Nothing exciting, I had a frozen dinner that was okay, Shrek had a peanut butter and honey sandwich with home made tapioca pudding.

Thanks Cat. Your steak dinner sounded lovely!

I thought we had more potatoes, I looked in the bag, we had two.....It was enough for me to split the dish, but DH was still hungry. So he had some cheese and crackers as well.

(Actually, thinking about it, and I think Pac may agree with me here, the only thing that would add to that wonderful dish - is some bacon!)
Thanks Katy! No bacon

I made it to take to a pot luck at work today, I saved some out for Shrek, it's a favorite. Most of those eating it today had never had home made, from scratch, tapioca. It is now on request for the next pot luck.

I am a fan of "Desiree" potatoes (which are red-skinned). But obviously there are many variations of potato in existence.

When you guys say "redskin" is that a particular variety, or a general term?
They're a red thin skinned potato, unlike a thicker skinned Russet. Pretty generic here, they could be anything. Often, little new potatoes are redskins. What's nice is that they don't need to be peeled before cooking.

Costco sells a nice bag of fingerlings in all different colors, some redskins, some purple. Will have to put them on the Costco list!

I am interested in this recipe too, though in my case, it is just to see if the revolting tapioca pudding I endured as a child, was because of a bad recipe, a bad cook, or I just hate tapioca!

Katy, I really don't know what kind of "redskin" potatoes I have, sometimes there is a name at the grocery store other times not. I was using the term "generically". We like all kinds of potatoes! I will look for Desiree.
