Irish Potatoes and Point
When the children would ask the mother, "What is for supper?" The mother would reply, "Potatoes and Point!"
The children and non workers were allowed to point their forks at the meat or fish on the workers plates....
I post this recipe in honor of all of those who lived in Ireland during the great Famine.
- potato per person, washed and boiled in their jackets
- 1 small
- piece of meat or fish, for those who worked to earn a pay
