It’s Thanksgiving 2011. The time of year we begin to eat ourselves into oblivion and hibernate.
The good news about living in Denver is the winter sunshine, snow on the slopes, and long pants.
Long pants cover up the pale, mashed potato looking legs.
But I digress. It’s time to talk a key Thanksgiving meal element. Mashed potatoes. If you love yours covered in gravy, well, I guess you have a right to your culinary opinion.
An occasional dab of gravy doesn’t do much harm, but potatoes swimming in the stuff is just yucky. Gravy is to moisten dry turkey, potatoes should already be moist and creamy. Here’s a tip: along with some butter add sour cream, cottage cheese and finely chopped chives to your mashers. They will carry the meal and create rave reviews.
We’re an outdoorsy bunch here in Denver, and the weather forecast is for sunshine and 65 degrees. Run or walk the Turkey trot, take a day hike in the foothills, play some touch football, and then eat potatoes to your heart’s delight!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Gretchen Rosenberg
