Day 3 Week 2 of BM #52 -
Is there any kid out there who is not fond of potatoes? I don't see anyone raising their hands. I usually have a tough time telling my kids to avoid eating potatoes everyday. So when I told my older one if she would like to have mashed potatoes as part of her after school snack, she looked at me and said "What kind of a question is that? How can I ever say no to that? Whatever are you thinking?" That says it all.
Usually my older one makes mashed potatoes for herself adding as many seasonings as she fancies on that particular day. But she told me this combination was her favorite. So I made it to suit her taste and she thoroughly enjoyed having it for a snack. Not to forget the little one who enjoyed just as much!
