Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes - Pinterest Success #10


The morning after Christmas is here and I am reflecting on the fun we had as a family. The whole preparation involved is exhausting, but seeing my daughters interact with their cousins and Grandparents makes it all worth the effort. The highlight of our night was our traditional game we all play together. This year we played a game called 5 Seconds. The object of this game is to name three things in response to a question you are asked, in only five seconds. When asked to name three perennials, wouldn't you know I could not think of a single one - and I am the gardener in the family :-) The game made for a lot of laughter and fun, late into the night.

One of the dishes I made for Christmas dinner was Twice Baked Mashed Potatoes. It was a big hit and went perfectly with our ham. Also, you can make it ahead and just put in the oven to bake, before your guests arrive. You can find the original pin and recipe here.

Have a relaxing day after Christmas!

  17. These look very yummy. Similar to ones we call 'Sunshine potatoes'. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. Isn't it funny how your mind plays trick on you? Last night we played games with 4 of our friends. We are a game loving family. One game we played, Word on the Street" you had to think of words to use as many of the letter tiles as possible. The more times you used a letter the more you got to move it to your side. I said, "queen, then we can move the n twice". Since when did the word queen have two n's and only one e? lol!

  18. This looks so good! Comfort food for sure. Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
