I'm still working on that chili I made a couple of weeks ago. I talk about chili a lot, but I don't think I give enough credit to really good potatoes (and, honestly, it doesn't take a lot to achieve "good potato" status. Is it recognizably a potato? You're all set! Good potato!).

There is a certain, boring thrill I get when the microwave (I'm lazy) beeps and the floury smell of potato wafts out. Then, I cover it in chili, pickled jalapenos and hot sauce. It gets a little less thrilling after the second week, but on a cold night, even leftover leftover leftovers have their charm.
