You would think that Dave and I had something better to do with our time than have a "who makes the best mashed potatoes" contest, right?
He thought that his way of making them was easier and better....so, the challenge was on!
I boiled several cut up potatoes and divided the whole pot in half when they were done. Dave began to work with his half, and I did the same with mine.
Now, it seems that we have different techniques in making delicious homemade mashed potatoes. I start the process by putting the cooked potatoes through a ricer.
Dave, on the other hand, likes to just mash his cooked potatoes with a fork or hand pastry blender as he adds butter and milk. After whipping this mixture to a frenzy, he seasons it with salt and pepper. "Simple and good" he says.
So, of course, I did a blind taste test with him. He tried both samples of potatoes and then gave his opinion on which one was the best.
He picked mine.
