Spice up those Mashed Potatoes……………

Add cream cheese to your mashed potatoes so they are extra creamy. Add boursin cheese for potatoes that rich, creamy, and lighter in calories. Add a teaspoon of Wasabi powder for spicy Japanese style potatoes. Mash your potatoes with Greek yogurt to make a healthier version that is still creamy and tangy.

How Long You Can Keep Leftover Mashed Potatoes……………..

Mashed potatoes should easily last three to five days in the fridge if stored correctly and within two hours of cooking. This means ensuring there isn’t any moisture buildup under the lid that could encourage the growth of bacteria.

You can also add minced garlic or garlic powder which enhances potatoes, especially when followed by a healthy sprinkling of shredded cheese. Bottled ranch dressing or dry ranch dressing mix offers a zesty kick. Other favorites are dill, chives and crumbled bacon. Enjoy those Mashed Taters!

Today’s Menu: Bob Evans (Home Delivered)

 

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside we had rain showers in the morning and cloudy and 68 degrees for the afternoon. We have had up to 3-4 inches of rain the past 3 days, a lot of local flooding. So not much going on, waiting out the virus. The Kitchen is closed and we had Bob Evans deliver our Dinner tonight! Mom had a Slow Roasted Turkey Dinner while I had the Lemon Pepper Sole.

 

 

 

I was tired of cooking and I needed a day off. So I had an email come in from Bob Evans come yesterday and they were offering Free Delivery! So it had been quite some time since I had Bob Evans so it sounded good. Mom ordered the Slow Roasted Turkey and Dressing Dinner. With sides of Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Stuffing, Carrots, Cranberry Relish, and a Roll. For myself I ordered the Lemon Pepper Sole. I had sides of Sugar Snap Peas and a Roll, I gave the Roll to Mom. Both Dinners were Delicious and they arrived Hot. We Really enjoyed it! Thank you Bob Evans! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – CORNED BUFFALO BRISKET WITH COLCANNON

March 4, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a CORNED BUFFALO BRISKET WITH COLCANNON. Made using Wild Idea Corned Buffalo Brisket and 1 Bottle of Beer. There’s also a recipe for the Colcannon. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Corned Buffalo Brisket along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! http://wildideabuffalo.com/

CORNED BUFFALO BRISKET WITH COLCANNON
Our heat and eat Corned Buffalo Brisket just might be the very best thing that we make! All the corned brisket flavor, but made with our 100% grass-fed/grass-finished bison and no added nitrites. Here are the very simple heating recommendations and my recipe for Colcanon. You will love this!

Ingredients for Corned Brisket:

1 – Wild Idea Corned Buffalo Brisket, with package juices and seasoning ½ to 1 – bottle beer (avoid stout or dark beer)

Instructions:

1 – In a heavy pan over medium high heat, add beer and package contents.
2 – Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low and allow to heat through. About 7 minutes.
3 -Transfer Corned Brisket to cutting board and pull apart in pieces or slice.

Colcannon (Irish mashed potatoes with cabbage or kale.)
A great twist on your standard mashed potatoes and a great way to get some extra veggies in. Note: I used both cabbage & kale for a greener outcome and I also pureed a second time in my smoothie blender, which produced green potatoes. If you do not puree greens twice, your potatoes will be a very pale green with pieces of vegetables, which is equally delicious and pretty.

Colcannon Ingredients:

2 – lbs. butter potatoes or golden potatoes, washed

½ – lb. cabbage or kale, sliced
¼ – cup parsley sprigs

4 – green onions, chopped

½ – cup hot milk

3 – tablespoons butter
, melted, plus more for serving
2 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
water
salt

Preparation:
1 – Place potatoes in pot of boiling water and simmer until fork tender, about 30 minutes. Drain all but 1 inch of Wild Ideawater from the pot and continue to cook uncovered until water is gone and pan bottom is dry.
2 – Allow the potatoes to cool a bit for easy handling and then pull the skins off the cooked potatoes while they are still warm.
3 – While potatoes are cooking, in another pot, bring about 2 cups of salted water to a boil. Add cabbage or kale, cover and simmer until tender. About 5 minutes. Add parsley and green onions and continue to simmer for two minutes.
4 – Drain vegetables in a colander. Press vegetables with the back of a spoon to release water. Place cabbage mixture in blender or food processor with ¼ cup hot milk and process until finely chopped.
5 – Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher. Then add ¼ cup hot milk, melted butter, salt and pepper, and mix until fluffy.
6 – Add the cabbage puree and mix until just incorporated. Reheat if needed before serving. Pass with extra butter.
