Yummy! To my mind, there is just no better comfort food as mashed potatoes. I could eat a plate full and this version is really good and thumbs up from the whole fam. Put it this way, I could have eaten 2 plate fulls of these yummers mashies. Followed the recipe as instructed, but forgot to leave some of the skin. Sorry about that Dee, but next time, the skin will be there as we love the skin in our potatoes. Thanks for sharing, Dee. Made it "For your Consideration" tag game.
