I always used to say - I will never make mashed potatoes from scratch - what a colossal waste of time!
WRONG - the last time I bought refrigerated mashed potatoes, the were not edible - they were icky and grainy and gross. I decided right then and there that I would make my own. Aside from the fact that I need a new peeler (I am thinking Pampered Chef, of course) it was not bad - even Ron liked them (he is the pickiest eater on EARTH). They were fluffy and yummy and CHEAP!! Hello!!!! SO very cheap - and made so many - we will have potato pancakes with supper tonight we had that many left!
My aunt used to tell me all the time I was crazy to buy mashed potatoes already made. I used to think the was crazy to bother to make them. I was wrong. She was right. If you love mashed potatoes like I do - it is definitely worth the effort!
