This recipe is a keeper, folks! Thank you so much, Kim, I couldn't get hubby to go for ANY kind of shepherd's pie (too much gunk in them, with the recipes I had) but I read the ingredients over the phone to him at work yesterday and he agreed to try it. Wooooo!
Thanks so much, Kim!
Hugs,
Pook
thanks very much :) glad you liked it...

Ok, i was just asking. Because to me instant potatoes taste more like scalloped potatoes (or at least the ones my mom makes) than actual potatoes alone. I was just seeing if it was the taste of the instant potatoes you were looking for for this recipe.

I think they add transfat preseratives to instant potatoes to give them a longer shelf life that might explain why they have that scalloped potato flavor.

Yeah, that could explain it.
That could also explain why I get more and more sick of it everytime I have them. I have had them alot since I started dating Jillian. She hates any side dish her parents can think of, so they make her instant potatoes every meal, and I have to eat them with her.

When I was growing up, it seemed like we had cream style corn as a side dish at every meal. My sister was dating a guy who visited her at our house and was always invited for dinner. One day, he simply said "I hate corn." It was like my sister just sat there staring at him until somebody passed him the green beans.
After that, no matter what the two of them disagreed about, it was always his fault because he did not like corn! lol

Haha!
I don't eat at my girlfriend house much now that she's at school. But it may come. Well, maybe instead of saying it. I'll hint it, but taking less and less each time until it comes to a point when I offer to make real mashed potatoes instead!

Gobo, just because the two of you are going together does not mean that both of you have to eat the very same things!! My hubby likes many things that I won't eat but I fix it for him and something else that I like. She more than likely was attracted to you for some of your differences; if you change completely over to her way, you will become boring to her after awhile. Just keep that in mind.
