Friday Foto - How to whip up a batch of mashed potatoes

By
Mortgage and Lending with Bank of Oregon a division of Willamette Valley Bank

I normally like my mashed 'taters on a slightly "chunky" side.  I was recently making a batch for company we were having and wanted a more traditional creamier take on them.  So, I pulled out a little hand mixer I have as I didn't feel like carting out the giant KitchenAid mixer.  Well, I just wasn't getting the power I needed.  

I asked dear hubby for some assistance.  I think I need to rehome his Makita to my kitchen.  ;-)

Now there's an idea Karen. One less item you need to keep. And he's pretty smart! I'd say keep him around.

Karen, it made me think of when I used my Hack saw to help the boss cut through bones.  Worked well.

Tammy...do tell...French mashed 'taters?  :)

Morning John.  He's a keeper for sure!  Have a great day! 

Hi Gwen!  In all honesty, I actually prefer the hand mashed method.  Again, I like a little "chunk" left.  Good pun!  lol  

Morning Al.  Ya know what, I'm pretty sure hubby did something similar years ago.  I can't remember exactly but I know there have been other times power tools have graced the kitchen!  lol.  Hope you have a great day!
