So, I realize this is coming a little too late to all of you, given it was inspired by our Thanksgiving leftovers. Maybe you could pin it, save it or remember it for later?
I'm sure you'll be in the same 'boat' as me again someday. Leftovers. Love them, for a while. But cannot throw them out. I don't know how this is possible, but we somehow made too many Thanksgiving mashed potatoes. Shocking, huh?!
Couldn't throw them away, and had an idea. Leftover mashed potato soup. I whipped it up...and you know, it was delicious! So good that I don't want to forget what I did. We'll be having this again. Blogging is the best way for me to remember recipes, as I tend to misplace paper recipes (oops). I hope you all don't mind.
