Strange, but worth noticing
Posted on April 29 2008
Okay so I have been awful at keeping up my blog! I just never want to sit myself down long enough to actually write something. So I'll keep it short and sweet.
This is not breaking news, not informative, not emotional, possibly only funny to a handful of you. But Saturday I decided to cook the 20 lb. turkey that was in my freezer since Thanksgiving. Hey, what can I say? Someone else offered to cook the big bird back then!
Also? There were mashed potatoes...of course! I make fabulous mashed potatoes. In fact...I'll add the recipe!
So that's it! That was our weekend excitement! We really need to get out more :)
Lisa's Fabulous Mashed Potatoes
5 lbs. potatoes, whatever kind you prefer
1 to 1-1/2 sticks of butter
5 ounces of shredded cheddar
5 (ish) ounces of sour cream
1/2 block of cream cheese
garlic salt to taste - fresh garlic crushed if you have it
1/4 cup of milk
salt & pepper to taste
- boil your potatoes until fork soft. drain. while they are draining place 1 stick of butter in the already hot pot, with milk. heat until butter starts to melt. placed drained potatoes back in the pot and add sour cream and cream cheese. mash. add cheddar cheese and garlic salt. mash! taste and see if you need more salt and add a dash of pepper. if they are too dry add a little more milk or sour cream. yum, yum, yum!
