share this potato

I know 22 September is Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthday—but let us not forget that it is also the date in which Samwise Gamgee, last of the Ring-bearers, leaves Middle-earth for ever to reunite with Frodo.

Here’s a fun fact: my mom used to eat raw potatoes as a kid. She’s reading this btw (Hi mom!) Yes, her pops raised 9 children alone. Needless to say, she didn’t grow up with much.

Most folks think that potatoes are poor man’s food. Little do they know that the poor food they speak of has some great benefits. If you disagree please share! Potatoes help fight disease due to the phytochemicals they contain, they help maintain healthy blood pressure and are a good source of vitamin C and B6 and fiber when you eat the skin! The Quechua from Peru have cultural traditions surrounding the potato. So it’s sacred. I eat a lot of potatoes. I just do what my elders and ancestors did. ❤

Oil-Free Hash Browns

2 Russet potatoes, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded (optional)
¼ onion, shredded
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
¼ - ½ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. water

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a large baking sheet in the oven.

Wash potatoes and shred them with a cheese grater. Working with one potato at a time, place shredded potatoes in the middle of a kitchen towel, roll it up and wring the potatoes to soak up and drain any excess liquid. Repeat with the second potato. Next, shred the onion (and zucchini, if using). Add potato shreds to a large mixing bowl plus the onion, flour, salt and water. Mix until combined.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drop ¼ cup portions of potato mix into skillet and cook until browned on both sides; about 3-4 minutes per side. When done, transfer cooked hash browns to baking sheet in oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve with fresh salsa or ketchup.

Dedication to be “In Character”

Despite it being a rather “depressed” theme of the Shingeki of Kyojin, the character of Sasha provides much of the light-hearted moments as a breather from all the angst. 

The most memorable moment comes to the introduction scene:

During the event, Yuu-san as the CV of the character remains dedicated to this distinctive characteristic of Sasha by taking out a steamed potato (out of nowhere!) during her cast greeting (挨拶): 

This little act surprises everyone! This does not end here…
