    Trinkets's Note:

    One summer our nephew, Edward, lived with us and worked on fences. He is an excellent home chef and has always been interested in cooking. One night that summer we took him to dinner at K-Paul's in New Orleans, Paul Prudhomme's restaurant. Edward loved the mashed potatoes so much he asked our waitress what the secret was and she said evaporated milk and a bit of the cooking water. Well, ever since then I have made my mashed potatoes with evaporated milk and the flavor cannot be beat.

      Perfect taters! There was just enough of everything to be creamy and fluffy. I like using yukon golds for my mashed potatoes because they have a creamier texture and you don't have to peel them. My Gamma also used potato water for everything, so I learned early to save it to make the best dishes. I served this with Boomette's Braised Beef With Tea. These two together are a perfect comfort dinner with some for later. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Tag. Thanks! :)
