We had houseguests over the holiday period, charming people but plump and working on staying that way. So we fed them the sort of food they liked and bought things that haven't been in our house for some years, bread, potatoes, weird snack things and dips. I made potato salad with homemade mayo, and pommes Dauphinois with cream and butter and mashed potatoes with butter and cream (for different meals of course). And I had some of each, just to be polite. Damn, but they were good, I'd forgotten! It took great determination to toss the potatoes that remained after the guests had left, but I did it. Only put on a couple of pounds which will come off quickly now that we're back to our regular WOE.
