I feel I have to cheat every once in awhile. I still watch how much I`m taking in so I don`t gain the weight or I make sure I get extra walking in.

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.

Funny you mention mashed potatoes because just last night I used instant mashed potatoes (best ones I know of and they come from Sam's Club)and quadrupled the batch as I was making for 9 people. Had difficulty getting them the right consistency as I add both milk and sour cream. I actually had to use my potato masher to work on them.
Put butter on top and heated more in microwave. Was speechless when grandkids told their mother they wished she would learn to make mashed potatoes like Grandma does. I haven't told her the truth yet and wonder if I should.
