Here’s a mashed potato recipe that I use for holiday meals. I like it because it can be done a day in advance.
Crockpot Mashed Potatoes
5 pounds red potatoes, cut into chunks ( you can peel them if you wish)
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1 8 oz. container sour cream
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter
salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, garlic and chicken bouillon cubes. Cook potatoes until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving a little of the cooking water. Mash potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese, adding reserved cooking water to reach desired consistency. (At this point you can stick it in the frig until about 4 hours before serving time) Transfer to a 4 quart crockpot, cover, and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours. Just before serving, stir in butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.
(I leave the butter out because we use gravy and lots of it!)

graham cracker crust in the packets, prep according to directions, use 2 pie worth in a 9×13 dish
3 packets cream cheese
1-2 cups of whipped cream
1 cup sugar
Guys, this almost passes for a real cheesecake and it’s just so good. If you use double the splenda for sugar, you can make a diabetic type and it still tastes good. I recently heard from my sis that you can also use powdered sugar, and its even better.
I also make a variation of this into a chocolate peanut butter silk pie because that is my hub’s favorite. Use a single chocolate graham cracker crust, Reduce the recipe to 1 packet cream cheese, 1/2 or so cup of whipped cream, 1/2 cup of peanut butter or so, and then top it with more whipped cream and drizzle fudge topping over it. You can tell while you’re making it how much whipped topping to add, how much peanut butter to add.
You notice a lot of my recipes call for ‘or so’, that’s because I just don’t use recipes much. I get the jist of it, and play to my tastes. _________________ ÂPolitics is like driving a car.
