Spuds at St. Anne’s

As we approach “Potato Bowl Week” and some of our residents and staff anticipate the big parade and UND football game on Saturday, we thought “Potatoes at St. Anne’s” would be an appropriate topic.

We actually serve potatoes, in various forms, several times a month in our dining room.  Menu selections include:

  • Tater tots
  • French fries
  • Boiled potatoes
  • Scalloped potatoes
  • Whipped potatoes
  • Cream of potato soup
  • Oven-browned potatoes
  • Potato salad
  • Potato chips
  • Baked potatoes
  • Spudsters

During this coming week, our “joke of the day” will be selected from a list of several potato-related “knee slappers.”

For example: Where were the first French Fries made?  In Greece.

Have a happy Potato Bowl Week!!

  1. It seems that a princess, whose family was quite into potato farming wanted to marry a local TV personality. She knew her parents wouldn’t approve because he was a commontater.
