For Phillies Sunday night baseball, we were going to CH's house for smoked ribs. Yum!
So, I wanted to make mashed potatoes. Figured it was savory, and FAST!
JW and I spent the day running errands, hanging out at Lowe's (waiting for someone to give us a new bathroom), hanging hooks, and laying carpet tiles.
I get this text message from DSG, "Yo W! You should make scalloped potatoes :)". Really?! Are you kidding me?! I don't want to do that. I waited 3 1/2 hours before replying, "For you.... but they're annoying". "Yes they are :)"
I added foil, and baked for an hour and 15 minutes. I took it out because the bubbling over started burning on the oven floor. It was soooo liquidy I took a measuring cup and poured of 3/4 of the milk and thought it was still runny, and not very appetizing. I sprinkled tons of parmesan cheese on top and threw back in the oven. When JW was ready to go, I took it out and reapplied foil and carted it across town.
We got to the party and LR had brownies that needed to bake, so I threw in the potatoes too. When they came out, they seemed a lot less runny. After checking out other online photos, I think other recipes would have been better, this one, was just too boring! Not enough butter, no onion, not enough garlic, no cheese. I mean come on. Stupid Epicurious...

Oh well, all my friends thought it was ok. I ate three servings. Yay Phils!
