A potato piece.

 

Being poor can result in some good food.

 

Food good enough for a King and a pauper.

 

Started with just six potatoes and a peeler.

 

We stood at the kitchen sink and peel.

 

Peel the Six potatoes.

 

They were not so big 

 

and

 

they were not so small

 

Fresh earth still on them.

 

They had just been dug out.

 

Fresh new potatoes

 

 

 

Once peeled gave them a quick rinse.

 

Discarded the peels into a bowl

 

To go into the garden compost

 

The potatoes were squared

 

and put into hot water.

 

not being whole meant quick to boil

 

And sure enough so the heat was off

 

and let the potatoes sit in hot water

 

all the better for them later

 

That later was half an hour later.

 

 

 

 

So I scooped out four  squares onto a bowl.

 

Four squares so that made a potato.

 

A lovely steaming potato.

 

I took a fork and smashed it gently.

 

Then I added a knob of butter.

 

Forking the butter into the potato.

 

Then I added some cottage cheese

 

Again melting it in with the fork.

 

The delicious taste hit my nose

 

Hunger that past from stomach to brain

 

 

 

 

Quickly grabbed for two white slices of bread

 

Now was the time to make a Potato piece

 

So with the piece being buttered all was good

 

A large spoon then dolloped the buttered potato

 

Dripped with butter the piece was ready to be eaten

 

Indeed good enough for a King

 

Indeed good enough for a Jack
