The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 17, 2021

Linda’s Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mash.” Use it any way you’d like.
Somehow making mashed potatoes by chopping madly at the cooked items in a pan does not have the same texture and appeal as mash made using a masher!
It doesn’t matter how much butter, milk or in some instances cream is added, chopped potatoes are not the same as mashed potatoes.
No-one made mash like my Mum.  A knob of butter, and mashing with masher resulted in the creamiest, smoothest, most divine mashed potatoes ever. Serve with onion gravy, cabbage, and liver and bacon, and that’s my favourite meal ever.
First meal Hubby ever cooked for me actually. Yep, useful guy.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Of all the items my mother owns, the potato masher will be one of the most contested when she passes. I do believe we all have attached special memories to it and the product it produced!
