I had big plans for dinner last night. I got the turkey in the oven, but then ended up having to run two different sets of carpools to two different towns. We had three boys with three different activities all spaced 30 minutes apart. It was so hectic that we didn't actually get to eat the dinner that I had so lovingly prepared. We just pulled pieces of turkey off the bird and gobbled them down as we headed out the door. Ha ha, I said gobbled and I'm talking about turkey. I didn't even mean to.
I did make the potatoes and gravy tonight, so I am posting it now. I first tried these garlic mashed potatoes years ago, and we have never looked back. I prepare them this way every time I make mashed potatoes. They are so yummy that they don't even need gravy. But I did happen to have some this time. Oh, and the turkey recipe I tried is fabulous. Unconventional, but fabulous!
