The date is set! November 18 is the Second Annual Pre-Thanksgiving hosted by Jay & I. A small group of friends has been invited (er, as many people as we can fit in our 400 square foot apartment) and menu planning is happening.
Last night, I tested one of the staples of a quality Thanksgiving dinner: Mashed Potatoes.
I’ve always sort of just thrown together mashed potatoes without thought to measurements, so I set out to measure this time. The results were creamy and fluffy and crazy delicious. I set some aside in the fridge to test their day-after-appeal. I re-heated them today and to my surprise – they were still amazing! I’ve figured it all out. And they’re sooo easy to make! Detailed directions and recipe below. You’re welcome.
Step 1: Chop your potatoes to half-inch cubes. Place in a bowl – they’re on standby.
In a large pot (perhaps larger than mine), boil water (enough to cover your potatoes). Add potatoes.
Step 2: Boil 12-15 minutes. Check with a fork for doneness. They should be able to be easily pricked with a fork but not falling apart. You want mashed potatoes, not potato water, right?
Drain. Place in bowl.
