and in breaking news… by Tracy Crisp | Apr 2, 2008 | Uncategorised | 9 comments …it is not impossible to f*ck up mashed potato. 9 Comments Stomper Girl on April 2, 2008 at 5:03 pm That’s not news to me, honey. Reply Mummy Crit on April 2, 2008 at 5:22 pm Nor to me. I can bugger up just about anything you care to name. Reply cellobella on April 2, 2008 at 9:44 pm Lol. ’nuff said. You’re not alone. Reply fifi on April 3, 2008 at 7:29 am no, not impossible. With me, highly likely. Reply Zoe on April 3, 2008 at 11:42 am It is possible to fuck up absolutely anything at all in the kitchen, I’ve found. Reply Isabelle on April 3, 2008 at 10:27 pm Lumps, that’s why I never make mashed potatoes. If people want them, well, they have a fork. Reply tigtog on April 3, 2008 at 10:50 pm Mmmmmmmmmmmm – mashed potato. Reply tut-tut on April 4, 2008 at 3:18 am Only Dad does that correctly around here . . . Reply Helen on April 5, 2008 at 9:03 am Jill Dupleix’s smashed potatoes are a big hit around here. You boil small potatoes until they’re reasonably soft, drain, pack together in a shallow baking dish and then press down on them with the potato masher, not to mash them completely but just so they kinda burst and sit even closer together. You then drizzle a nice olive oil over the top and sprinkle some rock salt and rosemary, the incinerate it in the oven at 200 degrees or more (we’re talking Celsius here, US people) until the top goes a bit brown. Unbelievable. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment Name * Email * Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
