Mashed Potatoes

Mommy dictation:

Select your potatoes according to the number of eaters-- one potato per eater. Peel, wash, and cut them in quarter (or smaller) pieces. Cover them with salted water. Boil them for 25 minutes. Adjust the time depending on your altitude. While they boil put in a bowl (here's where you can get creative): salt, pepper, powdered milk, butter, and a little paprika for color. Pour the water off, saving a little in a cup. Put them in the bowl. Beat them up with the beaters and add a little extra water if you need to.

Did I forget to mention the rubbed sage? Don't forget the sage. For eight I usually use about 1/3 c. powdered milk and 1/4 c. butter. These are also good with sour cream instead of the milk or the butter, or some grated cheese like Gruyere beaten in until it disappears.
