Simply put, these are my mommas mash potatoes at which she is hugely famous for. Every holiday or event that has to do with family and they're food involved, everyone is always begging my mother to make her famous mash potatoes. It's an ordinary mash potato recipe, however, everyone says that my momma makes it just right.
My mother hadn't made her famous mash potatoes in what seems like forever. She's been getting lazy and stopped making it. She's been getting the store bought kind now. Eww. Yesterday though, my boyfriend requested that my mother make her mash potatoes at least once for him to try. He had never tried he mash potatoes before, and he being the mash potato freak that he is, he was interested to see what these mash potatoes were all about.
So, my mom actually made her famous mash potatoes for the first time in a couple years. My father and my brother were extremely happy that she made her mash potatoes for once, and my boyfriend really enjoyed and approved her mash potatoes as being one of the best he'd had. Major kudos to my mommy!
