“Mashed potatoes are the candy of vegetables.”
Every now and then my world needs mashed potatoes. I do love them. However, I am way too lazy to make them from scratch unless I mash them with their skins still on. But sometimes I crave the creamy goodness of a bowl of old fashioned mashed potatoes. And then –
I decided to try an instant potato product because the ingredients were nothing but potatoes and butter and salt. There were no additives or chemicals with mono-syllabic names. And best yet, the product was on sale!
Did you notice the word, Honest, on the front of the package? What’s not to trust! Wait. Have I been watching too much national news? Whatever.
Product critique – Lovely and delicious and a good platform for sauces, sauced meat, and gravy. Also, did you know that if you add a generous dab of leftover mashed potatoes to a soup, the soup becomes a cream soup?
Other good news – once this product is mixed with boiling water, butter, and a cup of cold milk, I have to wait only 10 seconds before I stir and serve. This is easy enough to have everyday. Thank you, Universe, for spandex!
