    So Long

    It has been so long that I've had mashed potatoes and I am really having an urge for them right now. But, alas, I cannot have any for another two years at the least... I shall go on missing them so.

    SO here's how I make magic happen with Mashed

    Potatoes - I add an extra increment of milk than the box says to (for instance, if it says 1/2 cup go to 2/3 cup) but only after adding the flakes to the boiling water - that is key. Next I add in onion powder, garlic powder, cilantro, a heap of shredded cheese and sour cream...
