Riley's mouth is healing. He is able to have strong rubber bands now instead of only wire. He still has to have his jaws fixated for at least another 4 weeks.
We got to see my sister Annette for a minute up there and she said she notices that I am getting skinnier..SCORE!
Time to make some more mashed potatoes for his syringe!
Speaking of mashed potatoes, I have some sneaky, but killer ideas for your next bowl full.
1. I use CHICKEN or VEGIE broth instead of cream...shhhhh...it gives TONS of flavor without the calories of loads of butter and cream. I also put 3 garlic cloves in with the potatoes to boil..yummo. sea salt, pepper and some greek yogurt for amazing creaminess. Just try it. I use yukon gold potatoes for this because they are already beautifully golden and have a buttery flavor/texture.
2. Sometimes I sneak in some pureed cauliflower ..major cancer-fighter. It adds a cool flavor, and the kids are still more apt to eat mashed potatoes than handing them limp,boiled cauliflower I wont tell you why mine wont eat it, because they eat almost any other vegetable. All I can say is thank you JORDAN (my number 2 daughter).
3. Try this amazing dish. roast 2 sweet potatoes and mash them in with 5 yukon gold potatoes. Add the chicken broth, sea salt and pepper and a bit of plain greek yogurt....soooo good!
