We were in a hurry… It was about 1 in the afternoon and we now arrived at home after a busy morning in Tunapuna shopping. And we were dying of hunger. Cooking an elaborate meal with meat was out of the question, so my wife quickly grabbed some potatoes while I chopped some carrots and other ingredients to stir fry.
Need a Quick Meal?
The pot of water was on the stove over high heat … soon it came to a boil and in the potatoes went; washed, whole and unpeeled ( no time to peel anything). A little more and we would have been begging the potatoes to cook faster…in the mean time all I could do was gulp a glass of water to assuage the raging hunger….
The carrots and snap beans were ready to stir fry….. (didn’t even bother to chop the beans)
Thinking to myself while cooking: OK …a little oil…saute onions and garlic… throw in carrots and beans …fry quickly….turn heat a little higher ….fry faster …turn …turn…toss….make sure to turn often ….add salt and seasonings, soy sauce …fry some more …OK it’s good, it’s good….Oh and add pepper!
The vegetables were done and now it was just to make the mashed potatoes. Well, my wife handled that while I grabbed some plates and started the share the veggies. …in “two twos” mashed potatoes were done; click! click! click! take out photos; grab a fork and dig in……..
That afternoon I had a renewed appreciation for mashed potatoes as I finished the last morsel; it came to the rescue. Maybe you would not be as hungry as I was, to make this mashed potatoes recipe, but for a “fast cook” it was worth it. Try it and see for yourself and add a little piece of meat or fish; it will surely keep you filled for a few hours. So if you’re in a hurry without further ado here’s mashed potatoes! 🙂

2-3 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup milk (adjust for moisture)
1/2 teaspoon fresh parsley and thyme (finely chopped)

You may have to add a little more milk if you like it light and smooth.
Anyhow I gone again. See you soon with another recipe. Bye!
