So, here you have it. These mashed potatoes are da BOMB, people and you’ll want to add them to your Thanksgiving table. Give them a test run in the next few weeks before the actual day and report back to me so I can say, “I told you so!”
No, I would never do that. That line is reserved for the hubster. 😉
