3 pounds yukon gold potatoes
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk at room temp
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt (plus more for the water)
Several dashes fresh black pepper
Cut potatoes into about 1 1/2 inch chunks. Place in a pot and cover with cold water. Spinkle about a teaspoon of salt into the water. Cover and bring to a boil.
Once boiling lower heat to a simmer and cook for about 12 minutes, until fork tender. Drain potatoes, then place back in the pot. Do a preliminary mash with a potato masher, just to get them broken up. Add milk, oil, salt and pepper and mash until fluffy. You may want to add a bit more milk, if needed. Taste for salt and pepper and serve!
You can make mushroom gravy to go with this! Yummm!
Once again, we are OUT of school for a snow day. Now we don't go back until Tuesday because of the holiday on Monday. This is really a bit ridiculous. I guess today maybe God is teaching me patience??? I also have to decided to really try to eat healthier when all of this is over. I say that every year and we're good for about six months and then we fall back into our rut of eating out alot and going through drive-thrus. I'm going to attempt at least one vegan or vegetarian meal a week. That will be my new challenge for 2011. I'm hoping that in doing that, we'll start eating healthier every day and not just once a week. Seth made me promise that we still have our pizza nights and Caleb wants Chinese movie night too which should be okay. :)
