There are times when I just want a bowl of mashed potatoes.
I’m not a kid but Mashed Potatoes was definitely was one of my favorites to eat with any meal. We would’ve been eating corn dogs for dinner and I would have been happy with a side of mashed potatoes to go along with that. Oh, and applesauce of course. That is a different blog post. Anyway, I love me some mashed potatoes. I especially like my mashed potatoes buttery and slightly thick and lumpy. I know some people don’t but I do. I think in my mind when Mashed Potatoes are lumpy that is how I know they are fresh. I know when I eat lumpy mashed potatoes that someone gave blood, sweat, and tears peeling and dicing those potatoes just to make sure I was happy. Well, with this new kitchen gadget that I love by Kitchen IQ definitely helps make peeling potatoes easier than ever.
