January 01, 1992|By Carleton Jones,

It happens round about New Year's, all years. Now that pasta has apparently been canonized as a dietetic OK, some worry is off the waistline. But I simply can't do anything about potatoes. No use swearing off. I love them. And in fact, they can be good for you. And they're about the only year-round vegetable that comes in those big, grainy utility grades hauled in from the west and in much classier, dense, small white and red types -- luscious! I even like canned potatoes, great for roasting with meats. The depressing thing is that any solid potato consumption is good for at least a 5-pound gain during mid-winter weeks. Maybe I ought to swear off swearing off and cut way back on the pasta.
