is this acceptable?
i'm not in the mood for this peeling nonsense.
off peeling them. I think that's what they're called.
Anyway it's okay, they don't put pesticide on potatos.. yet.
she did have a spell in a mental hospital, mind

but don't completely mash them, call them 'crushed' and charge 4.50 for the pleasure a la restaurants.
but seriously, yes it's fine fine fine and much better for you.

i have more than Â£1 to my name, i may try that. hurrah.
i'm dining off cottage pie for the next 3 days.
make sure you don't put the leek in too early though - unless your making gravy too in which case put the leek in at the start and use the water from the potatoes to make the gravy with
I have my mother to thank for these culinary morsels - she couldn't cook for shit so I had to take it upon myself...
