Instant Mashed Potatoes On Thanksgiving? You Betcha!
My husband seldom cooks dinner, but what he does do is reheat leftovers to serve us on my nights off. The other evening, though, I was truly surprised that along with the prior night's barbecued chicken and yams, he had cooked mashed potatoes. I was wowed! Even after he showed me the foil packet they came from.
I rarely eat mashed potatoes except on Thanksgiving, and maybe Christmas. Of course, I always mashed the potatoes myself. It would kill my family to think that I'd whipped up instant mashed potatoes to serve to them. But, guess what? I'm going to serve instant mashed potatoes this Thanksgiving - the same kind my husband made for me: Honest Earth All Natural Creamy Mash.
So yummy and smooth, and I am not overstating it! No artificial taste, no artificial ingredients; just potatoes and butter! You add water, milk, and salt and more butter or margarine; then you stir. The whole process takes 5 minutes. And Honest Earth is a company dedicated to sustainability in all of its business practices, so it feels good in all ways to support it.
The Honest Earth All Natural Creamy Mash, formerly marketing under the "Paradise Valley" brand name, is available from Costco stores. But Honest Earth makes a few other special blends like All Natural Baby Reds Chunky Mash, and All Natural Yukon Golds Chunky Mash that you can find at YourFoodStore.com or Amazon.
And watch out for Honest Earth's new Buttery Homestyle Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Garlic Creamy Mashed Potatoes.
I wish my homemade mashed potatoes tasted this good, but even if they did, I would make Honest Earth instant... and here's why. Time is getting more and more precious; we are working harder and longer to make less money than just a few years ago. I'll make the turkey, the stuffing, heck, even the gravy for the mashed potatoes, but with Honest Earth's All Natural mashed potatoes that takes 5 minutes to make, I can spend the leftover 4 hours with my family.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
