Mashed potato,
I may have led a sheltered life.
Mashed potato to me was spuds with a little butter and salt, very nice if the spuds are cooked through, mashed with love with a dollop of good salted butter. There it is, mashed potato.

Yesterday I was treated to dinner at my nieces before friends and relatives gathered for a party for her sons 21st birthday. She made two different dishes so we had a choice and she selected the sort of thing that could gently simmer for some time before it would be ruined . Beef Bourguignon or chicken Chassuer either with mashed potato. This mashed potato was delicious a meal in its self, no, you cant call it mashed potato I identified leek cabbage and a touch of parsley, it was like me and Denise, nothing short of gorgeous. O k I said having devoured more than a fair share with the Chassuer, "hows it done". The poor girl first baked a shed load of spuds scooped out all the potato from the skins, put the flesh through a ricer this looks like a large garlic press sauted or fried the leek and the blanched cabbage in a little butter when transparent folded the greens into the spuds with a little cream and some creme fresh and seasoned to taste with salt and pepper topped off with a fleck of flat leaf parsely.
This is a definite improvement on Cadbury's Smash. She went to so much trouble and care for a make shift eat on your lap Sunday lunch. After the first taste everyone just looked at each other to see if it was just you dreaming.
Up to know I have only derided all these cooking programmes on the Telly, not anymore, keep them coming if this is the effect there having.
