Something not quite right

When I discovered that Sainsbury were getting in some Purple Majesty potatoes - which apparently taste exactly the same as other potatoes, but are gloriously purple in appearance, I knew I had to try them.

And, indeed, they were lovely:


Creamy texture, lovely taste, and although our eyes were screaming that something was clearly wrong, our tongues were very happy indeed.

(That's after dicing, parboiling and covering in oil, salt and garlic then being stuck in the oven for half an hour. Yum. The chicken was also lovely, I hadn't peeled tomatoes myself before, but it turns out to be trivially easy.)
