Why are they called scalloped potatoes ?
I thought I might cook scalloped potatoes for a change tonight, but I rarely cook them and wasn't sure of the recipe. So I grabbed The Joy of Cooking and randomly opened the book in the middle and it opend on the page for scallops. That's a pretty big book so I figure it's worthy of a Only Coincidence? post. I ended up abandoning scalloped potaotes and kept it simple with mashed. Got a little too cocky with the ratios - very creamy. Well, the kids said very liquidy - but that's not a real word.
