On remote and rustic ranch, there lived a little girl named Jackie who loved potatoes.
(Carries her basket of potatoes)
I love them with butter.
She couldn't resist the smell of baked potatoes. She loved fall because it was harvest time.
Mama, Mama. I picked some potatoes. Can we bake them now?
Is that all we have?
I'm afraid so.
It's been a bad year for all the crops. There’s not much of anything.
(COW wanders in and looks around for food)
Good. I hate peas.
Just a few potatoes.
That's all I like anyway.
But this will only be enough for one dinner. What will we do after that?
We could eat the cow.
(COW stops and looks scared. Starts to sneak out)
(COW stops and sighs with relief)We'll sell her instead.
