Who Knew??????????

Ok Grandma C. I guess you "suggested" to me once that these were good, but seriously. They are INSTANT mashed potatoes. Couldn't be "good", more like "passable" right? I totally dismissed the idea. Well guess what. I'm in Dallas, and needed something different to make other than the rice we've had two meals in a row now. I'm on the phone to Lanie who suggests the "Hungry Jack" instant potatoes that YOU recommended to her sometime back that she now swears by and by the way, she has in her cupboard, so I don't have to run out. Hmmmm. OK, I think, if I make these and they taste as bad as I expect them too, then it's Lanie's fault, right? The cook won't get blamed, so it's a win-win.

Guess what? THEY ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! How is that even possible? We are talking dehydrated flaked food here. Plus, and here's the really amazing thing, they take about 3 mins, start to finish.

I'm buying a truckload as soon as I get home. And stock in the company. I made pork tenderloin pillards in rosemary wine sauce with Hungry Jack mashed potatoes. The best meal I've had lately. Restaurants included!

I'm a believer! Call me Mom, when you get a chance.

This is the third time I have written this comment. It must be that I am not clicking on anonmous.
Anyway, it was a long time ago that I told Lanie about the mashed potatoes. I am so glad that you liked them and your description of your menu sounds good, too. Will you share your recipe? Thank you for the pictures of the "before" project. We will look forward to the "after" project.
Happy Birthday on Monday. It was nice talking to you this morning. Love you...
