thought for tuesday

i have none. here is something to do with your leftover mashed potatoes. my husband commissioned me to make a potato pie. he had heard of sweet potato pie and he is a bit of a nut- so he wanted a regular potato pie. most of the time what comes to mind is a savory pie- but- i found a delicious sweet pie- and i can vouch because i made one and we ate it. so enjoy all of the leftovers and continue feasting until the new year! here it is- potato pie:

2 eggs
2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pastry for pie crust

prepare 9 inch pastry. heat oven to 425 degrees. beat eggs; beat in remaining ingredients. pour into crust and bake 15 minutes. reduce temperature to 350 degrees. bake until done in center and crust is browned, about 45 minutes.

I tell you, cinnamon and sugar will just about fix anything. We don't have one tsp of potatoes leftover. Darn.

In Talkeetna, Alaska, there is a place called the Talkeetna Roadhouse. There, they make a chocolate potato cake that is the densest, richest, most amazing chocolate cake I have ever tasted. And they will NOT part with the recipe. They are not friendly, until you eat the cake.

The pie sounds good too!

Actually, it does sound kinda good. I am a terrible cook. One time, I found a recipe for mayo biscuits, and decided to try it. OMFG!!! Even the DOGS wouldn't eat 'em.
