Guess Who I Heard From?

It's snowing. Guess who called this morning?

Mr. Threatening: "Move your car or your vehicle will be towed. If you don't move your car, you'll be fined $250 and we will take your first-born and pets weighing less than 10 pounds. You have been warned." 

At the end of the message, Mr. T sighed. So early in the winter and he's worn out already. Where is this man's stamina?!

Such a good question, Teri. If there were spots OFF the streets, people would have moved their cards there a long time ago.

Mr. T is not a good "reasoner."

I think I'll whip up some Killer Mashed Potatoes right now. Not for Mr. T though, if you catch my drift.

You can make some, Dale:

Cook up 7 lbs potatoes (peeled, sliced, mashed)
THEN put 12-16 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese (the real stuff, not whipped) into the microwave to soften for about 30 sec. Add to the mashed potatoes.
MELT 1 stick butter, add to mashed potatoes. Add to the mashed potatoes.
ADD 4-6 oz. sour cream.
STIR all together well. Place in baking dish and place in oven for 40 min at 350.

Guests will swoon. Some will have heart attacks. Oops. But all will enjoy these yummy mashed potatoes.

Why do I have the urge to make a car out of mashed potatoes?

If you make the killer mashed potatoes into the shape of a car, and let the potatoes sit in your freezer long enough, you will in fact have a frozen killer potato car.

But be careful, because Mr. T. will require you move the frozen killer potato car in snowy weather.

BTW, more snow is expected on Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. Move that car, mister!

Normally I like having snow. This year?.... I'm with Mr. T, I'm getting a little sick of it. -sigh-

Now if the snow was made of killer mashed potatoes, all fluffy and warm (even if it is a bit heavy to shovel) then maybe I'd enjoy it a bit more.

They are talking about a "Snow Bomb" here, for the East Coast of the USA. I have made an igloo out of the mashed potatoes and am crawling into it. Hopefully it will be Spring when I munch my way out.

Sushiboy, I thought you tanked! (sorry to use the "almost name" of your adorable little boy like that).

Killer mashed potatoes can get you through anything.

I like Sans Pantaloons' idea, make an igloo of the KMP and eat your way out of there--should be out by Spring ... or possibly as late by Summer.

It's snowing right now. So sick of it.
