This month’s Potato Tastemaker 2K10 challenge was Nutrition on a Budget. I had to create a nutritious dish for 4 with only $10 – using potatoes of course!

First, a few facts about potatoes:

  • one medium-size potato has just 110 calories and is absolutely fat free
  • one potato provides 45% of your daily value of vitamin C
  • when eaten with the skin, a potato has more potassium than a banana
  • potatoes are often one of the best values in the produce department, costing (on average), just $.25 per pound

For more potato goodness, tips, and recipes, check out Mom’s Dinner Helper from the US Potato Board.

Now, watch and see what I created:

Make sure you click over to the ModernMami.com YouTube channel and rank the video. You’ll have to sign in, but it’s super easy and free to create a YouTube account if you don’t already have one.

Here’s how to rank the video:

  • View the ModernMami #tastemaker challenge 2 video at YouTube. Just click that link to go there.
  • Sign in with your YouTube account or Google account; either works.
  • Click the stars under the video to rank it.

That’s it!

Make sure to spread the word to your friends!

Rank the video. Pretty please?


Don’t remember what I made for part 1 of the challenge? I showed you how to make rellenos de papa…with a salmon twist.

Disclosure: As a Potato Tastemaker challenger, for round 2 of the challenge, I was provided with $10 for creating my dish. Additionally, I received a few kitchen gadgets and a recipe book. No other compensation received.

Dealing with all these people and complying with the paperwork are
usually time-consuming. You have to look for a law firm that offers you unique
attention that you deserve. If you are familiar with any other attorney who
practices in another area, you can always ask him for referral of
an auto accident law firm.

Keeping increase in inflation costs, the cost of the real estate and money crunch in mind,
as we have decided to raise the price of real estate, as stated by
the Chief Executive of Noida-Greater Noida. The apartments in Ikebana are priced very affordably.
But similar to other regions developed by builders, this stretch is
also dotted with Group Housing projects.

Valuable info. Lucky me I discovered your website by accident, and I
am stunned why this twist of fate didn’t took
place earlier! I bookmarked it.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers?

I’d definitely appreciate it.
