Mash with a twist. Fun fact: My mother and father divorced when I was 2. For a variety of reasons i would not see him again until i was 25 when i would go and live with him and his family for about 8 months.
You know how Will on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air went to stay with his Uncle and the show primarily dealt with the differences he experienced from growing up to in one environment to now finding himself in a completely different environment?
And funny enough these mashed potatoes, to me, are an exact representation of that.
I remember the first dinner i had with him he made mashed potatoes and added a hard boiled egg to it. I remember thinking to myself - he's fucking up the mash.haha My mother never made them that way and neither did i. But thats how they made them here and it threw me off. They were bomb though. And it is something that has stayed with me for a very long time. 16 years in fact. Occassionally, ill make them this way. Kind of my nod to sometimes different is good.
