Am I the only one on DP that thinks Potato Pancakes Are Delicious?

I'm trying to get my personal bias out of the way.

One of my earliest memories is of potato pancakes. They came in all imaginable shapes - round, mostly round, oval. But always the same flavor - potato.

I didn't start this thing. It started way before me and I suspect it will continue long after I am gone. Pancakes made of potatoes. Potato pancakes.

Imagine how it could have turned out differently. Dial back your brain and imagine how history could have been different. Imagine if the horror of potato pancakes had never been visited upon the bald clean-shaven face of history.

Now have fun down voting me but before you do think about the original facts and how this whole tragedy began.

You just accept what was passed down to you

but you haven't really researched the matter until you've watched this.

The Implications For One's Immortal Soul

Without potato pancakes, a dopple of apple sauce and a slather of coleslaw aside a slice of rye bread would one really attend to weekly ritual?

One might as well eat meat on Friday (hence the name) and skip the fish fry stairway to heaven. Without such sacrament, might one still raise a family and love one's neighbor?

No. The solemn truth: Potato pancakes are ordained.

Oh I agree - potato pancakes were a warning against the hell...

we might encounter if childish misgivings were ever give long legs to stand on.

But you see it was worse than you imagine - though my Jewish heritage flows 1/64th of the way through my veins I was raised as a Baptist. This meant church 3 times on Sunday and again on Wednesday evening. The potato pancakes were for the times in-between to remind us it could be worse. There could have been mayonnaise!

Bless your bobbins.

Friday Fish Fry Is Ecumenical Tradition

Who you kidding? So you have a scosche of varied heritage in the blend, what WI polack doesn't understand mayo is kosher for tartar sauce.

I do like potato pancakes,

but let us think about this from a moral perspective. Hell, I might be 1/4 pound less fat if I just threw the mashed potatoes away after Thanksgiving dinner. Actually, come to think of it, if potatoes didn't exist, or if they were never mashed, no one would be threatened by those delicious little devils.

I have an awesome idea. Let's bury those potatoes in the ground, so they can never harm anyone again. (that will work, right?)

I AM is all that is. Everything else is malleable.

As long as they don't see you. They do have eyes...

but seriously, this Martin-Zimmerman business was a bad scene all-around. But it's over. Really. It's over. Just like the potato pancakes I was force-fed as a child. It is time to move on.

Please down-vote this thread as I did.

i don't have cable

so your sentiments didn't hit me until today. Now I'm sick of this crap too.

I forgot all about potato pancakes. I had some at a friend's house when I was a kid, and loved them. I don't think I've had any since. How do you make them? Leftover mashed potatoes I guess? Then what, fry them in a pan with butter or something?

If memory serves...

you can throw most anything in a frying pan for a minute and a half and call it a potato pancake. Potatoes are optional. Now what does this have to do with Trayvon Martin?

Simple. Nothing.

Some things, like this unfortunate shooting death case, are unavoidable. Just like potato pancakes. It's time to move on.

Bubbe's tater cakes, mmmm mm.

Skip the latkes - I'm heading for the Pfeffernüsse...

This guy's recipe is fine except for the fact that he made them round instead of finger-shaped. Most importantly he doesn't give the recipe for spiced maple syrup dipping sauce. Still a good effort though...

Don't be dissing the latkes.

Don't be dissing the latkes. I grew up on them. My grandmother's house would perfume the whole neighborhood. You should've smelled her gefilte fish.

Hey - that's my grammy! Give her back!

Pfeffernusse were always a before, during, and after-dinner treat. Don't clean your plate though - gramma will think that means you didn't get enough to eat!

We might be related if your grammy kept her live fish in the bathtub.

I have pretty fond memories of Bubbe making this too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV8JHI2amF0 The smell of it is fantastic and good nosherei.

Gramma loved fishing. And she kept them in a steel tub...

And it was the same tub I would take baths in as a wee tot.

My gramma kept fish in the bathtub!

What? Such a shallow post?

Sarcasm, as I see right through your post and simply love it.

In fact, it made me hungry.

One could almost say, this is the potato pancake famine of 2013, only it's not Ireland, or dare I exclude the proud Irish.

One little known fact about potato's, regardless of which famine has been imposed: They come out of the ground once a year and are stored until someone eats them or buys them, or destroys the warehouse.

The famine is caused that easily. It's just a question of who has the right torch.

In Idaho and Prince Edward Island in September, there will be billions of lbs of potato's sitting in million pound piles until 12 months from then.

Joel Skousen might have been right about Idaho, but he was wrong about Maritime Canada

HashBrowns anyone?

As a third-generation Polish person...

I was raised on potato pancakes and I hate them.

Just seemed like a good metaphor for the whole Martin-Zimmerman fiasco.

Thought it might die off but here it is, still kickin'.
