Potatoes. This vegetable comes closest to being able to do everything except make you a cup of coffee...but it does make you a nice cup of vodka!

to add to my list, potatoes! i forgot about potatoes. i love yukon golds best, and these baby reds. yukon baked and red mashed are my favorites.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

I too love potatoes, all of them, no matter what you do to them I love potatoes. Even raw (especially the yukon ones) sliced thin with a little salt and fresh ground pepper. I nearly like all vegies, except the ones that get slimy and wilt like last weeks salad. If I had to rate 1-10, after the potatoe,

green beans
baby peas
brussel sprouts
onions (including shallots)
raw carrots
parsnip and most all root vegetables.

I like all kinds of veggies, even those I don't like much -- like peas, I find good for flavor in creamed potatoes!

OOOOHHHH YES! Chocolate Chef once more sails it through the bullseye!

Small sweet green peas, mashed potato, chicken or turkey with gravy...A "Trinity" experience of taste and texture...

We should start a column on potato's, separate from this, as there are good arguments on which type to be used in which recipe, but I'm trying to get planed out, now, after daughter's plane was 4 hours late, and I'm still staring from 30 miles night driving cross-country...

Broccoli, any way but raw, fresh green beans, and fresh bi-colored or white corn.
