Gina: What happened to your cake you cooking? Where's you cake?

Me: I didn't make a cake, baby. I made mashed potatoes.

Gina: Oh.

Me: Do you like mashed potatoes?

Gina: No.

Me: That's okay. Maybe I'll make you some potato patties later.

Gina: No! I don't like tato pa-patties!

Me: Potato patties?

Gina: I don't like tato pa-pattie-toes...tato... I don't like them!

Grandma's Potato Pattie Recipe:

mashed potatoes, rolled up into balls (cold potatoes work best)
1 egg
1/2 cup (or so) of milk
1-2 tbsp butter or oil for frying
salt and pepper to taste

Heat butter or oil in pan. Combine milk and egg in small bowl; beat well. Dip potato ball into egg batter, then drop into pan. Mash down ball with spatula while frying. Cook both sides until desired color (golden, light brown, etc) or stiffness. Season as desired and serve.

I'm seriously going to try this. I love potatoes.
