One Year Down…​Thank You For Giving Me A Chance

It has officially been 1 year since I started this particular blog and I have been welcomed into the blog world with open arms. I have to admit that every time I write something I second guess myself. I wonder if it’s interesting enough to get you to come back and view another post. I always try to just be myself and that alone is scary.

I remember when I first started my blog I was approached by a well known public figure and he gave me THE BEST pointer. He told me if I wanted my blog to be successive then I had to remain truthful to myself. Choose topics that hit me deep in my core and then just go. Talk the way I do every day, and make sure my personality is present at all times. When he told me this I said well what if people don’t like me or what I have to say?

He responded, “Do you have friends”? “Do they like to engage with you”? “After 17 years does your husband still like you and engage with you”? But most importantly “Do you like you and find yourself interesting”? I thought fair enough!

So here we go! My content is going to be bananas this year, filled with food, diets, crafts, workouts, real talk, and my Life. I am elated to welcome you all to my world.

I know that there are thousands and thousands of blogs that you could have joined or read but you chose mine and I’m honored!

Red mashed 🥔

There are so many yummy recipes that involve potatoes and I can’t wait to share some of my favorites. So what better way to start then with red mashed potatoes.  The one thing that you have to keep in mind with a potato recipe is that they are all different sizes. You can buy 3 bags of potatoes and they will all relatively be different sizes. Also please make sure you wash and scrub the potatoes before you slice your potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 2lb bag of red potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste

Cut the potatoes into wedges and place in boiling water until tender, drain water and add butter, sour cream, seasonings to the mashed potatoes and then slowly pour in the milk. Note that if add to much milk your potatoes won’t be thick and smooth.

You could have chosen any blog to read but you chose mine and I am honored!
