Dave!You know when you buy a frozen dinner and it comes covered in plastic that you have to stab before putting it in the oven? HOW DOES THAT SHIT NOT MELT?!? And if it's made of some kind of transparent flame-retardant chemical... is that something you want sitting on your food? Baking on your food?

Anyway, Safeway had some deli side-dishes on sale the other day, so I picked up a seasoned potatoes...

Tri-Color Potatoes

Looks pretty good, huh?

What I did not see was that "purple potatoes" were part of the deal. They're kind of hidden in the photo.

I didn't even know that purple potatoes existed until I opened up the package and thought that my potatoes had gone bad. But after reading the box more carefully, I found out that they do exist and they really are purple...

They look like a human organ gone bad that was then cut out of somebody and served on a plate. With olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and spices.

I ate one, and it wasn't horrible. But it was purple.

So I picked them all out and ate the yummy-looking non-mutant potatoes.

I take no chances when it comes to eating something you dig out of the dirt.

    Have you ever eaten Terra Blues potato chips? Those are delicious and blue.

    Guess which commonly-a-different-color vegetable also has a purple version. Carrots!

    Oh we love blue potatoes! We even grow them in our garden! And yes, try the Terra Blues potato chips!

    Next time you’re in Portland, you should eat at Andina in the Pearl District. It’s a Peruvian restaurant and absolutely delicious. They serve a fair number of dishes with purple potatoes. Eating there was the first time I’d seen them.
