Can You Ever Have Too Many Mashed Potatoes?


First, you make a couple of potato "pie crusts"






which you fill with turkey and leftover gravy and freeze for later.



Next, you make a batch of potato rolls. Beautiful! Delicious!

Then you make a chocolate/potato cake.





So why are there still so many stinkin' potatoes?





Okie dokie. We'll put some cupcake papers in the cupcake tins, and fill 'em up to freeze some meal-sized mashed potatoes for some day when we're not tired of them . . . some day in February, say. Or maybe June.

Oh.





Some potato pancakes for lunch, perhaps.




And maybe another batch of these, hamburger-sized.


Perhaps you'd like some potato/coconut candy to go with those potato rolls, potato pancakes, and potato/chocolate cake.


Sigh.
Yes. The answer is yes. You can have too many mashed potatoes.

We hardly ever eat potatoes so we have never had that many leftovers.

But those look really yummy.
