Woohoo! It's spring break! Last week, we battled sickness around here with 4 of the kids. The kids are feeling much better, however, Mr Plain and I are a bit under the weather. Nothing too serious, just enough to kinda bug you. Mild colds is a good way to put it. Oh well, it was to be expected, right?
OK, here is a fabulous recipe for you to make. This is another one of my mom's recipes. She has made these forever and gave me the recipe years ago in an attempt to get me to make them myself. I finally decided to give them a try. Mashed potatoes or just regular baked can get a bit dull, so, these, are a bit of a change.
They aren't to tough to make, but, take a bit of baking time, so, start them early :)
