Mash Potato

IT's been a while since my latest entry. I'm out of idea at the moment plus it had been a tiring week for me as all my three daughters were caught by fever. So since all my daughters are now healthy...I'm back in the mood of updating my blogs. Last weekend I prepared Lamb Chop for dinner. I'm kinda bored of having rice everyday and feeling like having something different. Here is a recipe on how to make Mash POtato....

Mash POtato

1/2 potatos....peeled(I prefer Australian white potato)
1 table spoon butter
3/4 cup of fresh milk
salt and pepper to taste


Method:

- In a pot...boil the potato in a salted water until tender (an hour or so).
- when the potato is ready....drain them and put it in a bowl and mash it with a masher or just a fork.

- put in the butter and keep mashing.....followed by the milk....finally seasoned with salt and pepper.

- Ready to be served.



The Gravy

2 table spoon of butter
3 table spoon of flour (all purpose flour)
1 1/2 cup of chicken stock (or you can just use water)
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
some of the drips from the steak or lamb chop or roasts...

Method:

- In a pan....heat the butter and when it melts add in the flour and stirr...keep stiring ,or if you're preparing a beef or chicken roast just use the pan that you use to roast the chicken/beef with the drips and juices from the chicken/beef. This will give the gravy more taste and darker colour.

- while stirring the flour...add in the water/chicken stock and leave it to boil.
- add in the Worcestershire sauce,salt and pepper.....stirr until the gravy turns out to be a little bit thick.

- turn off the heat and pour the gravy over mash potato and your roast. Yummy...!
