Creamy Red-Skin Mashed Potatoes

Saturday, July 16, 2011

We had the perfect weather for grilling out last night. A warm summer night, with a slight breeze, family and friends together, dogs playing in the yards, chicken and corn on the grill, southern food in the making and music on the radio.

Just Perfect.

We have hay fields behind the house and our large dog Chloe always seems to want to run through them after they've been cut for the year.

Well yesterday evening, out little Bella decided she needed to follow Chloe haha. :) I love living in the country.

I wanted to share the Red-Skin Mashed Potatoes recipe we made last night. These were perfect to go with a perfect night :)
