There's always some ground turkey in my freezer. It's great to have around for when you want something quick. I use it for chilis, burgers, tacos, and quick meatballs. These only take about 10 minutes in the oven, just enough time to mash some potatoes.
And in that vein - I tried a new recipe for mashed potatoes. Normally I mash together buttermilk, butter, potatoes, and garlic. On my cooking board, a lot of people substitute cream cheese for my buttermilk. I thought I would try it. I will never do that again. The cream cheese gave the potatoes an unpleasant plasticy consistency. You can kinda see that in the "shine" of the potatoes in the picture.
