One day after working in the garden all day, I came dragging into the house to face dinner for my three children. I had quartered boiled potatoes and when they were done, I added corn starch for thickening. When the food was ready the children came in to eat. They were very hungry that night as usual. Right off the bat they started complaining about the potatoes tasting so badly. I felt so tired and I remember saying, "I do not need this, Lord!" I told them to please be quiet and to just eat! I said there is nothing wrong with those potatoes, its all in your heads!

They kept saying they could not eat the potatoes!. Finally I finished what I was doing and I too sat down to eat, I took a bite of the potatoes only to discover they were so very, very bitter!

I went to the cabinet only to discover I have grabbed the jar of turmeric, instead of the corn starch!

I had transferred the turmeric into a little glass jar, to get it out of the tin, as I had did the corn starch to get it out of the box. I had marked the containers, but I had failed to see my markings.
Now the children are grown, but they love to talk about the time Mom made those potatoes...........

I shared my stories with my children and they corrected me, I had been making pickles a couple of days before and instead of grabbing the corn starch or the turmeric, I had put in alum.
