I found out where I am teaching next semester! And, if it all works out, I will be teaching high school Trig, Pre-Calc, and AP Calculus. Woah! I have to go remember all that now! But actually, I am so excited. Plus, this is going to be such a different experience from teaching middle school algebra. I can't wait! The high school has block scheduling, which will be new for me, and periods are 90 minutes instead of the 50 that I am used to. Overall, I am going to learn a whole lot and I can't wait to get started!
Also, today I am sharing the recipe I used for Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes from my Thanksgiving Feast! This was a yummy recipe that was totally simply. Make it and you won't regret it!
Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes (adapted from Food Network)
7 lbs. russet potatoes, peeled
4 tbsp salt
32 fluid oz. half and half
12 cloves garlic, crushed
12-14 oz grated Parmesan
Freshly ground black pepper
1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and place potatoes in the pot. Cover and let cook until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. Drain and place potatoes back in the pot.
2. Heat the half and half in a saucepan until simmering and add in the garlic. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour the half and half into the pot with the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. Add in salt and Parmesan. Season with pepper and more salt. Serve immediately, or keep warm until ready to serve.
