Yet Another Example Of Why Things Happen For A Reason...

Remember this post and this post about the birthday party that Ky was not invited to...

Well I just learned that all of the children who attended the party have Strep Throat! (My niece KK has a mild case...)

And now we have discovered the silver lining behind all the heartache and pain...

Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - The Best Mashed Potatoes EVER!

My dear friend and neighbor shared her favorite family recipe with me before Thanksgiving and it was such a hit that I have to share it will all of your for this latest installment of Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.

Best Mashed Potatoes EVER!!

5 lbs. potatoes

1 stick butter

1 tub (pint) sour cream

1 brick cream cheese

1/4 tsp onion salt

1/2 tsp garlic salt

seasoning salt to taste

Boil the snot out of the potatoes (skins on or off), drain and mash.

Combine with all ingredients. Place in casserole and broil for 5 mins to brown the top.

Yummy! Also great leftovers…they reheat wonderfully!

She warned me that these potatoes were so good that there would be no need for gravy. Did I heed her advice? No. So after Thanksgiving Dinner, I threw out almost all of the Turkey and Pork Gravy...because no one wanted to "ruin" the taste of these heavenly spuds!

Hope you all take my advice and try these taters...but learn from my lesson and let them stand alone...no extras needed!
