Time Saving Tips
1. Do you by the 5 or 10 pound bag of potatoes and only boil a few to make mashed potatoes? Why not make the entire bag at once. It will not take you that much longer to peel and cut all the potatoes. Potatoes are very cheap for the amount of pounds you get for what you pay. Peel all the potatoes and cut them up in a large pot of water. Boil them and then smash them. I like to add sour cream or plain nonfat Greek yogurt and garlic. This makes them creamy and delicious. Take what you are going to use that night and freeze the rest in Ziplock bags labeled with the date. This is way better than boxed potatoes for next time.
