On the night of September 17, 2013, I made my very first mashed potatoes! They were delicious. First I peeled the potatoes (I used 3 medium potatoes for this). It is harder than it looks but my mom told me to peel toward myself, that was 10 times more easy.Then I cut them into medium chunks and then I put them in boiling water and let them sit until they were soft but not falling apart. After that, I drained them and put them in a ricer. When you rice them put only a couple of chunks in the potato ricer. Then I put it in the mixer with warm butter and half & half. I whipped it until it was fluffy. I seasoned with salt and pepper (Always use more salt than you need). I ate this with pork chops, apple sauce (work of my grandmother) and green beans. That was my first fall meal.
Kids, you might need help boiling the water and dumping the potatoes into a colander, but the rest you could totally do! It will be easy to convince your parents to help because mashed potatoes are delicious.
