It took me 16 minutes and 29 seconds to peel and slice (with a chef's knife, 1/8" thick, give or take 1/16") 3 large potatoes, (total weight 1#6oz) and make the white sauce with which to layer them in a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish. They're ready to come out of the oven now. Guess I'd better slice the ham and prep the broccoli and get the salads made. Supper's in 50 minutes. -- -Barb, <www.jamlady.eboard.com> updated 2-10-04.
