    ^^ That's a sad, sad potato.

    Mutant potatoes! I can nuke them or par boil. I was so sure they'd soak up the gravy because the pieces were pretty small.

    Love these-turnips,peppers,potatoes,carrots-what ever you want. Quarter in big bite size,spray with olive oil and aggressive seasoning. Lord, it is so good!
    Lalalala...all I hear is Mr. McJag sayin' - "we'll be going out for dinner from now on"

    I made a delicious roast with veggies and potatoes. Cooked this thing for 2.5 hours and the pots were still hard. I think the slow and low cooking is the problem. I also think my lower oven is off by about 25 degrees. I have two wall ovens and the top one always preheats faster.
