Lumpy Spuds


Lumpy Spuds

Patricia Reitz

I don't know about your family, but we love our mashed potatoes lumpy.  We like to keep the skin on our potatoes too.  Have I lost you yet?  Lol.  Have no fear, if you prefer smooth mashed potatoes with no skins, peel them and mash them until smooth or press the potatoes through a potato ricer
