It's So Easy

The music died, but delicious potatoes live on with lots of scrumptious taters freebies for National Potato Lovers Month.

The Day the Music Died
The Day the Music Died


By Colleen Walsh Fong


On February 3, 1959, the music officially died when Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash while flying in a snowstorm to reach the Winter Dance Party. Many readers, (and the author,) aren’t old enough to have appreciated these 3 influential musicians in their time. But almost every American has heard the originals or the countless covers of many of their songs, with or without knowing it.


Of course things always get back to food or unusual holidays with me. And I decided to combine “National The Day the Music Died” with National Potato Lovers Month which occurs in February. 


So, See how many songs by the late big 3 you can find in this post.


After one serving, taste-testers were crying, waiting, and hoping for our Baked Chipped Potatoes, a new favorite solo among our A-La-Carte Recipe Ensembles. They’ll leave you wanting more, and it’s so easy to make them! After finishing his serving, one of our tasters nodded his head and said, “That’s what I’m talking about.”


True story!


Another delicious and easy dish is our Baked “(You’re So Square) Baby I Don’t Care” Potato Squares from both of our Easy Weekly Meals Touchscreen cookbooks


This dish takes 5 minutes or less of prep time and bakes up to your crispy-creamy delight in 40 minutes. Once you savor their delicious flavor the memory of their yummy taste will not fade away!


One more incredibly easy and healthy potato dish is our Steamed Potatoes. It’s posted on our Sample Recipe page for a short time, only. So come on, let’s go give it a try!


We’re currently testing our new Potato Pizza! So far our tater tasters are giving it 5 spuds.
