I love scalloped potatoes!  I can eat them on any given day of the week.  I like them with cheese, chives, cheese and chives, onions-whatever.  Any iteration of scalloped potatoes is all good with me 🙂

But it wasn’t always that way.

In fact, when I was a kid, I HATED scalloped potatoes!!!  Baby there aren’t enough exclamation points to help me stress this point.  Now, do you think that this fact mattered to my mama?  Ummm…NO!

Note:  If you don’t know my mama, go back and read the post “Mama and the Balloon Man.”

      Girl you killing me!

      Oh, if you haven’t, you should read what Infinite zip (Kim) said happened when she tried that with her Mama about some chicken 🙂

  2. Scalloped potatoes are bomb! There are a number of things I didn’t like that much when I was younger and love now. Mustard for example, I would only eat ketchup on my hotdogs. Now I only eat mustard and relish on them. I like ketchup, but it tastes funny on certain things now.

  3. Lady G- I love scalloped potatoes. As a matter of fact, it’s 2 am and you are making me hungry, LOL! Unfortunately, I never had to stay sitting because I was a clean plate clubber. Thank God for sports. I am thinking that perhaps your mother made that statement that she couldn’t let you win to teach you a lesson. The lesson being that life will not always go your way. And that is my two cents….. great post!
