Wasabi_Mashed_Potatoes_IMG_1152Tonight we had good old Parmesan Chicken Goujons. I was going to make a new kind of oven fries, which are even easier than my usual recipe. Actually, they’re not really easier, just easier to do while baby wearing.

Anyhow, I got to nursing the baby while the potatoes were par-boiling, and next thing I knew they were too soft to make oven fries with. So I made mashed potatoes. Wasabi mashed potatoes! Remember those?

I don’t have a recipe. I just mashed the spuds with a few squirts of the wasabi that comes in a tube, butter and heavy cream. I highly recommend that you too do this, tasting as you go, until it tastes just right.

You’ll know you’ve got it right, when the flavor brings you right back to the late 1990’s (or possibly the early aughts)*. Back when, if you’re my age, it’s possible you were out on a date with someone who may or may not have turned out to be your spouse. Back when you most definitely didn’t have kids!

Yeah. That’s about as good as it gets around here these days.

*If you’re too young to know what I’m talking about, just add wasabi till it tastes good.
