I have a confession to make to all of you. You know how I'm always going on about canning and making my own chicken stock and baking my own bread. Well... I don't always make everything from scratch. In fact I have a little secret. I use instant mashed potatoes. A lot.
These are delicious and easy and quick. I also use them in breads and I can make a quick potato soup with them. What can I say sometimes I just don't feel like peeling and boiling and mashing for just the two of us. This is the only brand I can stand because there are no additives or preservatives. And no one is paying me to say this, I just like 'em. I get them at Costco.
There! Glad that's off my chest. How about you? Any time savers or not quite homemade things that you just can't do without? Time to fess up you're among friends.
Added on 12/3/12: Judging from the comments I'm not the only person out there who uses instant mashed potatoes! I just may be the only one who felt guilty about it! LOL
Until next time,
