Irma - "Mallie has always cooked these potatoes as long as I can remember. One day I came home from work to find my son, Roy Jr. at the door. He said, Mama, please don't be mad at me. I just asked for Grandma's fried potatoes. I asked him what was wrong. He said Grandma (Mallie) and Great Grandma Holland were both in the kitchen and each had a frying pan full of potatoes and each were leaned over the stove and fighting. They had their spatulas angled at each over and they were arguing over who was fixing Roy Jr. "their" potatoes! Fred came in and yelled at both of them and that started a major war! Now there was Grandma Holland and Mallie with their stockings rolled up knee high, bent over opposite ends of the stove and facing off and Fred in the middle just ticked off and we were suppose to choose whose fried potatoes were the best! We just call it the Battle of Grandma's Fried Potatoes and took some of each and remarked how well both tasted and never asked them together for potatoes again!!!! Roy Jr. said he learned quite a bit of language on that one and got his belly full!"
