Our afternoon and evening were spent stuffing ourselves, not a bird, for which I was thankful. Though I've never sampled Tofurky, I've heard comments ranging from "pretty good" to "tastes like cardboard." I think I'll skip it. For what others think of Tofurky, click here and here.
Since Jackie came all the way from Spokane to dine with us, I made her mom's mashed potato recipe, which was quite tasty and reheats nicely.
Swedish Green Potatoes
6 potatoes, peeled
1 stick butter/margarine (I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
3/4 c. light sour cream
2 t salt (maybe a little more)
1 t sugar
1/4 t pepper
2 T chopped chives or onion
1 1/2 t dill (often a touch more)
1 pkg. (10 oz) chopped spinach, thawed
Cook potatoes and mash. Mix in butter, sour cream, salt, sugar, pepper, chives and dill. Squeeze moisture out of spinach and add to potatoes. With electric mixer combine until fluffy. Place in greased casserole and bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
