wait- that's not ketchup......

while i pride myself on generally being pretty decent in the kitchen (i've yet to poison anyone or hear, "wow...uh....taco bell's still open, right?"), 9 times out of 10, my attempts to make hash browns end in horror and carnage. since i successfully made a batch a couple of weeks ago, i foolishly thought i'd try again this evening, as the curse had been lifted.

oh, how wrong i was. 

there are bits of potato all over my kitchen, myself, the hallway, and i'm still trying to figure out how one piece wound up in the dining room. 

i grated my thumb twice, and a chunk of my thumbnail is missing. MISSING, I TELL YOU!

i'm beginning to understand why so many people turn to ore ida for their hash brown needs. 

on the plus side, i only have to suffer through this eight more times, and then the 9th batch should be absofreakinglutely perfect.
