When I first moved to Ohio, I lived in a loft in downtown Cleveland. There was a handy little specialty grocery store located right downstairs that I visited often. It was especially appreciated when the temperature plummeted because I didn't have to brace for the cold to grab groceries! They also had very tasty stuffed grape leaves on their salad bar, and I ate my weight in these tasty little things. When my sister visited, we would immediately head down to stock up on them! When I later moved to Arkansas for a year, I mourned the loss of these leaves and I couldn't find any salad bar versions that could compare.
If you know me, you are aware that I have a slight obsession with potatoes. Ok, maybe a huge one. Basically, I can't live without potatoes! To be fair, what's not to love about this versatile vegetable? They give the world with fries, chips, and even vodka. My fiancé and I visited Ireland last year and I was in hog heaven because every meal came with one to two sides of potatoes. While I love all the wonderful potato dishes of the world, my favorite potato persona will always be the ever popular classic... French fry!
