Cooking Lesson

Kristi expressed an interest in learning how to cook, since bowls of cereal do not constitute cooking. With the “college student” persona done—it was time to cook some grown up food!

Vegetable Medley with Parmesan Cheese

You’ll find the recipe for the Garlic Mashed Potatoes at the bottom of the post. Now—-on to the tale of “Kristi in the Kitchen.

The messy kitchen stove is not her fault—I’m a messy cook. Food flies, pans clank, I sing, I dance, it’s a happy time.

The end result—-Kristi can cook! (((((hugs Kristi))))

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Serves; 8

Prep and Cook time; 45 minutes

Ingredients

3 Lbs Russet Potatoes Pealed and diced

7 Cloves Garlic Pressed

1 C Parmesan Cheese

1 1/2 C Half and Half

2 Tbls Butter

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Peel and dice potatoes, all about the same size. Place in a large saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat to maintain easy boil. Cook until potatoes are tender and break apart with a fork.

Heat the half-and-half and the garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat until simmering.

Remove the potatoes from the heat and drain off the water. Mash and add the garlic-cream mixture, butter and Parmesan; stir to combine. If you want it creamier add more butter.
