Painting potatoes and donuts



Today’s painting prompt is potatoes. My parents’ parents were born in Ireland, so my mom made a lot of potatoes when I was growing up. I hated them, but I think the only food I liked were sugar cereal and candy so that isn’t saying much. I used to hide my food at dinner to make it seem like I ate. One time I pretended to drink my milk but actually was spitting my mashed potatoes into the milk. I put my unfinished milk glass in the refrigerator. Later my mom made tea and went to pour a little of my milk into her cup, but out plopped my mashed potatoes. I have come to like potatoes but rarely make mashed. Most holidays I ask my mom to bring hers.

Yesterday’s prompt was donuts. I like them much better! πŸ˜„

  1. Lol – I wish I didn’t love potatoes πŸ™‚

  2. As a child I hated many meals my mom made. But unfortunately I don’t remember any incident as funny as your potato story. πŸ˜€
    I remember when she made vegetable soup with milk (it doesn’t sound very good even today πŸ˜€ ) and me and my sister we put all the soup back to the pot, even didn’t think about that mom will notice that the pot is full of soup again.

    Your donuts seems tasty. πŸ™‚

  3. Your story reminds me of how I used to hide my fluoride vitamins in my parent’s desk drawer…I also fed them to my cat as a kid! My cat had great teeth! Lol! πŸ˜„ Love your paintings – especially your donuts! Yum! πŸ©πŸ’•

  4. Such nice looking doughnuts! Unfortunately for me I love potatoes, always have. As a kid I ate them or peanut butter sandwiches and that was about it. How did our Mothers ever survive our pickiness? πŸ™‚
