Garlic Potatoes and Green beans

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

These two are the easiest thing in the world to make and they compliment each other very well.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes


2 lbs of potatoes, 5 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp (or 20, to taste) of butter, milk, and salt

Method to the Madness:

1. Peel, rinse, and dice potatoes (the smaller they are the faster they cook)

2. Add garlic and potatoes into a pot and cover with water.

3. Boil until potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes)

4. Drain potatoes.

5. Mash and add butter and salt to taste. Just add a little at a time until it's the flavor you want (we're real scientific about things like that around here)

6. Add milk in slowly, a little goes a LONG way. Milk is just to make it creamy. You do not want garlic potato soup.

Green Beans


green beans - fresh (or frozen), 2 tbsp. butter, lemon juice (half a lemon), and salt to taste

Throw eveything in a microwave safe bowl and heat until done (about 5 minutes)

Rocket Science!
