    Cookgirl's Note:

    I scored on 'Purple Majesty' potatoes last weekend at the local farmer's market. Here is a very simple recipe from Chef Michael Anthony via From the site: "There’s a new potato in town, and not only is its flesh a rakish shade of purple that even Prince might find a little loud, but it’s also really good for you.

      Fold in the remaining ingredients, sprinkling the lemon juice on top of the potatoes last.

    7. 7
      This concludes this week's science experiment.
