Does anyone do hand-mashed potatoes anymore? There is an incredible textural substance and appeal for me in something like this — especially when the potato skins are left on (attributing that to making it a healthier dish for all those carbs I am going to enjoy). Besides, pounding that manual potato masher down into the pot really drives off any frustrations and stress from the day, lol.
There are no photos tonight because I am typing as I eat. Some garam marsale (Indian spice mixture), cayenne, shopped banana pepper (from the garden) along with the usual ground sea salt and black peppercorns make the taste buds perk up, too. Wish you were here to enjoy some with me!
