Decisions, Decisions, Decisions
Ever go to the supermarket with a list of ingredients but when you get there, you realize there are a lot more choices than you imagined. This can easily happen when you are shopping for potatoes. Most markets have a huge selection of them and what you buy depends a lot on what you're going to do with them. So this cartoon depicts the Reluctant Gourmet at the market trying to figure out which potatoes to buy and what to make with them.

Hello, I really like the cartoon of the man scratching his head looking at the potatoes. I am wanting to use it for a diet program I run. I did not see a way to purchase the rights to use the cartoon. Could you direct me to one.
Hi Rochelle, at this time none of my cartoons are available for licensing and are fully copyrighted although I may make them available in the future. Thanks for asking and not just taking. - RG
