I'm not sure if it's the Irish in me, but I love potatoes. I love potato in every possible form, mashed, baked, french fries, potato chips etc. However, my all time favorite is definitely mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are the first thing I learned to cook and they are always what I am in charge of when we make dinner at my parents house. When I started having problems with my stomach, I had a slight dilemma with my mashed potatoes. Potatoes are 100 percent fine for my stomach, but the HUGE amount of butter I liked to add to help mash it all up, was not as good. That's when I began making Kelly's Famous Healthy Mashed Potatoes. Okay fine, they are ridiculously easy to make and I am talking them up, but I am quite proud of myself for finding a creative solution to this problem. I now pour warm chicken broth (just heat it up in the microwave) onto my potatoes before I mash them. This serves the same purpose as the milk and butter and allows the potatoes to whip up nicely. It adds some nice flavor too. I admit it's not QUITE the same as all that yummy butter, but especially if you are eating a meat with some flavor (such as chicken teriyaki) it's definitely okay! I've even got my family eating it this way and my mom claims it's better (I don't know about that, but definitely healthier!). Here is a picture of my wonderful creation.
Some day when you are feeling healthy, try it out. And then, like me you can ruin all your good intentions with some yummy Purple Cow frozen yogurt (black raspberry with chocolate and white chocolate chips) YUMMM! I was going to say I don't normally eat this much ice cream (since I just posted a picture two days ago) but that would probably be a lie :)
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thanks for the info about the random number generator for my next giveaway, I will definitely do that next time :)
