Calling all potatoe lovers!

For Dotty! Laura shared with me your kind e-mail, and that you were also a potatoe lover! I too love potatoes, in any variety, shape, and serving technique. I will eat them baked, boiled, fried, scalloped, au gratin, mashed..."It doesn't matter how they come... just be sure to bring me some!" Here is my favorite potatoe recipe that you requested! It is from my mother's, dear friend Annette's, mother, Irene! Whew! (Is that even grammatically correct?!) Oh well, correct or not, the dish is delicious! Enjoy!
