Grandma’s Cheesy Potatoes

My grandma loves to cook holiday meals. Around Halloween she consults the family on the menu for the upcoming Thanksgiving meal. The funny thing is, it is always the same. She rarely strays from our family’s traditional Thanksgiving foods. But I know she just loves to talk about it so we always indulged her. One year, someone asked if she could make the cheesy potatoes she had served the previous spring at Easter. She raised her eyebrows and dropped her jaw in shock, “We already have mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. I can’t serve three kinds of potatoes!” To which we all replied, “Yes you can!” And from then on we have had not one, not two, but three kinds of potatoes at Thanksgiving dinner. And it’s awesome.
