    It's like asking if there are 3 boys and 2 girls, how many couples can you make with this group? Give the boys the names of the vegetables and the girls the names of the potatoes. You have 3 choices for your sides (the boys) and 2 choices for your potatoes (the girls) The total number of choices (couples) you have then is \(3\times 2\).

    So there is one option with these many choices. Just make sure they are unique and you have boy (vegetable) with girl (potatoe) and your done!
