TGI Friday's White Cheddar Mashed Potato

My cat thinks he is a dog.
This would be an even stranger statement if my last cat (female) had not have been the same way!
(no, they never met. My female passed away and just about a year later, the girl child decided she needed another)

They both wait outside the bathroom door when you are showering.
They both did their best to position themselves so they could see all three of us and what we are doing. Very protective!

They both played fetch..over and over again. If you are not in the mood, they would both drop them on your head or into your lap to say "come on now, just another minute"!

You might wonder what prompted me to tell you this.
I am sitting on the couch, facing the front door typing. I see Mr. Sir waiting. He knows "Daddy" is late coming home. He is turning circles. Not able to get comfortable until he knows all of his family is home.

He hearts us.
(for about 10 seconds a day, then he turns back into satan cat)

2 Lbs red potato, washed (not peeled) cut into 1 inch chunks
Salt and Pepper
2 oz garlic butter (to follow)
⅓ Cup heavy cream
4 oz aged white cheddar cheese, shredded


1. Boil water, cook potato for 5-10 minutes or until potato is soft. Drain

2. Add cheese, cream, garlic butter, salt and pepper to taste.

3. Mash potato

Garlic Butter:
Saute 1 Tsp minced garlic in 1 Tbsp oil for 2 minutes until soft. Mix with room temperature butter and 1 Tsp fresh parsley.
