Guys, I’ve been craving mashed potatoes like crazy lately. I think it’s safe to say that Thanksgiving food is definitely on my mind right now! Move aside Halloween candy (which I may have eaten way too much of), it’s time for these Creamy Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes!
I’m especially excited about this recipe because as it turns out, this year will be my very first time (ever) to host Thanksgiving. I’ve always gone to my parents house, but now that we’re living in Edna The House, my family thought it would be fun to have it here. I’m so excited, y’all! Any tips for hosting Thanksgiving for the first time??
