Garlic Red Bliss Mashed Potatoes
Who doesn’t love a hearty side of garlic red bliss mashed potatoes now that the weather has drastically cooled down? Not sure if it is just us here in New England, but it is not even hitting 70 here today and my feet feel like ice cubes! I did a ton of fall cleaning, and even made brownies to try and warm up the house.
It is super chilly Fall days like these that make me thankful for a beautiful home and quaint kitchen. I just love to cook and bake so much more now that I am not sweating bullets! Slow roasted chicken, and some garlic red bliss mashed potatoes are on the menu just because I feel like going that extra mile.
This past Friday I took apart the whole kitchen and scrubbed, dusted, purged, and organized. I have to admit, I just feel so much more motivated to cook, and be productive now that my space is super neat. Being a pack rate that just collects stuff and piles it on top of other stuff, is just not good for the soul.
Anyhow, back to these warm, tasty, and garlic infused mashed potatoes. Boy do they smell amazing when you boil the garlic cloves with the red potatoes. The aroma reminded me of a restaurant and lured my husband away from his work! The recipe is tried and true so I figured I’d share it with anyone looking for fluffy, and VERY tasty potatoes that go perfectly with poultry, pork, beef, or even alone..YES, they are *that* good!
