Cooking fail

I've been making mashed potatoes for years, and I make them at least once a week or so at work. I salt the water, add cut up potatoes, put the pot on the fire and bring it to a boil. I let it cook until the potatoes are soft, and I mash them with the cooking water. I usually need to add salt as well as pepper

I don't know what happened this time, but this time, the potatoes were inedibly salty. Maybe it was too much salt in the water; maybe I let them cook too long. Maybe I had too few potatoes - I've gotten used to cooking five pounds at a time. I know I didn't ADD salt.

The chicken (airline filets - breast cutlets with the skin and the first wing joint. I butchered chickens this afternoon. I love dismembering chickens) came out perfect. The string beans were string beans.

Ah, well.


The string beans were string beans.

Which means they were nummy and squeaked slightly when you bit into them? ;)

I'm sorry your potatoes came out too salty.

let's blame the potatoes :) how dare they be so salty?!

I need to cut down that salt. Clearly.
