Corn and Asparagus

Merry Christmas everyone!
I do apologise for my absence over the past couple of weeks – Christmas spirit just got the better of me and I didn’t have time to post. I have been missing you all so much though and I have been working on some great recipes I’ll share over the next few weeks.

Today’s post is a simple side dish that goes well with roast dinners, BBQs or even as a light lunch on it’s own. While the dish does sound a bit different to those that have never heard of it, I grew up eating corn and asparagus and I know it’s something tasty. 🙂

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes is a tasty side dish that works great with any meal, but especially with our wonderful CHICKEN PIE.

Mashed Potatoes are delicious. I know you can buy it in a packet mix or frozen portions, but nothing beats fresh, creamy mashed potatoes. Everyone has their own way as to make it, this is just how I do it. I like to buy the type of potatoes from the supermarket that don’t require peeling as the skin has a lot of nutrients in it.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • You’ll need 1- 1 ½ potatoes per person
  • Chives
  • Salt (iodised)
  • Pepper
  • ÂĽ Cup milk (the more potatoes used the more milk required)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
