saint Patrick's day tradition where we call each other and shout out the names of potato dishes, before we mutually clink the phone with our whiskey glasses.

 

However, as a woman with a whole lot of Irish in her, I always feel guilty laughing at the old John Belushi skit, "Bad Luck of the Irish." Especially when he yells, "Potato famine! Still scares 'em doesn't it!"

 

But, let's not think about that. Instead, let's go through some of my favorite potato dishes that have graced our plates over the past 12 months.

 

 

 

(Blue Potato Chips)

 

(Swiss Chard Quiche with a Potato Crust)

 

(Scalloped Potatoes with Smoked Salt)

 

(Bubble and Squeak)

 

(Mashed Potatoes)

 

(Purple Scalloped Potatoes with Kale)

 

(No-Pistol-Necessary Hash Browns)

 

(Turnip, Potato and Cheddar Gratin)

 

These are some of my favorites over the last year. What are yours?

Great photos! I love the combination of potatoes and chard and am looking forward to trying your swiss chard quiche this summer with some of the chard from my garden. Am happy to discover another VT food blogger!
