PrincessFiona's story reminds me of this. Back when I lived in that log cabin and ate too much snowshoe hare, everyone I knew dried bunny skins on empty bottles. Seeing a bunny on a bottle was something no even noticed.

A friend of mine had dinner guests from Montreal. Half way through dinner she noticed that the vegetarian hadn't eaten much of her vegetarian supper. She was staring, with a horrified look, at a bunny on a bottle, right in front of her.

hahhaa My mom's first Thanksgiving dinner was for her, Dad, Dad's twin brother and his wife. Mom had never made a turkey before ... she bought it frozen. She put it into the oven frozen. 10 hours later the bird was still hard as a rock and no-where near cooked. So they ended up dining on deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and tiny little bit of left over roast beef she'd cooked a couple days before. LOL

That happened nearly 50 years ago and she still gets teased about it. =P

My mom also went through a serious potato soup phase... I guess money may have been tight or something because it seems like we ate it all the time. We still say "Come on over I'm making potato soup!" no matter what we're really cooking. And "potato soup" is always the answer when someone asks what's for dinner.

My family's potato story is about my cousin Sandra. When she was a little over a year old she ate her first Thanksgiving dinner with the family. She loved her mashed potatoes. She started getting tired and cranky and was rubbing her eyes. Aunt Janet cleaned Sandy up and put her down for a nap. That evening Sandy started rubbing her eyes and we saw a little string of white coming out from the inner corner of one of her eyes. It was mashed potatoes that she had rubbed into her eye! Thankfully for her we don't call her "Potato Eye" all the time--mainly just around Thanksgiving!
