Well tonight we had ham steaks grilled with grilled pineapple slices,
corn on the cob and some greens and did mash for the kids. I decided I
would have serve of mash (as opposed to a lick of a spoon) as I haven't
been grocery shopping this week and the low carb veggie pickings are
sparse. Even with a creamy, garlic sauce I honestly didn't enjoy the
mash at all. So I had idealised mash for nothing ;)
You should have tried my mothers, sort of a grayish colour with a taste you just couldn't pick what it was, I was 15 before I realised the mashed potato was supposed to be white. Mums secret ... she always burned the potatoes :-)
I pulled kitchen patrol in my National Guard unit many years ago and they needed potatoes mashed for lunch ... so I up-sized my mom's recipe:
100 pounds potatoes; boil till very soft
2 gallons whole milk
10 pounds butter
1 pound salt
1 1/4 pound coarse black pepper
The troops came back begging for seconds on the potatoes . . . . . . . . .
And the Mess Sergeant offered me a job as a cook ... but I don't like to ruin good food.
Did you have to peel all those potatoes?
Scary thought, eh? I think I have watched too many Sgt Bilko type shows, they put me right off peeling spuds ;) I will never peel a potato unless I really have to, lol. My potato salad has unpeeled potatoes. Mash would too if I could get away with it :)
