I am sad to say that this is my last hurrah with the Secret Recipe Club... :( It has been so much fun, finding new blogs to check out, trying new recipes that I might not have found with the club and just cooking up a storm. But, lately it seems that I am just not keeping up with the blog enough - sick kids, vacations, work and just life in general is coming up and all of that comes before a blog... So, rather then be someone that can't give her all to the group that she is in, I am going to bow out. I'll still be blogging (you should see the recipes piling up around here) but just more on my own terms! That being said...
This month I had the honor of checking out the blog groundcherry.wordpress.com/. Stephanie has a variety of gluten free, healthy, veggie recipe ideas on her blog and it was very interesting going through them. What does a meat and potatoes kind of girl find to make on a mainly veggie type blog? Why mashed potatoes of course!! They were a different taste from our regular potatoes and oddly addicting... Check them out sometime and take a step off the beaten path! :)
Dill Mashed Potatoes
(recipe found on groundcherry.wordpress.com)
4 medium red potatoes, scrubbed and diced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
dash of lemon juice
black pepper, to taste
Place potatoes in saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and allow to boil until potatoes are soft enough to pierce with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of potato water. Add remaining ingredients and mash with potato masher. Add potato water to create desired consistency (I only added a bit.) Enjoy these warm or cold!
