323. 12 Days of Recipes, Day 6: Mashed Potato Bar

 Here’s a great way to bring something unique to your holiday buffet or table.  A mashed potato bar can be loads of fun and it’s our featured item for Day 6 of our 12 Days of Recipes here at 365Barrington.com.

I recently helped throw a baby shower for my cousin who craved mashed potatoes throughout her pregnancy. We decided the mashed potato bar was the way to go for the menu, and it was a huge hit.

Favorite toppings were the French’s Fried Onions and Sundried Tomatoes.  Another idea I’ve seen at weddings is to serve both the scoops of mashed potato and the toppings in martini glasses.
Following is a list of other items we used or you could try. Just make a heaping amount of mashed potatoes, and place all toppings in serving bowls with spoons……

262. Organize Dinner Like Mom/Author, Kelly Donlea

 There’s a cookbook author and mother of three here in Barrington who is building a reputation for the system she devised to help busy moms put dinner on the table every night. Her name is Kelly Donlea, her brand new cookbook just came out, and you can meet her in person in Barrington tomorrow as she demonstrates how to make two delicious holiday meals that are related, but secretly separate.

The idea of remaking meals is the subject of her latest book, called “40 Dinner Duos – Cook Once, EAT Twice”. This book offers dozens of Dinner Duos that use the same main course (and cooking efforts) for two night’s dinners to make an entirely different meal another night.…

Hi guys! Today's Word of the Day is a total divergence from anything we've covered before -- 鳄梨 è lí - avocado!

That's right, we might just be exploring some foods over the next few days, starting with the beautiful avocado. Incidentally, 鳄 è means "alligator," and 梨 lí means "pear," making the bumpy-skinned Persea americana an "alligator pear" in popular usage 🙃

Oh -- speaking of food -- did we mention that we'll be having a meeting this Wednesday at 4:30? We'll be making fried rice -- you should probably grab those ingredients before they are sold out from all the stores due to popular demand for participation in this meeting! 😂 Recipe can be found on our GroupMe -- message here, email Ms. Stumpf, talk to a friend... the possibilities are endless for you to get the word! 😁
