As I said yesterday, I love garlic and anything that has garlic in it. My other love or maybe my first love? Potatoes. Gosh, if you ever wanted to kill me by poisoning my food, just make some amazing scalloped potatoes and feed me, I will chow that thing down faster than Bolt.
So if I love potatoes, and I love garlic then imagine what kind of mouthgarsm I get from a mix of the two? If you love both of them too close your eyes and imagine the wonderful aroma of garlic, a nice mild sweet taste of roasted garlic mixed in with creamy potato mash and your stew to boot. Doesn’t that sound like heaven?
Let me take you to heaven.

- salt to taste

Place potatoes in a sufuria (pot) of tap water. Add salt then bring to boil. Boil till the potatoes are soft enough to break with a fork. Drain.
Add in the butter, cream and garlic and mash through. Add salt to to taste if need be.
