The Famous Mashed Potato Bar

I know, you've all been waiting with bated breath to hear about the mashed potato bar. Don't worry, I have photographic evidence.

It was pretty awesome. Even better, the next morning, we made individual servings of scrambled eggs that people personalized with leftover potato bar toppings.


Anyway, we're back from our Thanksgiving trip. The drive was suitably hellish, taking nearly 10 hours to get there (from Boston to NJ...usually about 5.5 hours), and 7 hours to get home. I hate Thanksgiving traffic. I swear, next year I'm petitioning the family to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. Or Columbus Day Thanksgiving. Or Veterans Day Thanksgiving. Anything that doesn't require me to be on the road the day before turkey day.

Other than the traffic, we had a great time. We had an awesome Thanksgiving. We went out to a fancy-schmancy lunch to celebrate my MIL's birthday. We played lots of games, like The Works and Super Munchkin. We were introduced to the TV show Big Bang Theory, which is ridiculously funny and I'm not sure how we've missed it. We hung out with family and generally had a good time.

I hope all of you also had a great holiday!

I think that would be wasted on my family - too many picky eaters.

We made regular mashed potatoes and garlic and cheddar mashed potatoes this year. We ended up bringing most of the regular mashed potatoes home with us, while the garlic and cheddar ones were all gone. So, I think we'll just stick to the garlic and cheddar mashed potatoes from now on.

I would be in hog heaven with a mashed potato bar - and then have a blast with the eggs the next day. My kind of food.

Sorry the driving was such a pain!

That sounds good with mashed potatoes or eggs!
