Thanksgiving was 'smashing'

Email News Alerts

As you know, I love my mashed potatoes. And this Thanksgiving I was the one to make said mashed taters.

My relatives like them smooth and creamy. Not me! We boil the potatoes, add a little bit of milk and some butter, and then I mash them with our masher about five times. To me they are the best mashed potatoes ever. I love the lumps. (They are by far the best part.) As my aunt and uncle's foreign exchange student calls them, they are my "smashed" potatoes.
