Thanks for the advice. DH's brother can't stand instant potatoes. Years ago I had a small family group for dinner on Mother's Day. I wasn't going to spend all day in the kitchen since I am a mother, too. I doctored up the instant potatoes with sour cream, always let them sit for a while, reheat if necessary.
Then took a deep breath when his brother said to his wife, "See, Donna, you can tell Carol doesn't use instant potatoes". I kept my mouth shut, but have never forgotten his exact words.
If I can get a meat and potato man to think they are regular mashed potatoes, I have been successful.
I make wonderful fresh mashed potatoes, but they are loaded with calories.
