Number 4 – Made Mashed Potatoes

I'm still running behind in posting about my 31 Things project, but here is number 4. 
Unfortunately Nick had to work on Thanksgiving.  The upside was that he was working days, so we were able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner later in the day with family. 
He and his co-workers make the best of the working the holidays by bringing in food and sort of having their own celebration with their work family.  I think it’s great that they do that. This year Nick was supposed to bring in mashed potatoes. 
We use the recipe from The New Southern Garden Cookbook by Sheri Castle, and they are fabulous.  Everyone always raves about them whenever we take them to an event.  This year, I made two batches for Nick to take, one for his shift, and one to leave for the night shift.

    1. Isn't it funny how mashed potatoes are one of those foods that just reading the words can make you want them?!? :-)

  4. What a great recipe. I once was in charge of making a huge batch of mashers to a family party and misread the directions. I put in four heaping tablespoons of salt in the potatoes instead of four heaping teaspoons and boy were they puckery potatoes...
