do that mashed potato!

I celebrated my new working stove with the best supper ever yesterday! I made myself some steak, boiled carrots and garlic mashed potatoes! The mashed potatoes were something new to me, I read a trick that I just had to try. Here is the recipe:

Garlic Mashed Potatoes


4 medium size potatoes
1 large clove of garlic
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
salt, pepper and parsley to taste

Peel the potatoes and place them in a pot with enough water to cover. Add the clove of garlic. Boil them for about 30 mins or until a fork easily goes through. Drain. Mash with a potato masher then add milk and butter, salt, pepper and parsley. Bring out your hand mixer and mix until creamy. You may need to add more milk or butter..

These potatoes were sooo good. I have left over potatoes and I found a recipe for gnocci. I’m not sure if I’m going to try it out.. but I’m really craving spaghetti and meat sauce.. so who knows. I may have gnocci and meat sauce instead!

Yesterday was nothing special, I was so tired and sore I didn’t have the energy to do anything. I ended up cleaning up the garage so I could park my car in it again, did laundry, and I installed the air conditioner. I had used the stove yesterday and it really warmed up the house. It was so uncomfortably hot I had to install the little portable air conditioner. I wish we would have had it the whole time because it really makes a differenence! I didn’t think I would be able to install it on my own, but I guess I was desperate haha. I managed to lift it and carry it and set it in the window all on my own! Now I can relax in the cool house while we have major heat waves for the next two weeks! YAY!
