      I certainly watched DH with apprehension when I served this to him for a trial run. I was looking for things that he can prepare for himself with a minimal amount of effort, be nutritious and shelf stable. We are normally not fans of 'instant mashed potatoes' fact, I only keep the stuff in the house for bread making, but I figured when Di suggested it, why not?! We were very pleasantly surprised. All of the flavors tend to over-come the 'instant' taste of the instant potatoes...yippee. DH wanted me to send enough for at least three servings (pre-measured for him) for this 5-day stretch out. None of my family has ever cared for seasoning salt (the brand name product anyway), so I substituted Soul Seasoning for that. Otherwise, I followed directions exactly as stated. Thank you for another winner in my house Di!!! Do you happen to have any more 'instant soups'? ;-)

      I used the instant mashed potatoes from Gordon's Food and the soup was much too thick with 1/2 cup mix to 1 cup of boiling water. I used 1/4 cup of the mix and it was much better. I also tried one batch using creamora instead of dried milk and it was very creamy tasting. We are using it when we go camping. It is very good. Glenda P.

      Like Cindy Lynn, we're leary of instant mashed potatoes so I made up a test batch first to make sure we would even like it and hubby immediately ate 2 bowls and wanted more. I tried it myself and it was pretty good considering it was a dry soup mix. Although next time I cook some up I'll use a little less water to make it thicker. I made up 3 quarts of the soup mix for my husband to take to work. He gets tired of cold lunches every day and needs something warm in his belly. Great idea Di! Thanks for sharing!
