My mother had made creamed potatoes all my life and I loved them so much. That particular day I was so proud of making them all by myself (with a few suggestions from my uncle), that until this day I still remember how proud I was!

This is the way my Mom has always made them, and she has always called them creamed potatoes (where most of the world calls them mashed potatoes). She usually reserves a bit of the cooking liquid and uses it to beat the potatoes. This way less milk and butter is used so they have a bit less fat and calories. Thanks for posting!
