I can not do it. I can not make mashed potatoes to save my life. I follow the instructions. I follow all the cooking advice from my Grandma, Mom and Shirlene but I still can’t make good mashed potatoes. I know that it is foolish to expect them to turn out like any of the fore mentioned women’s mashed potatoes, but something eatable would be nice. I think my kids will just have to wait for Holidays with the Grandmas to ever have mashed potatoes. Poor kids. I can just see their sad little faces while I explain to them that they have to wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas for mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes aside, I do make a mean scalloped corn, thats got to count for something, right?!?
