Homemade mashed potatoes or whipped potatoes can be whipped up in a jiffy and it's so simple and tasty, minus the MSG. All you have to do is to boil a bag of potatoes, mash them together with some pure butter and add in some salt and pepper. Easy peasy! And your kiddos can help you too. I'll bet they'll love to help out with the mashing as well as the whacking of the yummy mashed potatoes later, like in the case of my 3 angels.
One picture is missing, which is the end product. The girls were so keen to dig into the mashed potatoes that they helped to prepare that I did not even have the time to take a nice pic of it. Never mind, next time I'll remember to snap a pic!
