It’s been way below freezing for days in our part of the country. That’s as good an excuse as any to have some primo comfort food—luscious mashed potatoes—with tonight’s grilled chicken.
Basic mashed potatoes with butter, salt and pepper become even more delicious with the addition of some herbs, fresh or dried. This recipe from McCormick.com adds garlic, rosemary and parsley. You can also use thyme, tarragon or sage.
