It's that time of year. You know what I'm talking about. The Post Thanksgiving Slump. Too much turkey. Too much rich food. Too much house cleaning. Black Friday. Cyber Monday. It's like the week leading up to Thanksgiving is spent preparing for family and friends and food comas, and the week after is spent jumping right into the next holiday by shopping all these 'special days of discount' WHILE going through your turkey coma.
So, this recipe came out of the November 2010 issue of Food Network Magazine and I did this recipe and loved it SO MUCH that I still have the magazine to this day. This recipe is credit to Alex Guarnaschelli who was the host of Alex's Day Off TV show and they were called 'Parker House Rolls'. I guarantee you that if you have a big family get together, you'll want to make this recipe twice.
Guess what?! It's Friday! That means we're almost to the weekend! Woot, woot!
No one eats leftover mashed potatoes in this house. So today, I'm making a mashed potato soup that can easily be dressed up or down according to your personal tastes.
Sometimes we need outlets, non judgemental ones, and I know for certain my computer isn't going to say something witty or rhetorical or what not when I sit down and start typing, so it's easier to let things just flow from my fingertips. I wanted to talk a little about my experiences of being a parent.
If it's called 'Butter Pecan' does that mean it's Southern? I don't know but I can tell you these Butter Pecan Pancakes, inspired by a Southern Belle, were delicious!
