My parents have often suggested that I should try instant potatoes for a quick dinner option. They made it sound good, but I’m not really a potato person so I never looked into it. Well, with the Ham That Has Lasted Forever, I thought about giving it a try.
I cracked up when I saw the directions. The brand that I chose could qualify as backpacker food: No cooking. Just boil water, stir, eat.
Seriously. Boil two cups of water and pour in serving bowl. Too bad my crystal was dusty.
Dump potatoes unceremoniously into water.
Take a badly-lit, out-of-focus shot of finished potatoes. You are done.
It was crazy. They were a little salty for me, but with my heated-in-cola ham, the flavors balanced out just right. They also needed a little more water, but other than that, it was a big two-thumbs-up for me.
Hmmmm…. I think an entire ‘just add water’ meal might be in my future…..
