This may be really out of topic but I just made myself supper(adults don't have mom anymore)I'm right out of college by the way. Oh,my parents didn't pay for my school either. I had a Student Loan and I worked at Pizza Hut through my four years. But back to the topic. I'm sure everyone likes mash potatoes, but the effort involved in peeling them, boiling them, mashing them. Can never equal the ease of instant mashed potatoes. I truly love them! Boil a cup and a half of water,half a cup of milk, and two spoons of butter.Once it boils, remove from heat, add pouch, then wait 5 minutes. They may taste a little different than homemade but who cares. What your favorite quick meal? In my opinion, it shouldn't take longer for me to cook than it does to eat. I'm just a slave to the microwave and to Pizza Pops.
