What Potato Dish Suits Your Sign?
THE STARS - What’s up my fellow star-babies! How is Scorpio season treating you? Sagittarius season is almost upon us and with it comes one of produce’s most delicious days of the year: Thanksgiving. While November offers a prime opportunity to reflect on the bounty of things to be thankful for, it’s also the start of the holiday season, which is often times more stressful than not. Whether you’re looking for a show-stealing side to adorn the table at your own feast or some culinary inspiration to offer lost consumers wandering around your produce aisles, there are plenty of new recipes to try that feature Thanksgiving icon: the great potato.
Mashed, smashed or twice-baked—golden, russet, or sweet—the stars have spoken! Here is a list of potato dishes to try based on your astrological sign, courtesy of Bon Appetite...
