Potato straw cake

Yesterday I made a pizza with potato for a topping (and cheese, and a garlic rosemary olive oil). I steamed the thinly sliced potato and added it on. But I probably should have soaked it a bit first -- it came out very gloppy. Oh well.

Tonight I made "potato straw cake", which was basically shredded potatoes dropped into a frying pan and turned into a vague huge latke. Pretty easy to make and fairly dull. It would have been better with some cheese in it. I wound up mixing some ketchup and vinegar and asafœtida for a topping, and that made it generally not unedible.
