The other night, Shad was helping me pick a recipe from Southern Plate to cook this week. Shad said, "Hey, is there a recipe for mashed potatoes in there?" Excited to have a good pick, I said, "Yeah! Genius Shad! I'll make that this week." Shad smiled and said, "Great! Mashed potatoes go great with chicken planks!"
Curses! Tricked! Well, I am making Meme's mashed potatoes tonight, and I'll let you know how they taste. I love mashed potatoes, and I consider my mashed potatoes to be great, but I'm interested to see what this recipe tastes like. You can find the recipe here. So tonight we are having chicken planks, mashed potatoes, and some other vegetable. It's okay though, Mother's Day is Sunday, so I'm just buttering them up.
I did make something unusual this week.
Recognize these handsome guys...chocolate covered peeps. I made a fried peanut butter and peeps sandwich a month ago, and now I had to try this treat. It would have been better if they were fresh Peeps, and not slightly stale 50% off two weeks after Easter Peeps, but they were still good.
